Stan is PS4’s one and only

With an incredibly rare placement, Stan left no room for any other competitor to hijack user attention on PS4 AU.

Stan’s ‘Twisted Metal’ expanded its landing page placement by adding a Dedicated Block in the ‘Featured’ row of the ‘Discover’ tab. The App utilised the space perfectly with bespoke artwork showing off 4 characters across the 4 small spots, with a strong Call to Action for the fans ‘Based on the Playstation cult classic video game’ within the larger spot.

There’s a new UI in town

This month, Vizio TV spiced things up with a New UI which banished the individual ‘Home’, ‘Shows’ and ‘Movies’ tabs to unify content with a single ‘Home’ tab. A sidebar is also now the way for Users to navigate through the platform rather than an overhead bar.

This move from Vizio TV is sure to keep users engaged and partners happy with an improvement for the visibility of their content.
