When you decide to launch or develop a streaming platform, user experience is at the center of every decision you take.

Whether you want to organize and manage your catalog, or propose a personalized experience, discover how Kinow widgets allow you to modulate your platform design and homepage display.


Do you consume a streaming service for personal use? If so, what importance do you give to navigation? You probably use the suggested categories to find ideas or to search for films that will best match your expectations.

You can decide which elements are visible to all (visitors) and which are accessible only to registered members. You can also customize the display according to the user country, in order to offer an experience as close as possible to each territory.

The slider is the first thing your users will see when they will arrive on your homepage. Thus it is really important to pay special attention to the visuals you display. Thanks to customizable buttons (call-to-action), use the slider to highlight the most important messages and redirect your users to the key pages of your platform : key videos, subscription offers, news, offer a movie to a friend, “about us”, ...
