How Knowledge Network Boosted Plays 100x using JW Player’s Superb Platform and Customer Service
Knowledge Network wanted to break into a new market by launching a video site for children. It needed to produce an exceptional video experience for an audience who grew
up using tablets. To engage and retain these young viewers, the Canadian public broadcaster aimed to move away from Flash to a stable HTML5 player that worked on any device.
After “many frustrations” with an old video solution, “JW Player came in and rescued us,” said Director of Web Channels Ravi Singh. The player offered a bandwidth selector, SDKs to customize the kids app, and closed captioning. The JW secret sauce, though, was personalized customer service. After “fantastic” onboarding, Singh could access quick support by picking up the phone. JW Player also regularly checked in. “Just that caring attention of calling your client means a lot.”

Its network for adults, Knowledge primetime, grew from 800,000 plays to more than 1.1 million plays between 2015-16. Due to flawless playback, user complaints dropped from “several times a day to maybe once a month,” said Singh. Because of JW Player’s excellent customer service and solutions, the partnership will grow. “Our main strategy is expanding our platforms,” said Singh, “and we’ll use JW Player wherever possible.”
