Imagine...Instantly Inclusive Movies and TV

Our Cup is Half Full

Thank you to every single contributor who backed us during our crowdfunding campaign. We raised almost $19,000 towards building an inclusive VOD experience for the millions around the world who live with vision loss. Despite not reaching our goal, Zagga was able to secure some grant funding to issue a down payment on  the development of our app. You can see what we’ve done in the Updates section of our
campaign page.

We’ll offer contributors a chance to beta test the service before we launch, so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you’ve landed on this page and want to pre-register for the service, simply visit our website and click on the Register link.

Much of our time has been spent putting the business structures in place so that Zagga can acquire further investment needed to fully launch. On the content side, we’ve got our first two major studio content commitments as well as 3 independent content providers on board.

Be sure to visit the updates section to find out where your perks are and what’s happening with the construction of this needed service.

Imagine…. Instantly Inclusive Movies and TV

More about Zagga: Zagga Entertainment is  creating a fully accessible website and mobile app that will provide access to movies and TV shows with described video for a monthly subscription fee. The funds raised here will be used to pay for the design, coding and testing of the website which will be the first platform for our service. Zagga Entertainment is engaging an experienced developer that has built video on demand sites and apps for other major video providers. Not only does the company understand how to build a VOD site that works, they also understand how to make that site usable and accessible.

The site will enable users to sign up for the service, search and browse a library of DV titles and watch described movies and TV shows with friends and family. The website will be tagged and labelled to work correctly with popular PC and Mac screen readers. Customers will be able to subscribe via credit card and gain access to exclusive content.

Over 10 million people live with vision loss in North America alone. As our population ages, vision loss will affect the people we love. If you know someone who is losing or has lost their vision, it’s my hope this service can bring you closer together over great visual media.
