The growing world of online media and entertainment means that businesses need to be in complete control of their apps and websites around the world and around the clock.
Content needs to be readily accessible for consumers on any device and in any location, with pages loading quickly, reliably and in-full, to satisfy the expectations of ‘Generation Impatient’. It doesn’t take much to ruin an entertainment experience and in the realms of paid online viewing, even the slightest performance glitch can result in a significant loss of custom.
BugFinders has a global community of professionals with extensive experience in website and global app testing. Harnessing the power of the crowd means that we can make sure your applications stand up to real-world conditions and that they continue to delight your users no matter where they happen to be.

Challenges for Media & Entertainment
Competition is decidedly stiff in the world of media and entertainment. 80% of online users will abandon a website if a video stalls whilst loading and Google engineers warn that people will visit a site less often if it is just 250 milliseconds slower than a competitor’s.
Other challenges include:
Providing a seamless global experience across web and mobile
Coping with digital traffic jams
Application performance for the end-user, especially with data-hungry mobile video applications
How we help
Today, media and entertainment is a global industry, which means that content consumers are spread all around the world. These consumers expect a seamless experience on every device, in every location. The BugFinders crowdsourced software testing solution enables your web and mobile applications to be tested rigorously for performance-hindering issues across a multitude of devices quickly and on a global scale.
Multiple Device and Location Coverage
Missing images, long buffering times, inconsistent loading speeds – any such issue could make the difference between going viral and going bust. Software testing needs to be carried out on multiple devices, on multiple platforms, and in multiple locations. In-house, it might be possible to test just 10 different scenarios – but this doesn’t even scratch the surface. In order to cover 80% of the mobile traffic a media and entertainment company can expect, 250 separate devices need to be tested in different locations around the globe. BugFinders has a global network of more than 55,000 software testing professionals in 145 countries ready to deliver multi-device, functional software testing quickly and efficiently.
A Faster Way to Market
Crowdsourced software testing is a fast and reliable solution for unearthing issues with entertainment and media applications. In under 24 hours, mobile apps are put through their paces by hundreds of professional testers around the globe. For websites, usability testing is completed and reported in just 1-2 days. BugFinders can launch these multi-device global tests at the drop of a hat – all we need is an hour’s notice and our crowd testing solution is put into motion.
A global industry needs a global testing solution. In-house software testing is not only expensive, but inadequate in its capabilities to provide the round-the-world coverage that is required for media and entertainment applications. The BugFinders crowdsourced software testing model improves efficiency while cutting costs. Testers are paid per bug they find, not for the time they spend finding them. It is an incentivising model that produces fast and thorough results and eliminates the need for your company to pay in-house tester salaries.
