New Features for Leading Travel App, EarthCamTV 2

National Camera Day marks one year of unique TV app, created to view the world's best webcams

A year ago today, EarthCam launched EarthCamTV 2, a fully interactive travel app that allows users to visit places all over the world using EarthCam’s global network of live cameras. Viewers can virtually revisit a favorite place or check out a dream travel destination. The app still holds the #1 spot among Amazon’s travel apps and EarthCamTV 2’s audience is growing rapidly on two additional platforms – Android TV and Apple TV. Over the past year, EarthCam has added new features, improved the user experience and added over 500 new camera locations. From Sydney’s Harbour Bridge to Brooklyn’s Coney Island, new cameras are added to the network day by day – expanding the travel opportunities for users.

With today’s launch anniversary release, new features include a shuffle mode which allows users to randomize the order of their custom watchlist. EarthCam has also doubled the camera preview time-limit for people who are using the free version of the app. This launch coincides with National Camera Day, which recognizes the important contribution of photography to our everyday lives.

EarthCamTV 2 is available now for Apple TV, Android TV and for Amazon’s complete range of Fire TV devices, at $4.99 annually for a fully customizable, ad-free experience. A free preview version is available, and commercial licensing is an option for media organizations, hospitality industries or businesses looking to set up unique, customized live camera experiences.
