Hey Matchstickers!

Sorry for the terrible delay with this update. We have been very busy getting things in order and making arrangements to keep on keeping on with bringing Matchstick to you.

Hardware: Hardware is hard! We’ve made some progress with the CPU upgrade and will have some solid info soon on the exact specs we have selected for production. We think you guys will be pleased. Should be nailed down soon.

Software: We are making progress with the Matchstick iOS and Android app which will include setup and basic settings as well as ad-hoc and local streaming. Also, our progress with Mozilla and Microsoft to get the content we will want is moving along nicely! We’ve added some resources to the team that will help us create partnerships for the premium content across the board that will allow us to stay competitive in the marketplace. Remember, just because we will support DRM, does not mean you have to… ;)

Support: Customer support is another area we are adding resources to. Meet Andrew! We think KS community communication and updates should move more smoothly in April and moving forward! Please be nice to Andrew, he is here to help you-

Stay tuned in April for more updates - Onward!

The Matchstick Team and Andrew
