Keek Prepares to Launch Mobile Live Stream Capability

Mobile Video Social Network Opens Signup to Early Adopters for Beta Version

TORONTO, ON and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 08, 2015) - Mobile video social network Keek (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQX: KEEKF) with more than 74 million members around the globe announced today it will add mobile live stream capability to its existing platform. The new feature will be called Keek Live.

Keek delivers a peek into the lives of celebrities, rising talent, and everyday people in their natural element. The prevalent use of the "front camera" by millions of users makes Keek the perfect place for "video selfies." Its 36-second format is the sweet spot for content creators to tell their story and express themselves. Keek Live, the new mobile live stream feature, will fit seamlessly into the Keek environment. It will allow users to live broadcast their inspired moments from their mobile phone in a spontaneous way, as well as clipping various "highlights" up to 36 seconds each throughout the live stream to archive and share on the Keek platform. Keek Live will be tightly integrated with Keek's own social graph of over 74 million members, as well as notifications being shared across other major social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Keek Live will also include additional features in real time with the live stream, and 24/7 channels for professional broadcasters and content creators.

"Both Gen Z and millennials are super comfortable with social sharing and broadcasting their talents. Keek is already known for the 'video selfie' and talent discovery. Live mobile video is a natural progression for Keek as a creative outlet for our users who seek to share their most authentic selves with the community," says Dimi Paun, Chief Technology Officer at Keek. "It is the new interaction that people will gravitate to and clearly the market is ripe for it. We are thrilled to include live video as an integral part of our platform as we ramp up to the launch of Keek X this fall."

"Our users want live video. It doesn't get more authentic than being able to stream live directly from your phone," says Alexandra Cameron, Chief Executive Officer at Keek. "This new offering will result in more spontaneous and exclusive content, further differentiating Keek as a social network and mobile app. Following last week's announcement at Facebook's F8 conference relating to Keek for Messenger, we are excited to continue to innovate our product with announcements such as Keek Live, and more in the future."

The live streaming feature will be available on iOS at launch, followed by roll out to the Android platform and other platforms thereafter. The public launch is planned in approximately 12 weeks. Starting today, users can sign up at https://www.keek.com/live and be selected as part of an exclusive private beta test group to get news and early access to review the new version of the app when it's available in beta.

Earlier this year, Keek Web 3.0 launched globally. The slick new modular design of the Keek web platform improves the ease of content discovery and creates a more immersive user experience. Keek will continue bringing redesign to devices, leading up to Keek X. The Keek X release, planned for this fall, will be a totally new architecture with features driving an innovation in the social video user experience.
