Break


Caavo

At Caavo, we want to break free from the clutter of remotes to create one community—one place where everyone can discover, watch and share something great.

When we first started Caavo in 2015, we knew there was a tremendous opportunity to bridge entertainment platforms. We took the first step to unify devices and apps with one remote control. The more we started synthesizing disparate media technologies, the more we realized how much bigger a world of unified entertainment could become.

We have a universe of choices when it comes to what we watch, but we've become disconnected in the ways we search, experience and enjoy content. As our world of content options grew, so too did the number of devices. Caavo is committed to building a community where you can watch something together on a big screen TV that everyone in the family can use. We hope you’ll join us in creating one place, one community where we can all kick back, relax, and enjoy.
