Step 1: Choose Your Hardware

Split-Flap TV is a new communication and digital signage solution that works with any standard television.

Add Split-Flap TV to Existing or New Equipment

You can bring your own television (Android, Android TV, or Google TV) or connect an Android TV stick (such as a Google Chromecast with Google Play Store) directly to the HDMI port of any television.

Next to the Android platform, you can also use the Apple platform and show your messages on your iPhone or iPad, or stream it to your television.

Then you purchase a subscription to manage your screen messaging. This option will work anywhere in the world with electricity and internet access.
