Your Family Entertainment AG: Launch of family app RiC+ in the third quarter of 2021 in cooperation with BiDa Group

Vienna/Munich, 28 June 2021: YFE's new app RiC+, a continuation of the popular TV channel RiC TV, will be available in the Apple Store as well as the Google Play Store.

Dr. Stefan Piëch, CEO of Your Family Entertainment AG, and Eden Biniaurishvili, founder of SocialBiDa, met during the filming of the successful start-up show "2 Minuten 2 Millionen" aired by the Austrian private TV station PULS 4. During the show, Eden Biniaurishvili won a ticket for the coveted MIT Innovation Leadership Bootcamp from Stefan Piëch. After several selection processes, Eden's team finally achieved first place.

The development of the family app RiC+ presents an excellent opportunity to combine the two companies' know-how: While the agency SocialBiDa contributes its expertise in the field of app development and entrepreneurial spirit, Your Family Entertainment AG provides its content and many years of knowledge in the field of children's and family entertainment.

For almost 10 years, the family channel RiC TV has been delighting children and families in German-speaking countries. Around 33 million households receive RiC TV in the GAS region. Furthermore, it can be accessed via Cable & Satellite, IPTV, live streaming, YouTube, and mobile TV. Austria's largest private media company ProSiebenSat.1 PULS 4 markets the channels exclusively in Austria and is also looking forward to the expansion of the linear offering.

The entertaining, educational, and non-violent shows that already helped RiC TV achieve great popularity are at the core of RiC+ as well. Additionally, the application integrates exciting educational games and other edutainment content. This creates a unique environment guaranteed to be suitable for children and thus entirely in line with parents' wishes. To continuously improve the user experience, Your Family Entertainment AG will enter into various co-operations with platform partners in the future. The launch of RiC+ will take place in September 2021, with the app being available for download in the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.

Eden Biniaurishvili and Danell Daral of SocialBiDa: "We are excited to work with Dr. Stefan Piëch and Your Family Entertainment AG to develop a product that gives children and parents a safe environment to watch educational and non-violent content."

Stefan Piëch, CEO of Your Family Entertainment AG: "Smartphones and apps are now an integral part of everyday life for most families. Just as the channel RiC TV distributes engaging entertainment under the motto "Immer RiChtig Cool", RiC+ will now expand the offering to include gaming and VoD in a family-friendly way."
