Here’s how it works:

  • When selecting an episode from a desired TV show, or while watching the episode, users can view a store with all products found in that episode or within that frame.
  • Users can then filter by their favorite characters and shop comparables for each product at different price points.
  • Diddo also offers the ability to natively purchase the product, or add to cart, without having to leave the streaming platform.
  • Users can place the order directly from their streaming platform and get right back to watching (or more shopping!)
