Vancouver’s Hitcase teams up with Discovery Channel for Shark Week livestream


Discovery Channel and Hitcase, a Vancouver-based action iPhone case, are teaming up for a Shark Week livestream.

The livestream will take place off the coast of Florida in a known shark habitat and is set to feature shark ecologist and filmmaker Rob Stewart, the director, swimming around, under water, with, you guessed it, sharks.

Stewart will reportedly stream his dive through multiple social media platforms including Facebook Live and Twitter’s Periscope.

The specific case used for the Livestream is the Hitcase Pro+, a waterproof iPhone case that’s built to allow the smartphone to be used in the same way as action cameras like the Go Pro. The company plans to also sell a limited edition Shark Week branded Hitcase Pro+.

The live stream is set to go down on June 30th at 11am Eastern.
