Cool! Love seeing new takes on the lean-back concept! (e.g., http://reddit.tv)

@alexisohanian Pluto.tv, specifically the standup comedy channel, has been my go-to, lean-back destination (cc @jchoi526).

@alexisohanian @jchoi526 @rrhoover yeah a ton of people have done this... i think youtube did youtube.tv 6-7 years ago?

@alexisohanian @jchoi526 @myoung since all the cool kids are doing it, I just registered producthunt.tv. 😄

@alexisohanian Is Reddit TV a youtube preset playlist?

@jchoi526 @rrhoover Ooo, that looks good! I wonder what is going to win. Admittedly, we launched reddit.tv back in early 2009 and it's in need of some more love after the last 6yrs.

i'll let @thistoby jump in and talk about it because he built digg.tv... we've had a lot of people ask for a full screen digg video/tv mode so they can watch digg videos off their laptop/ipad/etc hooked up to their tv. the other thing we added is browsing by channel/topic (our editors hand-tag 20-50 videos/day) or by saved videos. plenty more to do, this is just a prototype...including adding air play to our ios app. we also have a prototype where the mobile site becomes the remote for another device hooked up to the tv. would love to hear feedback if people get a chance to try it out!

@thistoby @myoung Looks pretty clean! Shot a tweet over.

Thanks, @alexisohanian! While we're definitely trying for a very simple, clean, easy, etc., UI, the special sauce here, if special sauce there be, is the fact that the videos are editorial selected, and can be watched by channel -- topics or personally saved videos. I like picking a topic like Architecture, Cities, Food, Comics, and then staying in that flow for a bit. Details about the feature set & design thinking here: https://digg.com/2015/introducin...

@mcandrew I love it! I've long been impressed by how your editorial team has the time to find all that great content. Share your secret with the rest of us!

Thanks for the comments guys - yeah I've been liking both pluto.tv and reddit.tv, and there are some great YouTube playlists out there too. When you think of how many channels there are on TV, often filled with a lot of mediocre programming... there is also so much great digital-first content out on the Internet, we need more channels for that here. Let's keep pushing it out there.
