Hey folks! So stoked to be launching SnapTV with my cofounder @akshaygoradia with the support of @gerardadams! SnapTV brings you the content you love in the place you want to see it — Snapchat. With over 10 billion video views a day, there’s no doubt that Snapchat has become the most influential platform among millennials. This is why we’re creating the first ever Snapchat media company. We are bringing together influencers, content creators, and the greater Snapchat community to collectively direct our show. We truly believe that SnapTV is the future of entertainment for millennials, and we’re here to make it happen. To our audience: start sending ideas on what you’d like to see on SnapTV — this is your show. Happy watching, Joe and the SnapTV team

@mojolaresca @akshaygoradia @gerardadams This is a really interesting concept and looking forward to checking it out. As long as the content keeps coming and is of a decent quality then I can see this doing well (obviously that is the challenge!) How are you looking at notifying people what shows are on and where? (maybe a bot?)

@bentossell — thanks, Ben! Agreed — challenge accepted :) Remember: We're letting the audience help us direct the show. So, if you have anything cool you'd like to see on SnapTV, (i.e. Sky Diving with DJ Khaled, Fire Side Chat over beer pong with Zach Galifianakis, or even "A Day in The Life in a Tesla feat. Elon Musk), then let me know! Our schedule will be displayed on our website (http://thesnap.tv/) and at the start every week on our Snapchat (@thesnap.tv). The bot is an awesome idea. We'll for sure build one and let you know when it's ready.

@mojolaresca @bentossell @thesnap A fireside chat over beer pong with Zach Galifianakis sounds like a dream. Please make that happen - so cool!

@mojolaresca @akshaygoradia @gerardadams If Snapchat becomes the future of TV, you can be TV manufacturers are going to start building, or at least allowing, 90° rotation. Portrait tvs.

+1 to the MTV cribs. That's a perfect show for SnapChat. Also an Olympics channel showing highlights, medal count updates, etc. would be great. I've been saying SnapChat is going to take on cable, and here it comes. Unless it's a show or sport that I'm truly a fan of, I already prefer to just get the highlights via SnapChat than watch the whole thing. Can't wait to see where this goes!

@joebelsterling thank joe! Love the idea of featuring sports highlights. We're actually working on something cool with the Yankees/Giants/Jets :) Let me know if you'd like us to do something cool (i.e. celeb competition, q&a on a field, or even a boozy brunch) with a specific athlete. Re: Snapchat > Cable — couldn't agree more.
