Hi everyone, vvatch.tv is a teaser for the forthcoming product, which we've been working on for the last 14 months. We're super excited by the attention our concept has already received on The Verge, The Next Web, Huffington Post, The Independent, and others. It's about time things were shaken up in the video delivery and curation space. We've been working on many interesting features that we've not seen out there yet, all which make watching and curating great videos fun, easy, collective and collaborative. This is just the start, we're super excited to be here! Happy to answer any questions. 🙌Thank you.

@marckremers How does the curation part work? I can't really find information on that on the site!

Cheers @samuelbeek. That's coming when we launch the full product. We beta tested channel creation with a few users and that's actually how the YouTube Haiku channel came about: a tester thought to scrape all the links from https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube..., which creates a very surreal, addictive experience we think. Again, we have some really neat ideas for how to make curating your channel really painless, slick, and integrated. There will be details in that that could only have been discovered through 14 months of iterating and user testing. Can't wait to reveal these. One way to describe vvatch could be 'Tumblr for TV channels'. And it's specifically 'TV' (think live, immediate, synchronous), not 'video', otherwise it'd be nothing more than a glorified playlist.

@marckremers Interesting, very curious about the future of vvatch. I really like the continues stream part of it. It fits well with the idea (I think Douglas Coupeland wrote about that) that people like to see something new every 2,5 minutes.

@samuelbeek crazy that you mention Douglas Coupland, an essay of his from the book "Shopping in Jail" was an indirect but big inspiration for us!

@marckremers Hey Marc, I was wondering if you had heard of churn.tv? Thoughts?
