Twitvid Unveils Telly for Online Video -- A New Way to Tune InTelly Builds on Twitvid's Social Video Network Success to Change How We Collect, Discover and Share Video Today (June 13, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/13/12 -- Twitvid, the popular social video network, today announced its rebranding and unveiled a new way to tune into and share video online, called Telly. Telly is now available to everyone at www.telly.com.
Telly is a simple and fun way for people to collect, discover and share great video online. Telly brings together the web's best video content -- from Twitvid's own 10-million strong library to top video sites like CNN, ESPN and YouTube -- and makes smart social recommendations that fit your interests to create a steady, dynamic stream of personalized video. Telly also lets you share your own personal videos, and gives you the ability to collect video from around the web to watch and share with your Telly audience.
In doing so, Telly makes the fragmented world of online video as simple and enjoyable as it is to watch TV -- with a modern, social twist.
With Telly you can:
- Collect videos you love: Turn the vast web of online video into your personal Telly collection. Post and save any video from the web that you want with our Chrome extension or web bookmarklet to share with your Telly audience, or to simply watch later.
- Discover videos you will love: Telly shows you the best video for you from across the web by combining your personal tastes with what your friends find interesting. When you watch, you also help others discover through our real-time recommendation engine.
- Create and share videos others will love: Post your own creations to Telly online, share them with the Telly community, and easily repost them to other networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
Telly is brought to you by the team behind Twitvid, the popular social video network. For the past four years, tens of thousands of celebrities and tens of millions of people have been using Twitvid to post videos about their lives. Now the company is building on its own success in understanding how people watch and share, and is launching a new way to experience the best video online.
"Over the last four years, we've seen more than 10 million videos uploaded to Twitvid," said Mo Al Adham, Telly CEO and co-founder. "iPhones and Android devices have caused an exponential growth in the amount of video published on the web. How can users find great video to watch, and how do video creators, both big and small, reach relevant viewers when over 100 hours of video is uploaded every minute? This is a big problem that we understand well, and today Telly is taking the first step in reshaping how online video is viewed and distributed in today's world."
"We are here to take the greatest parts of what online video has become -- a vast world of great content -- and give you a new way of enjoying it that makes sense for our social and mobile reality," added Al Adham. "This launch is just the beginning, with some more exciting developments coming this summer."
Telly is a new and fun way for people to collect, discover and share great video online. Brought to you by the team behind Twitvid, the popular social video network, Telly makes smart social recommendations that fit your interests to create a steady, dynamic stream of personalized video. Telly is based in San Francisco and is backed by Azure Capital Partners and Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
