Shelby .TV networks let you program your own channels of video to broadcast to the world. In the past, networks like NBC and CBS picked content for the masses to watch. Now, it's your turn. Each channel (we call them "Rolls") is a collection of videos from anywhere on the Internet. It can be an expression of your tastes, interests, opinions, or marketing for your company.
We’ve designed the .TV experience from the ground up for web and mobile. Shelby gives you the tools to create, then gets out of the way to let the content speak for itself.
On Twitter you tweet, on Shelby you roll.
You curate video by rolling it. This adds it to one of the Rolls in your network. You can re-roll video from Rolls you follow within Shelby. Or you can roll video from any webpage with our tools (a Chrome Extension and bookmarklet).
Rolling video is more powerful when you hook up Twitter and Facebook. Shelby shows you the video your friends are sharing (did you know that most discovery comes from loose connections within your networks?). You take it from there.
You can also share to Twitter and Facebook when you roll a video. This is a great way to build an audience for your .TV network.
We think big-box TVs and even YouTube have become too complicated. When it takes a lot of work to watch video, it's not enjoyable. We won’t stand for that. So we’re working on bringing Shelby to more devices.
You can search YouTube, Vimeo and more without killing the video you’re watching. By following creative and original Rolls, you'll discover great video before it already has a million views. Plus, it’s just two clicks to roll a video you see in your everyday browsing.
They get continuous, elegant playback like television. Not a pile of webpages that interrupt the experience.
Focus. There are no distractions next to your content, so your audience can enjoy and focus.
You’re more than a YouTube channel. So you should stand out from the crowd and build an audience that is uniquely yours.
With Shelby you can curate videos you didn't upload. And you can use videos from lots of different places (like YouTube, Vimeo, Hulu, DailyMotion, CollegeHumor, and more).
Our widget will automatically detect videos on your blog and add a link to your .TV network. See an example from Fred Wilson: http://avc.com
Some partners have also chosen to embed the full Shelby playback experience. Either way, email us and we’ll make it happen.
We can help you bring all that content into your own beautiful Shelby .TV network. Email us if you’re interested.
Custom domains are great. They allow you to build a brand that's all your own.
Whether it's your name, your band's name, a movie, or a company, we can help you create a beautiful page at your custom domain. Since they’re still in beta, email us to get it setup.
Your .TV network represents you. We’ll make sure your audience can relax and enjoy it on the couch as easily as they can at their desk. It will just work when building is complete.
