Showyou 5 & the Expanding Showyou Platform

We’ve just released the latest version of Showyou for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Showyou 5.0.


It’s the simplest and best version of Showyou we’ve made. Get it here now.

We got started over two and a half years ago with our first version of Showyou for the iPad and iPhone, but our service has evolved into something much more than an app. It’s now an end-to-end video platform — indeed, one of the biggest on the Internet, with over 120 million videos indexed, organized into millions of channels made by our users organized by taste and interest using billions of social signals from our users and their friends.

Over the past six months we’ve launched:

Showyou for Android phones

– The Showyou Channel Platform

Showyou for Android Tablets

Showyou for the web, for both desktop and mobile users

– And an experimental Mac desktop app

We’ve tried to make a service that makes it as easy to watch the best videos on the Internet as it is to turn on your TV, available anytime and on any device. We stayed focused on that goal in 2013, people seem to be tuning in:


In November, people watched over 11.4 million minutes of video on Showyou: on our iOS and Android apps, and on the web. Almost triple the minutes watched in October. December isn’t over yet, but looks like we are on pace to equal or exceed November.

We recognize this is a drop in the bucket compared to the billions of minutes people spend on YouTube every month. But as we add more platforms, more great programming, and as more people tune in, there is no reason it won’t grow to 100s millions of minutes a month, and then billions. Onwards.
