Keeping with its recent trend of adding more content and features to Google TV, Google today highlighted the fact that the Revision3 app for Android is now available for Google TV. Rob DeMilo, Revision3’s CTO, shared the app’s features in a blog post at the Google TV blog. From the blog:
Revision3 has a wide selection of great shows to choose from. Watch reviews on the latest apps, games, and movies, or enjoy hilarious interviews and talk shows with some pretty awesome personalities. If you’re not sure what to watch, check out Best of Revision3 for a collection of all the best clips in one place. Watch Revision3 in your living room with your Google TV, or if you’re on the go, you can watch from your mobile phone or tablet.
The Revision3 app is available for free in the Google Play store. Users can also download the app for Android phones and tablets. The app features dozens of Revision3 shows such as The Totally Rad Show, Tekzilla, Film State, and Epic Meal Time. Demilo describes two of the channel’s more popular shows in his blog post:
If you want to be aware of all the social happenings in the world including movies and reviews, then check out Revision3 shows like The Totally Rad Show or Breakin’ It Down. In The Totally Rad Show, learn factoids like how there’s an alien in every episode of South Park, where Alex Albrecht, Dan Trachtenberg, and Jeff Cannata give it to you straight with a dose of sarcasm and foolish humor. In Breakin’ It Down, Catherine Reitman brings you move reviews with a bite. Find out what she really thinks of Peeta’s casting in The Hunger Games or if the action scenes lived up to their previews in Wrath of the Titans.
Revision3 has been around and broadcasting content created for the web for years now. Diggnation, one of the most popular video podcasts of the previous decade, was launched on Revision3. Most of the shows on the channel share a tech-savvy, geeky mentality, and though I love that about it, I do wonder if the channel will ever break out of that mold and really challenge old, non-internet-based networks for the growing “mainstream” internet population. What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.
