Crowd-sourced TV is now just a click away, thanks to the efforts of Redux co-founders David McIntosh, Max Crane, Chris Pennello and their team. A welcome change from traditional cable television providers like Comcast who limit consumer choices and forces bland, boring content down your cable line, Redux enables a discovery layer on top of video, photo and rich media content that could be consumed via numerous platforms.
Discovery takes the form of the social graph and recommendations. In other words, Redux is a personalized channel for you that’s curated and programmed by your friends and people that share your taste.
There is much more to it than this, and that’s why David McIntosh and his team are descending onto the stage to give us a demo of Redux at the Dec 15th SF New Tech event.
Along with their demo of the Redux platform, they will also be showing off “Redux Discover” for Google TV – a fun and beautiful way to discover the videos that your friends and relevant tastemakers are watching, all in an effortless lean-back experience. Although this feature is not publicly available yet, Redux has promised to give away private invites for SF New Tech attendees, so don’t miss it if you want one!
Plus free custom RVCA Redux T-shirts for a chosen few!
Redux is based in Berkeley California. The company has raised venture capital from Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Alsop-Louie Partners.
