I’m a TV junkie who can’t get enough of my favorite shows – “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” After watching an episode, I love to geek out on Tumblr with other fans over plot twists, costumes and my favorite ships.
So, I’m incredibly excited today to announce the launch of Yahoo View, a brand new community TV-watching site. We are partnering with Hulu to offer thousands of free full-length episodes of premium TV shows, anime and Korean drama, as well as movies and TV clips. We’ve got everything from “Scandal" to “Empire” to “One Punch Man” to “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” You can also go beyond the episode with behind-the-scenes extras, recaps, and the best GIFs, photos and edits from the Tumblr fandom community.
We’ve seen awesome things happen when you add community and content together (think of the passionate communities on Yahoo Sports, Polyvore and Tumblr to name a few) and are excited to be taking this first step towards creating a powerful community TV-watching experience. Today’s launch is only scratching the surface of what’s possible, and we are looking forward to rolling out more content and community-related updates soon!
view.yahoo.com is immediately available in the U.S. today. Mobile web and mobile apps will be coming soon.
