Digg Rolls Out Digg TV, Curated Playlists for Lean-Back Viewing
Digg Video, a digital video platform (from publisher Digg) that’s like YouTube but more carefully curated, now has a linear viewing counterpart in Digg TV.
The new feature means that whenever you watch a video on Digg, you can click “TV Mode” to choose an entire related playlist to lean back and watch without having to click from one disappointing web video the next. Curated playlists cover topics like “lust,” “warfare,” “aviation,” and “LGBT,” or you can create your own playlist from your saved videos on the platform.
Digg TV is currently in beta. According to Digg’s blog, the company’s using this time to figure out whether or not to add certain features to TV Mode, such as the ability to use your phone as the remote control, save videos from elsewhere on the internet to watch on Digg TV, and support video players other than YouTube and Vimeo (the only two it supports right now).
Digg is also deciding whether Digg TV will integrate with certain streaming devices, from Apple TV and Chromecast to various other set-top boxes. For now, you can just watch Digg TV autoplay online.Tags: apple tv, Chromecast, digg, digg tv, digg video, Playlists, Vimeo, youtube
