Let us see what ffwd has said about their new service:
…it’s the smarter and faster way to channel-surf the vast universe of web videos…
…Our product design philosophy is to make existing behaviors, like channel surfing, radically more powerful rather than proposing entirely new ways of doing things. ffwd is crowd-sourced, personalized, and social. It has unlimited content potential syndicating from any source including YouTube, Funny or Die, New York Times, Comedy Central, Hulu and CBS. Perhaps most importantly, it is "in the cloud," which makes it ready for TV that crosses platforms…
…Our goal is to create the only channel you’ll ever need…
I wish ffwd would make those mouthful definitions shorter, so that it would be much easier for people to understand their whole concept. The way I look at it, ffwd is more like a video RSS aggregator that allows you to create, subscribe, share your favorite videos and highlight them in your own personal video channel with the whole world.
Ffwd is pretty smart too. Once you have subscribed to couple of channels, ffwd will automatically find relevant videos that you may never have seen before. If this goes well, expect to see more interesting videos at ffwd!
Sounds great and I can see that ffwd is indeed great. I have signed up for ffwd a few hours ago and I’m checking it out right now. So far I can say that finding my way around ffwd is a bit of a nightmare. Oh boy!
