First I want to apologize for not having done the video updates until now. It was my intent to update every day, but we have no wi-fi at the Air Bnb rental.

For those who don’t know, I’m currently in Los Angeles, CA meeting with potential investors, clients and other web TV creators about Martell TV. I’m also shooting a documentary about the journey, because I want to highlight the challenges startups in the internet television space face that are unique from those in the more traditional TV and film industry.


Anyway here are several video updates about the trip so far:

I am really excited to show everyone the following video. My friend Petros (star of My Life As A Video Game) loaded our app on his Sony Smart TV and it ran PERFECTLY! It seems like a small thing, but if you knew all the challenges we’ve faced getting to this point you would understand why this is such a magical moment for me. We’re so close to making the dream of a better web TV experience a reality!

Also, I really want to thank everyone who has donated to make this trip possible; I could not be out here without your generous support!
