We know you don’t know us too well (yet). And we actually don’t like to talk too much about ourselves. Why? Because we want to focus on you. We believe you love to be entertained. And you love to be entertained on your terms, right? You want to watch whatever you choose, whenever and wherever you are. You sometimes want to watch 2, 3, 4 episodes in a row, sometimes even a whole season at once. Sometimes on your phone, your laptop, your game console, your TV, or sometimes you might want to watch on all of them at once. Sipping coffee in the morning, running on the treadmill, lying on the couch. Alone, with friends, with loved ones, with your pets. It’s 2019, and entertainment comes on your terms!
We’re here to address this new era of entertainment. We start by listening to you. Why? Because we want to get to know you, your passion, your context to build the best conceivable entertainment experience we can invent. And the thing is, we want to do it together with you. And we’re honest, we don’t exactly know how the finale will turn out. We don’t know if there’s a lot of twists and jump scares along the way.
So, as much as we could keep adding feature after feature prior to launch, we’ve decided to bring out the first version of Joyn — you can think of it as a pilot episode — starting today. In this episode, we need to start to get to know the product. Joyn starts on iOS and Android devices (including FireTV), and also works in a standard browser on your computer. It’s a simple, clean, elegant video watching experience, one that we hope you’ll find easy and enjoyable to use. All the content you’ll find on Joyn is hand-selected by our expert team of curators, who work to help deliver you great things to watch.
We’re starting simple — local live television combined with a steadily increasing library of instantly streamable shows, series, and movies (scratch that, movies are coming soon). And that, by the way, is how far we want to take this relationship — we’re going to be exceptionally candid about what we do, and about what we don’t do, and what’s coming soon, and what ideas we *might* have, including the ones we end up not even pursuing. We fundamentally believe that our success is rooted in this journey together, and we want to shape the ultimate experience for German audiences by engaging with you, listening and reflecting back what we’ve heard.
Our priority at first is to get Joyn out into the wild, and start getting your feedback. Our team has a huge list of ideas for features and functions to make TV watching even more amazing than it is today. And we look forward to engaging with you in our community, to help us prioritize what you want the most. We plan to update the Joyn experience frequently, and we hope to be fast learners.
Welcome to Joyn, we hope you want to be a part of something different. Something local, something special. Come check it out here.
