About 8 TV
8 TV, found online at IAm8.TV, is a new company, website, and mobile application that says the new viewing experience they provide for their members is considered a “revolution in reality television.”
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the creation of the internet, digital streaming, and mobile technology have created the perfect circumstances in which to create a brand new version of the traditional reality television people have come to love.
The goal of 8 TV is provide people with a way to closely follow the lives and passions of people like you or people who do and know the things that you enjoy or find interesting. So far, prospective stars of this app included a retired model who is willing to speak all about the industry, a television star who will show behind-the-scenes footage, styles mavens with ideas about the newest trends, and much more.
Every episode is designed to provide viewers with “immersive content,” which lets you interact with the stars of the show, find new inspiration, and discover new products, places, and ideas.
In fact, 8 TV allows their stars to create interactive videos that feature the products they love by scanning a product from a list provided by the channel itself. This scan will be embedded into the video, and this link will allow viewers to purchase products directly from the video itself.
At this time, it appears that 8 TV will be provides as an iOS application, suitable for iPhones, iPads, and Apple televisions. No word at this time if or when they will expand their offerings to Android or other platforms.
The 8 TV mobile and web app appear to still be in their pre-launch mode at this time, gathering stars and creating the base of their content. They will allow people to put their names on a waiting list to be notified when the channel has launched officially so that they can subscribe and become a member at that time. Until then, there is not much information available about what this product may cost subscribers, either in monthly fees or in fees paid to download the app.
Since this website does not provide any information regarding how members will pay for their 8 TV membership, there is also no available information on a Refund or Cancellation Policy either.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by connecting with them through their social media networks.
Since this product has not yet officially been launched, there is almost no information available on how people feel about it, or what is expected of it. That being said, it certainly seems as though a major aspect of this company will be its emphasis on letting people sell products directly through their videos; the content provided through the videos may be secondary to the opportunity to sell products, though until 8 TV actually launches, it will be impossible to tell.
Competitors and Alternatives?
It seems as though this company is fairly similar to what YouTube.com offers people, with the ability to design their own “channel” for their specific content, to which people can subscribe. These videos are often used to sell products and services as well, depending on the content.
