Social TV

TV as a social experience. 

Early in 2012 (revolutionary for the time and still not really being done) I decided to tackle the fact that the way we enjoy our entertainment had changed, but the TV experience itself hadn't. I wanted to change that for Fios using only existing technologies that they already used and leveraging people's existing social networks.

The idea can be described with simple questions:

What should I watch?
