Stevie, the online video platform that turns your Facebook and Twitter feeds into a personalized TV show, now lets you turn personal Facebook profiles or business pages into their own social TV channels. The new feature turns any profile or page into a lean back experience, featuring videos, images, status updates, comments and more.
Stevie CEO, Yael Givon, says in a press release, “Stevie is all about building a bridge between two of our most favorite pastimes – browsing the social web and watching TV. Stevie transforms Social into an experience where you can lean back, put your feet up and really enjoy the entertainment friends and pages have shared with you. With our new channels, viewers can experience the most personal TV programming ever, and we’ll be presenting this concept on stage as a finalist at MIPTV, in the MIPCube Lab competition in Cannes in April.”

In addition to these new personalized profile- or page-specific Stevie channels, Stevie has also added more than 450 new lean back social TV channels to the mix on a variety of topics from Rock Music to News, Art& Fashion, Sports, Jokesters, Hipsters and more. These new channels are all based on popular Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts. A full guide can be viewed at stevie.com/guide.
