What’s in the app:
Discover videos by simply pointing your phone at a television or computer screen to capture a few seconds of what you’re watching. The VideoSurf mobile application quickly identifies the episode and celebrities, provides more information about what was identified and suggests other videos to watch.
We currently index over 75 channels, including all major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX), other popular networks (ESPN, USA, TBS, TNT, CNN, MTV, VH1, etc.) and premium channels (HBO, Showtime and Starz!). As we are expanding our coverage, we do not index local programming yet.
Powerful, personalized video recommendations based on what you like, what you watch and the friends you follow. The more you watch and the more friends you follow, the more tailored your recommendations will become.
Find the videos you want to watch by typing your query into the search box and we’ll bring back the most relevant selections from our expansive collection of videos from the thousands of sources across the web we search. Search for your favorite TV shows, movie titles, celebrities, sports teams or topics to find great videos to watch right on your phone.
Your personalized News Feed for video. It’s a custom channel just for you built from your friend’s searches, viewing and commenting activity and recommendations.
You’ll find the most popular videos, TV shows, movie clips, sports highlights, news clips, viral videos and more in our Trends section. You’ll also see the users that are most popular to follow in the VideoSurf community.
