AtticTV is considered the "personal MTV on the Web." Users can log onto the site and will be provided with a stream of music videos. The videos are from YouTube, but seem to be optimized to a degree since they are not as distorted as much of the content on YouTube seems to be. Music is categorized by music types such as "Top Tracks," "Pop" and "Female Vocalists." After each video, users will be provided a link to a place where they can download the track or visit the band's webpage. Music will continue to stream through the app for as long as a user remains on their page. Users can also comment or flag videos. If they find a band that they like they can enjoy more tracks by that artist by clicking on a button. AtticTV makes exploring new music and enjoying music videos easy.
As of May 2012, AtticTV was still in its Beta. The app is supported by a group of three young people names Johnson Goh (CEO & designer), Grey Ang (Developer) and Man Choy (Developer).
AtticTv is a music -VIDEO- streaming application. While many apps out there stream music, none really do the music videos. All of the videos on AtticTV look great- as opposed to many YouTube "channels" that list an individual's favorites. Users can also listen to music based on a genre and the music streams continuously. Users can also browse through the videos until they find some they like as well.
AtticTV looks young and hip and it's really easy to use. Users don't even need to register for it to start listening to music. However if they want to use some of the more advanced features like saving an artist or video they'll want to login and create an account. There is a banner ad at the bottom of the music video, however this isn't too distracting. There were no bugs and all of the videos loaded very quickly and looked great.
Users can register for AtticTV by linking their Facebook or their Twitter account to the app.
AtticTV is a free service and it is supported by advertising revenue and open to investments.
AtticTV Is a great app to play in the background while working on a computer. When users want, they can click on the app's window to enjoy a music video. It's also something that people could sit back and watch and enjoy the visual stimulation of many of these artistic and fantastic music videos. Since MTV doesn't play music videos as much anymore- this is a great new place to fill that void.
