TV has room for you and two guests on screen, the ability to pre-schedule your shows in advance and announce them to your Facebook contacts, and display their comments on screen, in larger display than you see in Facebook, as they come in.
You need to be in front of a computer to host your show.—Smiletime: You can bring in three guests, plus the host, and show off photos, GIFs, trending tweets, along with comments, while you do your show.
(Belive says it will roll out inserting photos during the show soon.) A new app for Apple devices, just out this week, let's you broadcast from the i Phone—or you could do it the old way, via your computer.
Broadcasting via computer has a big advantage—your image won't be shaky, because you're probably not holding onto the laptop or desktop.
Windows Live Messenger (formerly MSN Messenger) is a discontinued instant messaging client developed by Microsoft for Windows, Xbox 360, Black Berry OS, i OS, Java ME, S60 on Symbian OS 9.x, and Zune HD.
It connected to the Microsoft Messenger service while also having compatibility with Yahoo! The client was first released as MSN Messenger on July 22, 1999, and was marketed under the MSN branding until 2005 when it was rebranded under Windows Live and has since been officially known by its present name, although its previous name was still used colloquially by most of its users.
With an online talk show, “everybody is one click away from taking part,” says Alex Kruglov, the former Hulu exec who founded Smiletime as a way for viewers to discuss their favorite TV shows online.
As Facebook began its push to go live, Kruglov repositioned Smiletime to embrace live, where “reinventing the talk show,” made sense for programming.
