Yidio’s goal is to provide the best platform to watch TV and movies online. With this launch, we have developed many new features to enhance discovery of new entertainment, create real-time conversations regarding TV shows or movies, and increase organization throughout the site.

With Yidio now reaching 4 million unique visitors and 32 million pageviews each month, we want to thank our loyal users who continue continue to drive adoption of our easy-to-use episode guide that has made Yidio one of the top destinations to watch TV online.   With the v3 launch, we hope to make the Yidio experience even better.
