Protein TV is back. Hailed as "Europe's first online TV channel" when it launched in February 1998, it blazed a trail for other companies to follow, both in technology and programming.â€¨
2013 sees the rebirth of Protein TV at Hackney House Austin during SXSW, as a fully integrated online, mobile and smart TV service. Every month, Protein TV will showcase a highly curated programme of the very best video content from the worlds of Art, Design, Music, Film, Fashion, Food and Travel. As part of the launch, Protein TV will feature exclusives from Dezeen, Channel 4’s Random Acts and Resident Advisor, with new commissioned Protein Films and many more partners to be announced over the coming months. The core concept hasn’t changed, only this time we’re not running on 56k dial-up modems.
The official (re)launch of Protein TV will be at SXSW as part of Hackney House Austin, a 3,000+ sq ft space showcasing 25 of the finest Shoreditch businesses, as well as being a welcome hangout, complete with free WIFI, coffee, meeting spaces and power chargers. We will be hosting a Protein Forum on “The Future of TV”, on Saturday 9th March from 4pm-5pm, with Blake Whitman from Vimeo, Costas Syrmos from Nokia Films, Fernando Gutierrez De Jesus from ITV NEW and hosted by Protein’s Founder and CEO William Rowe.
We’ll also have a Protein TV stand specially designed by Not Tom for the event, where they will debut their forthcoming Kickstarter funded furniture project ‘Strung’.
We’re very excited to share Protein TV with you. And we hope you can make it to Hackney House Austin, where the extensive, 4-day programme of events will confirm Hackney House Austin as the key destination for showcasing Hackney’s best new ideas and an open opportunity for guests to meet Hackney’s top creative and digital companies including:
