Showyou: Your Internet TV
By Remixation, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Showyou is as easy to use as your TV, only smarter and more personalized. It’s tuned to your tastes and interests, and available on all your devices.
You’re in charge of the channel lineup. There are 100,000s of channels to choose from, including:
— Popular channels from media companies, web video stars, and well known curators like NY Times, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Vice, Laughing Squid, The Verge, and Vevo;
— Channels for each of your favorite social networks so you can see videos your friends and people you follow share;
— And channels made by people who have made their own personal channel on Showyou with videos they’ve found and shared.
When you launch the app, we’ll pick just the right thing for you to watch from among all the channels you follow. Don’t like what’s on? It’s just a tap to change channels. And you can browse through customized guides and category guides to find something specific.
Sound to good to be true? Here’s what others have said over the years:

What's New in Version 5.1.1
- Beam Showyou to your TV with Chromecast!
- Personalized Category Channels (News, Entertainment, etc) based on channels you follow and activity by people you know
- Improved player for low-bandwidth
- Top channels in Channel Changer based on your usage; your favorites just 1-tap away
Not exactly a model for Chromecast support. The app becomes non-responsive after the end of the first video, then will not play anything until you crash out of the app.
There is also no way to disconnect the Chromecast, I had to launch one of the Google apps because ShowYou forgot to add the cast button outside of a streaming video.
