We just shipped a new thing at YAMU. It’s called YAMU.tv. As the name implies, it’s a place to watch video. Basically, it’s a page that will always have something fresh to watch, everyday, all from a Sri Lankan perspective.
Design wise, YAMU.tv is a shameless Devour clone. Where we’re putting our effort is into curating and creating the content.
Honestly, if you search YouTube most videos about Sri Lanka are from foreigners with GoPros. We don’t produce much of our own stuff. But we will, and there’s already a lot of good stuff out there. Keep an eye on channels like WTF, TechTrack, Odyssey, and iFilm Sri Lanka.
Since we’re just embedding stuff, we can also highlight amazing international content like Romesh Ranganathan’s Asian Provocateur. That being a full BBC show released online.
Anyways, YAMU.tv’s goal is to be the online TV station for Sri Lanka – a place that collects all this stuff, helps produce it where needed, and basically gives you fresh stuff to watch, every day. So keep an eye on it. That’s where I’m working these days.
