Rabble.TV has announced its version 2.0 relaunch, which includes a website redesign and a new Android app. The Rabble social network allows users to create and listen to audio streams relating to live sports or television events, with broadcasting, for now, reserved for users on the Web.
Rabble allows users to browse and listen to live or past broadcasts relating to sporting events (NFL, MLB, soccer, NCAA football and more) or television shows, as well as view upcoming, scheduled content. While listening to a live stream, users can interact with the broadcaster via message boards, and can up or down vote each comment, or reply directly to a post.
Users can follow others to create a personalized feed of their favorite streamers, which keeps track of upcoming broadcasts by these followed users.
While the iOS and Android apps allow users to listen to broadcasts while on the go, the iOS app will soon be updated to allow users to also broadcast from their iOS device.
In a statement, Rabble.TV co-founder, Ryan Tyrrell, commented:
We are absolutely thrilled to provide Rabblers across the world with a redesign jam-packed with features to make their broadcasting and listening experience both easier and more enjoyable. Since our launch in April, Rabble has streamed over 1,000 individual broadcasts culminating in more than 3,000 hours of audio content. This tremendous explosion of both broadcasts and listeners—combined with fantastic feedback from our community—has pushed us to create an even better environment for everyone to enjoy live television.
In addition to the general redesign, Rabble has received an improved search system and improved sharing features for both broadcasters and listeners to share content with their friends or followers. The new Rabble also includes real-time game data for sports events, with this feature coming soon to Rabble on mobile.
