Want to Be a Part of XDA TV?
Our XDA TV side project has grown quite a lot in the last 10 months. We’ve used it to feature the best developments that are happening on XDA, to interview important members of our industry, to review apps, to recap the news of the last week, and more. It’s helped to bring a new dimension to this great site. And now we want to grow it even more!
We’re looking for new XDA TV personalities that can talk about development, interview developers, or just do anything on camera that is development-related. If you’re interested, simply send a link to pilot video (use YouTube to host) to xdatv(at)xda-developers.com no later than 5 December. Good luck!
