What is XDA TV?
The forums are the core of XDA, and have been for a decade now. Brilliant developers root, hack, and modify software and then share their work with the community so that we can all benefit, and all of this magic happens on the forums. Almost a year ago, we added a new dimension to XDA through XDA TV. But what is XDA TV? What’s our goal with it?
Our goal for XDA TV is to bring to life what we do in the forums and to provide a different way to experience what goes on here, whether that means hearing Azrienoch opine about how the CarrierIQ saga is redefining what security means on our devices, getting an interesting new app recommendation from SassiBob, watching Sam recap the news of the week and talk about the latest devices to get rooted, or seeing Shen show you new ways to experience your Android phone. XDA TV extracts some of the culture, excitement, and interest from the work done in the forums, and brings it to our members in an interactive and entertaining way. That’s our aim anyhow, and we hope you’ve been enjoying it!
