We all know the feeling of not being able to find something to watch when you finally have the chance to sit down and decompress. Most people will get sucked into scrolling endlessly through Netflix recommendations or will simply settle on something subpar. Juneteenth is next week and a new black owned business is revolutionizing this idea.

Gatsby Frimpong is the Founder and CEO of Gatsby TV, the tech company that’s created an app offering a fun new way to discover television shows and movies. The platform brings all your streaming services into one place where they can be easily searched with detailed info including ratings from IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a grading system. The Gatsby TV app is also seamlessly bridging the gap between our screens and social lives.  

Launched just a few months ago, the application lets you see what users you follow have watched recently and allows you to recommend shows or movies to friends. It’s being hailed as a much more trusted source for suggestions of what could be your next favorite film or bingeable TV  series. This takes those offline conversations we have with each other about what we’re watching and brings them together for you on any device.

Gatsby’s extensive experience before their startup includes jobs at Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Cisco. If you would like to learn more visit:
