LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--America’s Funniest Home Videos launched its first app, the AFV App for iPhone® and iPod touch® today, making it possible for fans to watch their favorite videos anytime, anywhere, as well as instantly upload their own submissions to the show.
"This is a glorious day! With the new AFV App for iPhone and iPod touch our dream of global slapstick domination is now closer to reality," said Host Tom Bergeron.
The AFV App offers 14 video channels available, from dogs, cats, sports and celebrations to babies, teens, practical jokes, mishaps and fan favorites. Fans will be able to interact with the show’s content and create their own playlist so favorites can be accessed easily and shared on Facebook and Twitter directly from their iPhone or iPod touch. iPhone and iPod touch users can videotape from any location and instantly submit it to the show from anywhere.
“Who could have imagined when we went on the air in 1989 that we would be getting videos through an iPhone or iPod touch?” says Vin Di Bona, creator and executive producer of AFV. The longest-running primetime entertainment show on ABC, AFV has embraced new technology over its 22 year run, having originally received home video submissions on the now little-used VHS format, followed by DVDs and computer uploads.
The AFV App is now available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
The AFV App was designed by Teleca.
