What is Playback?

What is Playback?

Playback is a free app that allows communities to stream live sports together. We like to think of it as your digital sports bar.

How does it work?

Each community on Playback has their own room to watch together and chat. Rooms can stream live TV together, including live sports broadcasts, in perfect sync. People can talk in the room using chat, mics and cameras. Moderators can invite people to speak and moderate the conversation.

How do I get access to view streams on Playback?

You will need to connect a TV provider(s) that includes coverage for the program that's being streamed in your room. See 📺TV Authentication on Playback.

Is there a Playback mobile app?

We currently have an iOS beta app which you can download here.

Android is coming soon!

Does Playback have a partner program to support content creators?

You will also get access to special community programs and the opportunity to connect with our other creator partners.
