New BWW TV Player!

We've got about 57 active things we've been cooking up in the 'BroadwayWorld Labs' over the last few months that I'm *very* excited to start sharing over the next weeks. 

Leading off today, you'll notice that we launched a new BroadwayWorld TV player with a few spiffy new features addressing items on OUR wish list and from YOUR requests.

First of all, the player now loads twice as fast (and even faster than that on mobile devices!).

Second, we're beta-testing a 'Skip Ads' button that will pop-up 5 seconds in, if you just can't wait to get to the video in question.

And, lastly (and most exciting to me!), we've added AirPlay functionality right into the player. If you've got an Apple TV (of any generation), you can now click 1 button and watch us on the big screen. Check out BWW TV videos all over the site, or right here

Of course if you have the newest Apple TV (4), I hope that you've already got our snazzy Apple TV App! (Details on that here).

bio
The 2001 Syracuse University graduate (School of Information Studies) is also the owner of Wisdom Digital Media, an award-winning leading design company for entertainment and technology web sites. In his previous life, he held an executive position for the world's leading publisher of technology magazines, web sites and conferences and, as a result, was named among the "Top thirty magazine industry executives under the age of 30" by FOLIO Magazine.

Robert Diamond founded BroadwayWorld.com in 2003, which has now become the largest theatre web site in the world. He also serves as the site's Editor-in-Chief, covering Broadway and beyond, with specific local coverage for 100 cities in the United States, 35 countries worldwide and 15 other related areas of entertainment - including dance, opera, fashion, concerts, comedy, films, television and more. In May of 2014, the site was awarded an Award for Excellence in Theatre Arts Education by the prestigious Theatre Museum.

Diamond got his start in the entertainment field, accidentally, when he created the 'official web site' (while in college) for Michael Crawford, the popular actor and original Tony and Olivier Award-winning star of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. (He still blames Crawford - and credits him - for anything that goes particularly right or wrong during an average day.)

As a respected member of the Broadway and theatre community, Diamond also served as Lead Producer for a series of sold-out shows using the BroadwayWorld.com 'brand' for a set of 'Standing Ovations' concerts, which also branched out into titles that included Holiday Shows and even more specific concerts like 'From Stage to Screen and Back Again' in tandem with publishers and movie studios. All proceeds were in turn donated to Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS, the industry's leader in aid for performers in need.

Robert lives in Manhattan with his wife and two dogs, growing the business and getting little sleep. In addition, you can usually find him in a theatre many nights a week. Robert's very popular blog, 'The Broadway Pulse' appears daily on BroadwayWorld.com and he also wrote weekly about theatre for the USA Network's Character Approved blog.

In December of 2014, Diamond was one of 5 Syracuse University Alumni, all having achieved success in the world of start-ups, business growth and venture capital, participating on a panel addressing young alumni who are currently pursuing their dreams of running their own business and experiencing the day to day challenges of a startup. It is part of the university's new Student Accelerator Program, for which Rob was recommended by Syracuse University's i-School.

In late 2012, Wisdom Digital Media announced the official spinoff and launch of 10 new entertainment web sites including BWWMoviesWorld.com, BWWTVWorld.com, BWWFashionWorld.com, BWWBooksWorld.com, BWWMusicWorld.com, BWWArtWorld.com, BWWComedyWorld.com, BWWDanceWorld.com, BWWClassicalWorld.com and BWWOperaWorld.com.

In 2013 BWWFitnessWorld.com and BWWTravelWorld.com launched as well, and in July of 2013, BWWHub.com launched as a portal to the complete family of entertainment and lifestyle offerings. The site's expansion was featured in a Crain's New York Business profile as well.

In 2014, BroadwayWorld.com returned to the concert stage, with a series of benefit concerts featuring Broadway's brightest stars and the site continued its growth in 2015 adding exclusive features, an industry-first Apple TV app, video content & more.
