    We're making it easier to dive into shows.

    Seasons now have their own pages in the app! It'll now be easier to tell when you're on a season page or a show.

    We also added a floating toolbar to the bottom every episode and season page, allowing you to quickly jump to the previous or next one.

  • Website refresh

    The new website header, reading "TV is better with friends".

    When people asked us what Marathon was, we realized we didn't have a place to direct people for answers.

    Today, we're re-introducing the Marathon homepage with a fresh coat of paint! From our new site, you can now:

    • quickly access download links
    • read up on frequently asked questions
    • or check out the latest changes to the app.

    And of course, the web app is always available at /feed.

    • Read notifications no longer are dimmed. Rather, unread notifications have a green dot next to them.

    • You no longer need to manually mark notifications as read — they will do so automatically.

  • One Year 💚

    A screenshot of Marathon for web with the caption "Welcome to the web."

    One year ago today, we launched Marathon to the world on iOS! In the year since, we've expanded to Android and seen over 7,000 new users join us for their television watching journey. Today, we're excited to deliver on folks' biggest request: Marathon for web. 💚

    You can now access Marathon on your biggest screen and have it sync to your phone. No matter where you're watching TV or who you're discussing with, you'll always have Marathon available.

    I wanted to take this time to thank everyone who has joined us along for this journey. One year is a long time, and we couldn't do it without your support. We read every piece of feedback you send in and are excited to deliver on the things you want. Expanding to web is just the first step — we've got big plans in store!

    We are a small team of one (hello! 👋) building Marathon in the after hours. If you'd like to support us, please donate to our Tip Jar or contact me at [email protected] for a larger investment.

    Until the next time, keep calm and Marathon on!
