  • Feedback Week 1

    A list of three options: pause watching, stop watching, and remove series. The stop watching option is highlighted, as it is the star feature of this feedback week.

    Marathon prides itself on providing transparency into our process and listening to user feedback (we have a form built right into our app!). This week, we decided to take a pause on the bigger features we're working on to focus solely on implementing user feedback. Consider it our first of many Feedback Weeks!

  • We Formed a Company

    The new Marathon logo.

    Marathon TV, Inc. is a brand new startup founded by Josh Pensky. Our mission is to foster a community of television enthusiasts and help folks tell their story through this new Golden Age of Television.

    Why Now?

  • See the Future

    A tablist with the Upcoming option selected. Below are the dates March 7 and March 14, with a list of episodes that release on those respective dates.

    Marathon has always been about two things: watching the latest TV and sharing that with friends. But therein lies the question: how can you watch the latest TV if you don't know when things are premiering?

    One of the most highly requested features has just made it to the app: Upcoming. We've split the Up Next screen into two tabs:

    • Watching. Track your current progress through the series you're watching (or paused).

    • Upcoming. Track all upcoming episodes of the series you're watching (or paused), including premieres and those batch drops we love to binge.

    With this new addition, the ever-expanding world of TV is at your fingertips.

  • Search Gets an Update

    The search logo with a green glow.

    For the OG users of Marathon 1.0, you may remember a time when search didn't happen in a pop-up screen. When we made the switch in 2.0, we thought it would help separate the search experience from the rest of the app.

    However, we heard some user feedback that it may feel too separate, making the tabs at the bottom of the screen inaccessible. In this latest update, we've decided to re-merge search with the rest of the app. As always, feel free to leave us feedback in-app to let us know what you think!

  • A Brand Emerges

    The new Marathon logo.

    Less than a year ago, we introduced Marathon to the world with the image of a rainbow gradient lighting up a TV screen. Our logo served us well. We created 12 (!) app icons that played with our logo in some way or another. We designed countless social media posts, announcing new features and our 2023 roadmap. But most importantly, it represented who we were: a bright, queer-founded start-up with a love for television that we wanted to share with the world.

    As Marathon continues to grow (as of writing, we're 3,000 strong!), we found that we reached the limit of our current branding. So, over the past few weeks, we tasked ourselves to find a new brand, one that could scale as we do. And, Marathon family, we've found it.

    The new Marathon logo is simple: it's a TV! But this TV opens up the door for new possibilities we couldn't imagine before — and we've already got a few ideas ready to go.

    So, what else has changed? Marathon's emerald green has shined bright throughout our app since day 1 and it was about time we put it front and center, replacing our old rainbow gradient 💚. We've also simplified our typography, now relying only on Pangram Pangram's Mori family, and cleaned up the icon system to match our new angular logo. And, of course, we couldn't forget our lovely app icons, which we refreshed across the board.

    A website is the perfect expression of a brand, and so we've updated ours to show off what our new logo can do. Check it out!

    We're so excited by Marathon's future and hope you are too! You'll start to see our branding updates roll out in our Android and iOS apps over the next few weeks.
