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?

Since our launch of Marathon 2.0 back in January, the Marathon community has grown to over 4,000 members and sees around 200 active users every day. In February, we were featured in the App Store’s Best New Apps and Updates list and even had an article written about us in Lifehacker! Marathon has gotten a lot of traction since our initial release in August 2022, and it’s time we took the next step.

What's Changing?

Marathon will remain the same social TV network app that you’ve come to love. The same team that has worked on Marathon up to this point will continue working on it in the future.

In the short term, the biggest change will be some small updates to our website, Privacy Policy, and Terms of Service to account for the ownership change from founder Josh Pensky to Marathon TV, Inc.

Over the longer term, we hope that this step leads to our first investments from venture capital firms and angel investors who believe in Marathon TV, Inc.’s mission. We plan to use these investments to build up a larger team working on the app, which means greater stability, more features, and more support for our growing community of television lovers.

What Can I Do?

  • Keep telling your friends about Marathon! We love seeing new users joining the app and creating social circles with their friends and family.
  • Are you a founder? We’d be excited to get in contact with you and learn more about your journey through these first few stages.
  • Know of (or are yourself) a TV-loving investor? We’d love to talk more about the future of our platform and how you can support us.

We couldn’t be more excited about this announcement and all that comes with it. Marathon started as a passion project 6 years ago and has truly blossomed into something bigger than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to all our users and folks that have supported this project over the past few years 💚
