The Scene offers short and long-form video content from brands and channels like Wired, GQ, Glamour, Vogue, ABC News, Buzzfeed and more.
The Scene is a digital video network, offering streamable content from a variety of sources. The site is powered by Condé Nast Entertainment, so the content comes from company publications like Vogue, GQ and Wired. There are also videos from more traditional media companies like ABC News, as well as newer distribution channels like JASH and Buzzfeed. Each of these companies has its own dedicated page on The Scene in which all of their video content is organized. Most of the videos are short and easily sharable, and they flow into one another for as long as you want to watch.
The Scene offers a new way of watching television online. The ability to flip between channels recalls a traditional television viewing experience, while it’s also easy to select your own content or browse shows on The Scene’s homepage. The site also organizes videos into news articles and playlists centered around specific themes, making discovery a bit more easy to manage. The site also offers some original content, such as the show ‘HeyUSA.’ That show, which has all 9 episodes of its 1st season hosted on The Scene, depicts the adventures of Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart as they travel throughout the United States taking suggestions for things to do from social media. These type of forward-thinking approaches to digital media are at home on The Scene, and the site offers a promising outlook for the way video content will be consumed in the future.
