If you own an Apple TV and you are looking for an app that helps surface great content, you may want to check out TechTube TV. The app, which was released last week, was designed to highlight videos that it believes users will find of interest.

The video selections are mainly technology-focused, featuring everything from TED talks to device reviews. There is also a mix of science and “how things work’ videos.

TechTube pulls in videos from sources like Reddit and YouTube, and then uses an algorithm based on shares and views to surface the “best” to the top. Finally a human curator picks which videos make it into the app.

The app has no menus, information screens, or advertisements. All you see after launching the app is a digital carousel of the most recently added videos, making for easy navigation, allowing you to quickly browse through the clips.

TechTube is available as a free download from the tvOS App Store.
