There is no shortage of video-based applications available for download, between Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and other services that allow you to watch streaming video on the go. But how many actually come across feeling like a TV-style experience That’s what N3twork is looking to provide with the launch of its application.

The service, which launched last week, is a new video service that caters to those looking for videos that consumers wouldn’t find through the normal video channels. “There is amazing content out there,” said Neil Young, the creator of the N3twork app. “You’re just never going to find it.”

The focus of N3twork, according to Young, is the “fat middle,” reserved for channels that do occupy space on a basic medium, but still don’t quite find the audience as intended through the algorithms of other applications.

The app provides a number of categories to root through, including sports, business, technology, food and others. After the user selects a video channel, a video will show through a broader channel, offering a secondary category such as photography or art and design, to name an example.

Over the course of its use, N3twork keeps track of the videos viewers watch, then caters to what they’re looking for, instead of focusing on videos that are skipped past. The saved videos take top priority, although general viewing habits are also watched.

The channel utilizes about 1,000 hours of video a day, according to Young, from across 6,500 unique online sources, including specific YouTube channels, as well as more popular services like BBC and Bloomberg.

Sharing said videos to N3twork isn’t a violation of their appearance on the original source sites, as it doesn’t really remove any advertising that was built in to its applications. It merely sources the video into its feed and allows the user to play it. In addition, users can create their own custom channels, even ones devoted to their housepets and children, if they prefer.

N3twork is still gaining some ground when it comes to building a user audience, but it could change the way that people look at online videos in the future. We certainly wish them the best of luck.
