WNED-TV and Vidbolt, a Buffalo, NY start-up, are once again partnering on a social video project and we’re looking for your help!

Vidbolt has developed a new social video technology that allows you to discuss and share video moments. While watching a video, you can post a comment that stays attached to the moment in time in the video. These messages are posted in the comment stream next to the video, to your profile, and sent to your followers. You can also share your comments on Facebook and Twitter. This video platform is available on tablet, laptop and desktop computer.

Here’s how you can take part in five quick steps:

  1. Check out Vidbolt’s FAQ page and learn more about how the social video technology works

  2. Sign up for an account using either your Facebook login or email address at vidbolt.com

  3. Go to wned.org/socialTV and watch "The Great Erie County Fair" on your desktop, laptop or tablet anytime after 10 p.m. EDT on Monday, August 11.

  4. Comment on the program in real-time!

  5. Let us know what you think about the platform by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


Your participation is very much appreciated, and we look forward to sharing this innovative technology with our dedicated viewers!
