Buzz 2: Instagram TV

Instagram TV launched late June. Instagram have released both a new standalone IGTV app as well as updated the Instagram app with a tab directly inside the original app itself.

Instagram TV allows creators to upload, and users to watch, vertical videos that are up to one-hour long and in many ways is modeled off YouTube channels.

Key reasons why marketers should take notice:

  • This is bigger than stories. One of the issues with stories is stories disappear after 24 hours. Not neccessarily a bad thing however this made some brands reluctant to create content in a format that would disappear.
  • Instagram TV will be the catalyst for portrait videos. More reason to create bespoke portrait/vertical videos.
  • Early mover advantage is clearly now. Treat IGTV as a new network, not just a new instagram feature.

Official resource guide from Instagram on how to create an IGTV channel and upload videos.
