Tech News Today in 2016

As 2016 approaches, we are making a few changes to TWiT’s News Department.

Mike Elgan has decided to move on from TWiT to focus on his writing and resume his world travels. We wish him the very best, and he will still be a regular guest on both This Week in Google and This Week in Tech. You can follow his adventures as a "digital nomad" here.

We are excited to announce Jason Howell and Megan Morrone as the new hosts of Tech News Today. We look forward to this pairing and seeing how the show evolves in the new year. The redesigned Tech News Today launches on January 4, 2016, and you can subscribe here.

(Megan Morrone will be anchoring TNT in the interim, through the rest of 2015).

Stay tuned! We will have more updates soon on changes to the TWiT Live schedule for 2016.

TWiT & Good Morning America's "40 for 40"

We are thrilled to announce that TWiT will be a part of "40 for 40," which is Good Morning America's 40-hour marathon event to celebrate its 40th anniversary. This 40-hour broadcast will begin on Tuesday, November 17th at 2PM Pacific on the ABC News website.

On Wednesday, November 18th, from 10PM to 11PM Pacific, Becky Worley will be broadcasting live from the TWiT Brick House Studios in Petaluma, CA as part of this event. Our very own Leo Laporte will be joining Becky as a special guest co-host, along with additional guests (to be announced).

This hour-long portion of the marathon will be simulcast on both the ABC News website and on TWiT’s live stream; We will later release this hour for download and on-demand streaming as a TWiT Live Special.

Stay tuned! We will have more details soon.



An Update for Visiting TWiT

Effective November 12th, the TWiT Brick House will no longer be open to visitors on Thursdays and Fridays.

You are welcome to visit us any other day of the week for a studio tour and to watch our shows in person--but please remember that advance RSVPs are required.

Please email at least 24 hours in advance. Be sure to include your name (and the names of others in your party), as well as the day and time of your visit, along with the shows you are interested in watching.

For more information and guidelines, be sure to read this page on the TWiT Wiki.

We hope to see you soon!



TWiT Apps Available on New Apple TV Boxes

Apple's new Apple TV adds support for apps. We're excited to announce that there are three fan-created TWiT apps available today, at launch.

The "TWiTtv" app was created by Craig Mullaney of ShiftKeySoftware. The app features both the live stream and pre-recorded episodes of all TWiT shows.  Craig has previously created popular TWiT apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac OS X, and Roku.

Stuart J. Moore of Intentionally Blank has created "The TWiT Network" app which uses the TWiT API to allow access to on-demand episodes.  The app also features the live stream as well as the ability to view the chat room while you watch.

The third app is titled "TWiT on TV" and was created by Mike Milinazzo of If{Then}Develop.  It also uses the TWiT API in order to provide the latest information.

Thanks to our incredible app developers for staying ahead of the curve and helping make our content available on Apple TV.

Please note that these apps are only available on the new Apple TV, not previous models.
