Two years ago, when FourFourtwo.com first launched, the site was a new way for anyone to find news on television, radio, and streaming services.
Now, as technology evolves and new media outlets take off, we expect to see a return to traditional news sites, the company said.
But while many of us are watching the new generation of TV and streaming platforms take off like never before, we may not be seeing the last of the classic TV shows that have been around for decades.
In fact, FourFour two’s founders have a vision for the site, one that they are hoping will eventually bring back the “classic” format.
The site’s founding team believes it can return to the “big, bold, and edgy” TV shows like The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live that are the heart of what the industry calls “classic programming.”
“We want to be able to say we’re going back to a time when the classics were very popular and people were really into the big, bold and edgier stuff that was on,” said Matt Bostock, a managing partner at FourFour.
“We want that to be true for all of the shows that are out there.”
Bostock said the site’s goal is to be a place where “everybody knows what’s great about TV, but the shows are also still funny and good.”
The site will have a “truly classic” look and feel, Bostocks said.
“It will be as much of a classic as a television show that we know how to make,” he said.
Bostocks hopes that with the help of new technology, the original shows will be able “to become a part of the conversation.”
“You’re going to see more shows that were on the air for years and years, like Saturday Night, where you could sit in a chair and watch them,” he added.
“And that’s what we’re trying to do, that’s why we’re bringing back some of those shows.”
The new site will focus on shows like Game of Thrones and the upcoming Netflix originals.
Bolstering the site is an aggressive approach to content, with the site focusing on original content and premium content from premium networks.
The site will feature original programming from major TV networks, including CBS, Fox, NBC, and PBS.
“We have a lot of content that’s really good and has been around since the beginning of time,” Bostocking said.
Bustling into the news world, the website will be the largest news site on the internet. “
The goal is always to bring you some of that stuff that is really special and unique.”

Bostocked said the company has no plans to go to a subscription model or any other type of advertising.
“There’s a ton of value in content, but if you want to build a platform that has the same value as a newspaper, you need to pay a subscription,” he told The Daily Beast.
“You need to make a product that’s worth paying for.”
He added that the site will be “very much in the news business.”BOSTOCKS TAKE A PICTUREBostocked is excited about the prospect of bringing back a big name like SNL.
“The show is a big part of our DNA.
I know the fans will love it, and I know we’re a part the news industry.
We’ll always have people who want to go out and check out some of our shows and talk to the staff about them,” BOSTOCK said.
