Project Concept 
TV-TWO is a Blockchain-based Open Platform for the Television Ecosystem. TV-TWO eliminates the gatekeeper status of TV networks and prevents centralistic tech giants from owning the medium in the future. It is bringing trustless transactions and crypto wallets to 700 million Smart TVs around the globe. They tokenize reach on the Big Screen and facilitate a direct value exchange between users, advertisers, and content creators through payment channels.
Project Purposes
TV-TWO's purpose is to create a blockchain-based Open Platform that helps to decentralize the TV ecosystem in order to spread the oligopolistic surplus of TV networks among Consumers, Content Creators, and Advertisers.
They intend to use the Ethereum blockchain as the underlying technology through which users can view traditional television, along with premium content with no subscription costs. Community members can view this streaming content and earn tokens by choosing to see sponsored messages from advertisers.
The immutability and transparency of blockchain transactions play a critical role in the decentralized TV ecosystem that as TV-TWO are building. The underpinning of the new marketplace for consumers, content partners, and advertisers will be the Token for Television (TTV). It is based on the public open-source platform Ethereum that facilitates blockchain-based distributed computing and smart contract functionality.
The following interactions in their model are based on TTV:
1. Advertisers give TTV to users for watching sponsored videos.
2. Content Providers get TTV from users for offering premium video content.
3. Consumers accumulate TTV that they can store in their wallet and offer on exchanges.
TV-TWO is introducing the Token for Television (TTV) as the currency in a new, globally decentralized TV ecosystem. Transactions between advertisers and users as well as between users and content providers are always tied to the Token for Television. Other cryptocurrencies and fiat cannot be used to exchange value between market participants. Advertisers have to acquire TTV during the crowdsale or on exchanges in order to sponsor messages.

The purpose of the project with examples
TV-TWO is an application for Connected TVs that offers regular consumers of broadcast television an easy way to transition into a world with a personalized video stream. A major part of the solution is the fact that the traditional broadcast signal is watched through the app.
An application for Connected TVs that blends traditional television with a personalized video stream offering premium content at no subscription costs. The video stream can always be opened with just one click of a button.
The Token for Television (TTV), an ERC20 token that administers the exchanged value between consumers, content providers, and advertisers. They propose a new ecosystem, where the trustless nature of the Ethereum blockchain makes it possible for market participants to interact directly without having to rely on middlemen.
Consumers get to watch curated videos while receiving TTV for choosing to see sponsored messages from advertisers. Content creators are rewarded by users with TTV for their quality productions.
