About Web Show Central.TV
Web Show Central.TV is the home of indie web TV down under. It’s a portal to watch shows and a magazine (formerly Viewfinder magazine) dedicated to digital content – all in one place.
We’ve brought together innovative and entertaining web shows from Down Under all in one place for easy discovery and viewing.
We also review web shows to help you determine what’s good (and not so good) about the shows before you click to watch. Plus we interview web series creators, short filmmakers and YouTubers for an exclusive peek behind the scenes of making the shows.
For creators, or those aspiring to create digital content, we also include valuable tips to inform and motivate you in your creative journey.
You can read our magazine articles on the website, or subscribe to our newsletter where we bring together all our exclusive articles for you each month and in our magazine each quarter.
We focus on independent digital short form content; web series, YouTubers and short film, because we believe they’re the future of indie TV.
Web series are a series of videos, generally in episodic form available to watch online.
Because anyone can make a web series and load it to the internet, web series vary in quality; from the enthusiastic amateurs to highly professional productions. Genres range from comedy, sci-fi, how-to’s, reviews, travel and documentaries.
Over the last couple of years there has been an increase in web series being produced and funded in New Zealand and Australia – but they are scattered all over the internet.
Our Web Series Channel provides one place to discover, view and connect with web series produced by creatives down under and a place for creators to showcase their web series and connect with their audiences.
You can watch these web series (also known as video series, webisodes, online TV, original series) from your internet TV, your mobile device and your computer; where ever you have an internet connection. That means you can watch indie TV when you want, and where you want.
There are hundreds and hundreds of YouTube channels produced by content creators down under; from make-up advice, to gamers, to travel vlogs, to skits. We review and highlight the best channels, the best YouTubers, and the best videos.
We include finalists and winning entries from Tropfest NZ, Loading Docs, Inspiring Stories and Outlook for Someday to inspire and entertain you.
We recommend subscribing (for free!) to receive the latest shows, interviews and reviews to your inbox.
