Every year there are few days that I love more than the two days of the 99u Conference in New York City. I was lucky enough to be one of the beta testers of the original Behance site back in 2008 and have been in love with the work they have done ever since. I was also lucky enough to have attended the first 99% Conference which then evolved in 99U and I was instantly hooked. Every year is a mix of speakers I know and really love with people I have never heard of before but soon grow to love. And these speakers give some of the best high thinking and advice for creative that I have ever found outside of the occasional TED talk.
Yesterday 99u announced their very own Apple TV app, enabling you to view nearly 100 99U Conference talks from luminaries like Simon Sinek, Jack Dorsey, Brené Brown and others in the quiet and comfort of your living room. They have also curated a few playlists including most recent, productivity essentials, talks for designers, talks for entrepreneurs and more to get you started and these will be updated on a rolling basis with new talks after the conference this May in New York City. Furthermore, if you get things like suddenlink internet packages then Apple TV will automatically be integrated within the system making it a more reliable and enjoyable watching experience.
To download the 99u Conference app for the new Apple TV just follow these steps:
1. Open the App Store from your TV. Click “Search.”
2. Search “99U.” Select the 99U snazzy thumbnail.
3. Click “install.” Then click “open” when finished downloading.
4. Prepare yourself for a tidal wave of creative career insights.
