MYETV has a history. This place have an history. Every years during the month of April we celebrate the birthday of our first programmer and founder (the only one probably still alive or not yet arrested after almost 15 years); this is a very hard time and in fact who is writing to you is the founder :) several logistical problems, not caused by us, forced us to work for a whole year without being able to move; this has caused numerous problems for our work. One of the most well-known problems was the cyber attack of August/September 2020, but also several other situations also in 2021 in which it was necessary to get together to work; Sometimes, with a lot of courage, we updated the parts of the platform by ourselves without even coordinating, during the construction of some apps we had to proceed in the dark without suitable tools and without test personnel. This situation is truly scandalous. Not only for our history (over 15 years online) but also for the entire countries we live in. This is a main-update and includes a number of features that will be posted separately, day after day; we start from mid-March 2021 to finish in mid-April 2021, the post will be updated and shared in our officila social pages every time some update is ready.
This time we will try to make a big update for everyone, even for the long-awaited features not implemented in the past updates; let’s start anticipating what you will see by the end of this week then we will continue to improve the features:

We will update this list day by day, whenever there is an important update to be accounted for; MYETV is a very large platform with decades of activity behind it and always on the move, we always try to get our work to you as transparent as possible; for this reason we continue to modernize, we change many things while always remaining faithful to what is the initial project. We remind you that MYETV was born in a period in which two famous platforms prevailed on the Internet that currently have closed due to various problems; we are there. We are always here for anyone who needs it, our primary contacts are public, we explain the things we do in this blog, we never ran away and we will never run away because we have nothing to hide and nothing to lose. After this little clarification, I greet you and refer you to the appointments of these months to celebrate with us the next MYETV update for everyone; thanks for reading this; have a nice day, folks!!!
