Justin.tv, founded in San Francisco by Justin Kan, is a network of various channels providing a platform for lifecasting and live video streaming of events online. The original Justin.tv was a single channel that evolved into the Justin.tv network of thousands of various channels. Paul Graham, of the seed capital firm Y Combinator, initially funded US$50,000 to Justin.tv.

Justin.tv has been compared to EDtv, Being John Malkovich, and The Truman Show. Wearing a webcam attached to a cap, Kan decided he would wear the camera 24/7, and he began streaming continuous live video and audio at midnight March 19, 2007. The novelty of the concept attracted media attention, and the resulting interviews included Ann Curry on the Today Show (April 2, 2007), Tom Merritt on the first episode of CNET Live, Nightline (April 6, 2007) and World News Tonight (April 8, 2007).
