Our company’s namesake, Philo T. Farnsworth, was a lifelong inventor, tinkerer, and television pioneer. The foundation of our brand and company values is inspired by Farnsworth's wide-eyed optimism about the future, his passion for innovation, and his indomitable spirit—it's why we continuously strive to create a better way to watch TV.

We stand by our values
Do the right thing
We do what’s right by being authentic, diligent, humble, and respectful. We stand up for our beliefs and strive to challenge the status quo.
Work until you love the result
We can't settle for mediocrity. Making a product that we can be proud of requires refining, rethinking, and iterating on what we've done.
Shared passion makes a team
If we don’t have the tools to succeed, we build them. Our biggest strength as a team comes from our combined passions, drive, and ingenuity.
Progress is always at the limits
When we don't know the answers, we use it as an opportunity to learn and aim to find the right solution as a team.
Clarity and ownership drive results
We’re always specific when proposing new ideas, establish clear project ownership, and break into smaller teams to reduce scope.
Good decisions over perfect decisions
Great ideas can come from anywhere or anyone. We will always promote progress over perfection when making decisions.
