Key features include: 

 

Ability to subscribe to shows, watch episodes, create playlists
  Support for multiple video formats (depending on what the user’s browser supports (including WebM, Ogg, MP4, and even a Flash fallback)
  A Categories page with an overview of the different shows/categories available in the app
  Notifications of new episodes (when the app is installed via the Chrome Web Store)
  Built in support for sharing to Google+, Twitter and Facebook
