Zoom (Nasdaq: ZM) replaced the phone call. Hearo aims to replace TV.

The company has created an interactive entertainment platform that transforms passive media into a fun, social experience. Users can connect with friends who share their interests in movies, sports, shows, and events.

Hearo blends two technologies: a software-based “smart” TV with a safe, voice-based social network. Fans can cheer, talk, and applaud together.

More than 1 million people use Hearo as their new source of entertainment. The company has raised nearly $3.5 million from investors including 500 Startups, Inspiration VC, and the co-founder of video game company Electronic Arts.
