VH1’S “Love & Hip-Hop” Afterparty Live


VH1 wanted to increase fan engagement and social media chatter surrounding one of its most popular shows, “Love & Hip Hop”, during the live after-show.


Telescope’s social marketing platform, Connect Live, engaged the audience through various social products by curating social comments and questions for on-air, powering real-time polls, and building #HASHTAG Battles.


The premiere of the after-show had a staggering 4.5 million viewers, landing it in the #1 spot amongst cable telecasts that day. The hashtags for the real-time poll trended on Twitter and fans flooded Telescope’s moderation tool with questions for the guests of the show.

“Telescope has been an amazing partner, and while it’s just been one episode, we’ve already learned so much that we’re implementing for future weeks”
– Dave Perry, the Vice President of Future TV and Cross-Platform Innovation for VH1
