About PEDESTRIAN.TV

PEDESTRIAN.TV is a youth-focused online news and entertainment publisher, AKA Australia’s House Of Pop Culture, AKA the Home of the Unhinged, AKA the Bedrock of Bedlam. Here, it’s everything spicy, all of the time.

We tell the stories that need to be told in a language that our audience speaks. From hard news and breaking national and international events, through to entertainment, music, food, style, opinion, and beyond; if it’s hot and happening now, we know it back to front and we can’t wait to tell you about it.

OUR HISTORY

Since launching as a DVD ‘Plastizine’ in 2005, PEDESTRIAN.TV has grown from cult beginnings to Australia’s leading youth media brand.

Initially distributed as a free DVD magazine, founders Chris Wirasinha and Oscar Martin wanted to change the publishing game by creating a platform that would speak to, and resonate with, young Aussies in an entirely new way.

A few short years later in 2007, PEDESTRIAN.TV launched online as the digital House of Pop Culture and immediately got down to the business at hand: Crafting spicy, spicy yarns for Australia’s most switched-on audience.

In 2010, Pedestrian JOBS was launched, connecting eager, young job-seekers across Australia with the job of their dreams. Very quickly it became the #1 destination for businesses in Australia looking to recruit their next MVP.

Nine Entertainment Co. came on board in 2018 and aided a period of rapid growth, and today PEDESTRIAN.TV is an industry-leading digital publisher, producing content ranging from the latest entertainment, tech, gaming, lifestyle, and local news, through to in-depth investigative journalism and unique opinion writing.

We are PEDESTRIAN.TV. We make news, with bite.
