Pokimane reveals why she went for the name 'OfflineTV'

OfflineTV has grown to be one of the most successful organizations in the streaming community. While individually, each streamer at OfflineTV is doing really well for themselves, it seems as though OfflineTV is where they come to unwind and simply hang out with each other.

Pokimane explained that this was precisely her reason for naming the organization OfflineTV, since it was where fans could see the things the streamers do during their downtime.

"I came up with the name OfflineTV because I wanted it to be a channel that showcased the stuff we do offline."

Though she seemed proud of the name she had come up with, she did not just stop at that. She even went on to poke fun at the names that Scarra and Chris had come up with.

"You know what the f**k Scarra and, at the time, Chris came up with? It was like 'Lobster Town' and 'Boosted Monkeys'. And I was like *dramatic pause* maybe- maybe not!"

The streamer even revealed that for a short duration, the group referred to themselves as 'Boosted Monkeys', but later switched to OfflineTV.

OfflineTV has many prominent streamers, including Pokimane, Lilypichu, Michael Reeves, Scarra, and Disguised Toast. In fact, TSM president Leena Xu had also announced that she will be working with OTV now that she has retired from TSM.
