Welcome to Hypable.com: a new approach to online entertainment news. We pride ourselves on delivering the most dedicated and in-depth coverage possible across all of the fandoms we cover. Why? Because every Hypable writer only writes about fandoms they are personally a fan of.
We promise to share every story we find so you don’t miss a thing. What’s more, you will notice that all of our news stories are written with genuine passion; we’re just as excited to share the news as you are to read it!
At Hypable, we firmly believe that entertainment news avenues should cater for all types of fans, and let THEM decide what they want and don’t want to read. We don’t buy into that philosophy of only posting the big stories! Hardcore fans want to know all the latest news of their favorite movie, tv show, book series and so on, regardless of how big or mainstream it is. And they want it as quickly as possible!
To help us fully realize this mission statement, we have a number of cool features to make sure you get the news you want, when you want it. These include:
Hypable houses some of the most experienced and dedicated writers across the fandom universe, many of whom have run (and continue to run) the most popular websites dedicated to Harry Potter, Twilight and more. You can meet our current team below.
