Snapchat is joining the online television game, set to compete with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

The photo and video-messaging app is launching Snap Channel, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, “the company’s channel is meant to promote interested content that will surprise its users.”

One of those shows, set to premiere on Saturday January 31st, is ‘Literally Can’t Even’ starring Sasha Spielberg (Steven’s daughter) and Emily Goldwyn (John’s daughter).

‘Literally Can’t Even’ “stars the friends and writing partners as comedic versions of themselves- Spielberg recently single after a long relationship and Goldwyn embarking on a six-month cleanse,” describes The Hollywood Reporter.

The one thing that will make Snap Channel’s original series stand apart from it’s competitors is it’s choice to stick with Snapchat’s “ephemeral message” platform. The app allows users to send photos and videos that disappear within moments of viewing. The TV episodes will be released every Saturday, but will disappear from the website after 24 hours.

Additionally, each episode will be less than 5 minutes in length, and as Goldwyn explains, are created to make the audience feel like voyeurs into these girls’ lives for mere moments each week.

“These are snapshots of our life, which is perfect for Snapchat. It feels perfect for the generation that we’re writing for,” she says.

While the format is perfect for the millennial generation, with it’s short length and digital platform, it’s also reminiscent of days past. Remember when you needed to be home on Thursday night to watch your favorite TV show? If you weren’t sitting on your couch at the exact moment it began, there was a chance you may never see it again? I miss those days too… and Snap Channel’s 24-hour window guarantees that people all over the globe will be sharing an experience at the same time.
