BuddyTV Guide Adds New World of Free TV and Movie Trailers(June 19, 2012)
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
BuddyTV Guide, the top-rated channel guide and TV companion app from BuddyTV, helps its users find the right show, right now with its powerful recommendation engine, personalized listings and multiple content sources. Now the app has added another way for TV fans to decide if a movie or TV episode is right for them: the app now hosts more than 70,000 movie and TV trailers in its inventory, giving users the ability to preview available films and episodes before they tune in.
BuddyTV Guide now serves up the latest available clip or trailer for almost 200 TV series, more than 44,000 unique television episodes and almost 27,000 movies that users can find inside the app, with more being added all the time.
The new preview feature expands upon BuddyTV Guides mission to help its users discover their must-see TV -- which the app also recognizes means more than just cable and broadcast channels these days. Along with their local channel listings and DVR, users can enable multiple streaming content sources, such as Netflix, Amazon and iTunes, and see all these sources inside one seamless, searchable guide. Users can view show, episode and movie trailers without leaving the app, and see the videos alongside even more details, like episode descriptions, news and photos, scheduling information and availability across their entertainment services.
We want our users to be overjoyed, not overloaded, by all their options, said BuddyTV CEO Andy Liu. With tens of thousands of episodes and movies available at any given moment, the simple question of What should I watch? can become legitimately challenging. The ability to watch a quick video preview is just one of the many ways that BuddyTV Guide helps you answer that question faster and more easily -- and its just a lot more fun, too.
BuddyTV Guide works by syncing to the users personal cable or broadcast lineup and streaming services, integrating them into one guide and curating personalized recommendations based on favorites, ratings and check-ins -- so the more someone uses the app, the better it works. Users can search for a specific program, see their entire up-to-date TV lineup, and filter by favorite shows and channels, program type, or whats popular or new at the moment. The app also gives users the abilities to blacklist channels or shows they dont want to see, set reminders for their favorite programs, and even tap to tune in on compatible devices, using the app itself as their remote control.
Beyond clips and trailers, the app also hosts several entertaining and social features surrounding tons of popular shows and movies, including access to thousands of original articles and slideshows from BuddyTV.com, sharing capabilities to Twitter and Facebook, the ability to text with viewing buddies and more.
The BuddyTV Guide app is available for free for iOS devices in the iTunes store, for Android and GoogleTV devices in the Google Play marketplace, and provides listings for cable and satellite TV providers in the US. These include Comcast, Cablevision, Time Warner, Verizon, DirecTV, Dish and many more. The ability to watch trailers is currently available for users on the iPhone or iPad. Users with AT&T U-verse receivers, DirecTV DVRs, Sony Internet TV with Google TV, Logitech Revue, TiVo Series 3, TiVo Premier, any devices controlled by Google TV and Samsung Smart TVs can use the apps remote control capabilities.
BuddyTV's goal is to help TV fans discover their must-see TV. As the #1 independent TV site on the web, this means providing a venue for over 5 million unique visitors per month to connect with fellow fans, read the latest news and enjoy entertaining features about their favorite shows. Now, with over 400,000+ downloads on iOS and an almost perfect average user rating of 4.7 stars, the BuddyTV Guide app is enhancing and expanding the ways that consumers enjoy their TV time.
