San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2011
Yidio, the leading independent online television guide, today launched the first multi-channel personalized news feed for television and movies that “brings TV to you.”
“Just because TV is everywhere doesn’t mean you should have to look all over to find it,” said Brandon Eatros, CEO of Yidio, “Yidio Alerts bring all your TV to you, leveraging the pre-eminent social channels to deliver a personalized, prioritized, TV guide.”
TV fans can now sign up to get push notifications for new episode broadcast airings, new online streaming episode availability, and new articles published on their favorite TV shows & movies. The alerts can be delivered by email, Facebook, Twitter, or viewed on the Yidio website.
How Yidio Alerts Works:
Import Your Favorites: Users can import any TV show or movie favorite from their Facebook profile, enter favorite shows at signup or add shows to notifications and favorites whenever they use Yidio.
Choose Your Notifications: Alerts include new episode airing day, time and network; new episodes available online to stream with links; and original news stories.
Pick Your Channel: Users can select their preferred communication method, via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
The public beta launch of Yidio Alerts services for Facebook, email and Twitter demonstrates the scalability and flexibility of the core Yidio API and program guide to aggregate, normalize and broadcast complex entertainment information.
