Yidio, the independent online television guide, today announced it reached a significant milestone, signing up its 1.5 millionth registered user and offering up content to 10 million monthly visitors on the eve of its three-year anniversary.
As watching television online has skyrocketed, more and more fans are seeking out tools that make it easy to find, watch and share TV. Riding the tidal wave of social TV, 500,000 Yidio users have also taken their TV likes and comments onto Facebook, where more than half of them are active users engaging with posts, comments and questions.
Yidio Credits, the first and only program of its kind, enables Yidio's 1.5 million registered users to earn credits. Since the program was introduced, users have earned more than 600 million credits, enabling them to watch and own premium content.
Company Milestones Reached in May 2011
At 500,000 “likes,” Yidio leads all the TV guides on Facebook, and there is no stopping the rise of interactions around TV shows that viewers love. On the Yidio website, users engage in social sharing and commenting at high rates. On a monthly basis, the Top 25 shows alone on Yidio generate over 150,000 social activities defined as liking, sharing, or commenting. The shows generating the most buzz in April 2011 were True Blood, Glee, Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, and Jersey Shore.
“The growth in Yidio’s user base, community engagement and virtual currency reflects the overwhelming trend in seeking out online TV and second screen TV experiences,” said Brandon Eatros, CEO of Yidio, “TV viewers are hungry for tools to help them watch and share online.”
