BuddyTV Guide, the top-rated custom channel guide app for TV fans from BuddyTV, has added more than 38,000 TV episodes and films on iTunes to its inventory, further enhancing the app’s comprehensive approach to content discovery, and greatly expanding the breadth of new and popular movies and shows available instantly to its users.
“The iTunes store has the richest selection of top TV shows and recently released movies for download, and we’re extremely pleased that we can now offer this incredible catalog through BuddyTV Guide’s innovative discovery process,” BuddyTV CEO Andy Liu said. “There is so much great content available on iTunes, and we take the work out of finding the right show, right now.”
BuddyTV Guide helps users find what's on TV, discover new entertainment and make faster and easier viewing decisions by integrating the user’s cable and streaming services into one seamless, searchable and customizable guide. Now, alongside up-to-date listings from their cable, satellite or broadcast channels, Netflix and Amazon Instant accounts and DVR choices, users can explore the thousands of TV shows and movies on iTunes, see choices for renting or buying, then simply tap once to tune in to the program on their iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.
The app uses a smart recommendation engine to surface content that is most compatible with the user’s tastes, which the user can continually enhance by rating, favoriting and checking in to programs. Users can also filter their full channel lineup by program type, blacklist channels or shows they don’t want to see, and set reminders for their favorite programs. With its extensive curation and personalization abilities, the BuddyTV Guide is the powerhouse mobile solution for users to quickly browse and watch across all their entertainment services, including the iTunes catalog.
In addition to aggregating quick program options, the BuddyTV Guide app offers access to thousands of original articles and slideshows from BuddyTV.com, as well as video previews and trailers for tons of popular shows and movies. Users can also post their thoughts on a program to Facebook and Twitter, chat with other fans and share or suggest what they’re watching with Facebook friends. Users with compatible devices can even use BuddyTV Guide as their remote control, and tap the app to send available selections straight to their televisions.
The free app is available for all iOS devices in the iTunes store, and for Android and GoogleTV devices in the Google Play marketplace. BuddyTV Guide provides listings for OTA, cable and satellite TV providers in the US. These include Comcast, Cablevision, Time Warner, Verizon, DirecTV, Dish and many more. Any user with an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV can watch the iTunes catalog on their device from the BuddyTV Guide. 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 app’s 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.
