zeebox users can now enjoy compelling, relevant content recommendations in exciting new ways. Launched this week, the zeebox "Recommended For You" feature delivers personalized recommendations based on individual viewing behavior within the zeebox application. In addition, zeebox's "Similar Shows" feature allows users to discover related content that is most similar to the show currently being watched, what has been watched, or what is available in the future.
