GetGlue, your app for TV and movies, today debuted its updated iPhone app just in time for fall TV, making your watching experience simpler and more enjoyable. GetGlue's new features include a TV and streaming Guide plus remote control for DIRECTV subscribers.
"The way people watch TV is changing. What is not changing is people's love for great storytelling and engaging content," said Alex Iskold, founder and CEO of GetGlue. "The new GetGlue for iPhone has been designed from the ground up for the modern viewer. It is one simple app to discover, watch, keep up with and discuss their favorite shows."
Major features include:
- What to Watch: Find What to Watch right now on TV, on streaming and in theaters using the fully redesigned guide. In addition to what is on TV, the guide includes new movies and shows from On Demand, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, HBO GO, CBS, FOX, FX, AMC and a dozen more streaming services and apps. Another exciting feature is the remote control for DIRECTV. Users can connect their GetGlue app with their DIRECTV box to change the channel right from the On TV Now section in the guide.
- New Search & Discover: The new "Search & Discover" allows users to indulge their TV mood. Browse by genre or pick from "Fun Lists" curated by GetGlue's editorial team. Choose a show to "Binge Watch," select a movie from "Date Night" or just go straight to the "Latest & Greatest." The "Want to Watch" feature helps you track your watch list and get reminders for new episodes, seasons on streaming and theatrical and VOD releases for movies.
- Updated Show Pages: Updated show pages include Summary, Feed and Watch tabs. By default, the Feed tab shows you updates from your friends and what is trending right now. Use the new filters to see videos, photos or live comments from other fans. Connect your Twitter account to get Tweets from friends about your favorite shows. We've also added episode information so you can find upcoming air dates, track the newest episodes available on streaming and revisit past episodes.
- Posting memes, gifs, videos and more: In addition to commenting on shows, users can now add memes, gifs, videos or news articles to any of their posts. GetGlue's content curators select the best fan posts and feature them on show pages for the entire community to enjoy.
The GetGlue App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or at www.AppStore.com/GetGlue.
