We’ve been working on a really big update and are super excited to share it with you today. The new app features a reimagined guide for shows, movies, and sports, and it changes the way people discover what to watch. Additionally, GetGlue will now bring you the best related content about your favorite shows to the second screen.
A New Kind of Guide
The GetGlue update comes with a reimagined guide to help you find what shows, movies, and sports to watch.
Traditional guides display a grid of hundreds of impersonal choices. Instead, the new GetGlue guide is a simple, personalized list of shows, movies, and sports you already like and watch. The guide always prioritizes what to watch right now: new episodes bubble up above the reruns, you can see what your friends are watching right in the guide, and you get recommendations for shows that match your tastes.
The new GetGlue guide is not a grid; it is a personalized calendar for what to watch. As you scroll through it, you see new episodes of shows for tomorrow, a summary of what is on for you this and next week, and a calendar view of key premieres, finales, and major events like the Emmys, Oscars, and the Super Bowl.
This reimagined guide is not just smart about television shows. If you’re a sports fans, you can see your favorite teams’ schedules, stats, and live scores right in the guide. On the weekends, the guide recommends new movies in theaters that match your taste. You can also use the guide to discover shows and movies to watch on streaming services like iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon. The guide also comes with a flexible search that helps you find listings, teams, movies, genres, channels, and more.
A New Kind of Second Screen
After you discover what to watch, you check-in and are taken to a new kind of second-screen experience. You can still connect and chat with friends and other fans while watching TV. In addition to chatting, you discover videos, images, tweets, and reviews - the best content about your favorite shows.
Instead of going to many different sites and having to get clips, episode images, tweets from talent, and show recaps, you can now enjoy all this content aggregated on GetGlue into a single feed. The content comes from official channels and can be upvoted by friends and fans, helping the best content bubble up.
GetGlue HD is available immediately on the iPad and will come out on the iPhone, Android, mobile site, and GetGlue.com later in the fall.
