Social TV platform Voice of TV has Acquired GetGlue.com
Voice of TV is a passionate international team led by twin brothers Stefan and Erwin Gaasbeek. Stefan and Erwin saw the need for the industry to provide a service which GetGlue.com provided when they ceased operations in January 2014. This left a huge gap in which VoiceofTV.com is ready to fill!
Voice of TV will utilize the GetGlue.com database (4.5 million users) to inform them of the upgrade to their beloved service. This upgrade will include our new app Telfie, which will allow users to check-in to their favorite TV shows, Movies, YouTube channels and much, much more. The previous GetGlue.com users will be given the opportunity to participate in an exclusive beta-test of the new service.
Stefan Gaasbeek will head up the Telfie project and intends to reinstate the physical stickers issued when checking into TV Shows. This will hopefully encourage users to return to the service in which they created a Change.org petition with over 5000 signatures urging GetGlue.com to bring back the physical stickers portion of the service. Telfie is also partnering up with some major players on YouTube in the U.S., the Netherlands, the U.K., and Germany to allow fans to unlock custom stickers from around the world.
A new website design for VoiceofTV.com will be released later this year with a mobile apps following soon after.
