Startup iTV bought GetGlue last year, and has revamped what began as the social media service for TV fans. However, there are some changes from the original concept. Whereas GetGlue let you check in to TV shows you’re watching, that feature is gone from the new TVTag, replaced by checking in to specific episode. The real-time conversation starts here, and the app makes it easy to create memes and share thoughts on Facebook and Twitter.
There’s a lot of love for TV in our office. But we believe it has a whole lot more to offer. More interaction more to discover, more fun. And that’s why we made tvtag.
tvtag is a second screen app that synchronizes content and audience reaction with TV moments. We invite viewers everywhere to tag along and make the most of TV.
The tvtag app and platform built by the team behind i.TV, the creator of its namesake mobile TV guide app for iOS and Android. Creator of the most downloaded TV guide app in the history of Apple’s App Store, i.TV designs and builds second screen and social TV experiences for brands like AOL, Huffington Post, and Entertainment Weekly. Every month over 15 million people use i.TV technology to discover, watch and engage with television.
