DirecTV has decided to more closely integrate GetGlue into its TV and mobile offerings, thus making it possible for its subscribers to check in with GetGlue and change channels to see what their friends are watching. GetGlue is the leading social network for
entertainment. The way it works is users check-in and share what they are watching, listening to and reading with friends. This allows other users to get fresh recommendations, exclusive stickers, discounts and other rewards from GetGlue partners. GetGlue was named one of the 6 promising new companies in 2010 and is currently working with more than 50 major entertainment companies, and DirecTV is one of the most recent to get in on the action.
While DirecTV isn’t the first to join forces with GetGlue, they are the first to natively integrate the service of a major pay TV provider. Enhancements to the DirecTV Social TV App and GetGlue features allow DirecTV customers in the U.S. the ability to use their remote control to check-in to their favorite TV shows. They can then search and find out what their friends are watching by tuning into their feeds and check-ins. “Our customers are passionate about their TV programming, and always looking for new ways to engage with DirecTV content,” noted Romulo Pontual, executive vice president and CTO, DirecTV in a statement. “Our integration with GetGlue provides our customers with the perfect platform to connect with one another.”
In addition to partnering with DirecTV, GetGlue has also enhanced their GetGlue iPhone app. The new and improved iPhone app is able to detect and pair with DirecTV set-top-boxes so that the GetGlue app will automatically detect what’s on TV, making it easier for GetGlue users to check-in and share what they are watching.
