Tubetime, a Montreal company dedicated to improving the TV experience, is proud to announce the iTunes launch of Tubetime, the All-in-One TV app. Tubetime delivers a complete second screen TV experience, loaded with features that TV fans want. Tubetime’s interactive program guide allows viewers to enrich their TV experience while watching their favourite shows on TV. The guide makes show discovery intuitive through the search tool, category filters or by seeing what shows are popular with other Tubetime users. By customizing their TV guide with favourites and reminders, users will never miss their must-see shows.
Following and participating in the Twitter conversation around what’s on TV has never been easier as hashtags for each program are integrated in the app. Additionally, users can share on Facebook, see what their friends like and even what they are watching! Interactivity on Tubetime goes beyond social media as users can participate and discover, in real-time, unique content, contests, offers and games about the shows they like.
Tubetime also transforms into a Universal Remote control when used with the optional Connector. Once plugged-in the audio jack of a mobile device, the Connector turns the app into a universal remote control for the TV, cable or satellite box, DVD, home theatre and more. The Connector can be purchased directly from the app or at online via TubeTime.
TV show producers, sponsors and networks alike can access the Tubetime platform to deliver customized interactivity in real-time, directly to their audiences. The Tubetime platform delivers targeted second screen experiences that can be deployed rapidly while offering flexible creative options. The platform removes expensive technology investments and accelerates time to market, allowing the industry to focus on creating great TV experiences.
Commenting on the launch of Tubetime, Marc Belanger, CEO of Tubetime, said: “As a growing percentage of TV watching now also includes second screen experiences on mobile devices such as interactions with Twitter and Facebook and directly with the shows, we saw a need to create an easy-to-use, all-in-one, fully connected gateway. Tubetime delivers a TV experience which is highly social and opens up new interactivity possibilities with TV shows.”
The Tubetime App is available for free from the App Store and will soon be available for Android.
