Tubetime’s interactive program guide extends the TV experience before, during and after the user’s favourite shows.

By customizing their TV guide with favourites and setting reminders, users will never miss their must-see shows. Following and participating in the Twitter conversation around what’s on TV is simplified as hashtags for each program are integrated in the app as is sharing on Facebook, seeing what friends are liking 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 related to 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 from TubeTime [5]. The Connector works with both Apple and Android devices.

TV show producers, advertisers and networks alike can access the Tubetime platform to deliver customized interactivity in real-time, directly to their audiences.
