Introducing the Daily Personalized TV Reminder

Whether you’re a TV addict with hundreds of shows queued up on your DVR, a cord-cutter who only streams one or two shows as they appear on Hulu, or somewhere in-between mixing and matching American Idol live with the Daily Show on your DVR there are more ways than ever to watch your favorite TV shows.

Yidio has rolled out a new way to bring TV to you, in the form of a daily digest of your top TV today via email. Customized strictly to your favorite shows, you’ll know what’s on that day and night by checking your inbox.

Programming Discovery and Personalization at TV of Tomorrow

In this panel at the May TV of Tomorrow conference top innovators in TV programming discovery and technology talk about helping users navigate the fragmentation of rights, new devices, subscription services, and the impulsivity of TV anywhere.  Finding new shows to watch has been determined largely by recommendations by friends and trusted sources and yes, the onscreen programming guide.   Discovery is further complicated now to decide when and where to watch – on air, time shifted on DVR, catch-up streaming, premium on-demand viewing.

Moving forward, personalized recommendations, the personal TV guide, the personal “what to watch, now” will be how we find and watch. As we like to say “Bringing TV to You.”
