MONTREAL, May 23, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Tubetime today announces the
launch of the Android version of its all-in-one TV app, now available
on Google Play. Tubetime delivers a unique second screen TV experience,
including a complete TV guide and universal remote features. A majority
of Canadian TV lovers can now enjoy Tubetime by downloading the free
app either on the App Store or Google Play.
Tubetime's interactive program guide extends the TV experience before,
during and after the user's favourite shows. The guide makes show
discovery intuitive through the search tool, category filters or by
seeing what is popular with other Tubetime users. 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 at www.Tubetime.com. 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. 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 Android launch of Tubetime, Marc Belanger, CEO of
Tubetime, said: "We are seeing rapid adoption across Canada since our
recent launch on the App Store, great user feedback and growing levels
of engagement on a daily basis. The launch of the Android version will
bring the second screen experience to a wider Canadian audience, making
Tubetime the must have TV app."
