Getting Second-Screen TV Experience with Social Features

In a move to give DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) customers the power to check-in and connect with their favorite TV shows, movies and sporting events, DISH incorporated features from social TV service GetGlue into its second-screen app for iPad, DISH Explorer.

The update is available for immediate download. This integration allows DISH Explorer users to interact with the GetGlue users.

GetGlue’s media feed tracks real-time activity for approximately 35,000 shows and 50,000 movies and current sporting events.

Information within the media feed includes a mix of official and fan-generated programming content including pictures, comments, videos, recaps and tweets.

“Now, DISH subscribers can use GetGlue to share what they are watching and consume curated content from GetGlue show feeds directly within Dish Explorer. This will enhance the Dish Explorer app with official and fan-generated multimedia,” said Evan Krauss, president of GetGlue.

Additionally, GetGlue’s integration with DISH Explorer allows users to earn rewards from various entertainment partners when they check-in to shows. GetGlue check-ins within DISH Explorer can also automatically populate to a user’s Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Social media users regularly check-in to restaurants and venues to show their friends what they’re up to, and the beauty of integrating GetGlue is it takes this concept into the world of television,” said Vivek Khemka, senior vice president of product at DISH.
