TV Guide Digital Debuts Redesigned TV App for Android
TV Guide Digital debuted Tuesday its redesigned one-stop TV app for Android, which allows fans to find, share and watch programs instantly – anytime, anywhere.
TV Guide has already introduced apps for Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This is said to be the most significant redesign for the Android app since it launched in 2010.
The hottest new feature in the Android redesign is TV Guide’s Watchlist, a personalized profile that makes it easy to find all the ways to watch.
TV Guide users’ top Watchlist picks have predicted the season’s top new shows for consecutive seasons, with “Revolution” and “The Following” tracking to the #1 spots in September and January, respectively.

When fans add shows, sports teams, actors and movies to their Watchlist, it shows them on a single screen all the ways to watch — on TV, on demand, streaming and DVD.
In the Android app, fans can instantly link to apps for HBO GO, Hulu Plus, The CW, MAX GO and Crackle to watch their favorites. Additional video sources will be added during the next few weeks.
Other new features include New Tonight Trending, a social hot list based on what TV Guide users are watching, plus Watchlist filters for News, which show users only their favorites.
The new TV Guide Android App is available on Google Play. The TV Guide iOS App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
TV Guide Digital, which includes TVGuide.com, is a CBS Corporation / Lionsgate partnership.
