BuddyTV Guide Launches New All-Inclusive Sports Quicklist, Streamlining Sports TV Discovery

BuddyTV Guide App adds all major sports to its TV listings, creating an easier and faster way for users to discover their favorite sporting events.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 07, 2012

Finding sports on TV has been a tough challenge for fans, scrolling through an old TV guide to the sports channels and many times missing non-traditional channels carrying live sports. To solve this problem, BuddyTV announced today that they are launching the newest and most exciting feature of their free BuddyTV Guide iOS app, a new sports discovery experience. In the BuddyTV Guide app's newest version, users will easily find listings from all popular sports including MLB, NFL, MLS, NBA, NHL, and more.

A new quicklist titled “Live Sports” will list upcoming sporting events on TV in chronological order to help users scan all the available live sports very quickly. The listings are shown up to 7 days in advance so users can plan ahead by setting alerts and reminders for future games. For sports fans, this is a must have app to avoid missing any big games.

“A common frustration for sports fans is discovering what games are on, if a game is being televised, or what channel is airing a particular game,” said Greg Marks, Director of Engineering for BuddyTV. “The sports quick list, and common icons make this experience easier by allowing the sports fan to quickly scan lists of everything airing in their lineup.”

The BuddyTV Guide app was initially launched in September 2010 with basic TV discovery tools. In early October 2012, BuddyTV launched an MLB Playoffs Quicklist, marking its first venture in the world of TV sports. For the first time, users had access to a concise list of Playoffs games with airing times and channel information. Now, with the recent addition of even more sports features to the app, BuddyTV Guide is making everything TV-related easier to navigate and discover.

BuddyTV is the #1 TV discovery app in the world. Users have the ability to use the app as a remote, reminder service, and even as a social outlet. The BuddyTV Guide 2.6.1 app is available for free in the app store on iTunes. To learn more, visit the BuddyTV Guide website for more details.
