Find Something Great And Watch It!

With BuddyTV you WILL find something great to watch. But this is where we leave the competition in the dust. With BuddyTV you can:

• tune-in
• stream
• record
• control playback & navigation
• get reminders

BuddyTV Takes Personalization To A Whole New Level!

BuddyTV quickly adapts to your interests. With BuddyTV, you can personalize your interests using Vibes. Think of Vibes as really specific genres. Drama, Comedy, Horror, Sports. Huh?! That just doesn't cut it! Vibes are way cooler. BuddyTV lets you browse by Seattle Seahawks, Alabama Football, Redneck Reality TV Shows, Get Rich TV Shows, American Film Institute's Top 100 Movies, etc. Anything you can browse, you can pin & add to your Watchlist. BuddyTV has a vast library of Vibes. Or create your own. You can even share them.

Never Miss A Show With BuddyTV!

We'll send you reminders when your favorites are about to air. Even if you're not at home, schedule a DVR recording in just a few taps.

Add TV Shows, Movies, Sports Teams, Leagues, Colleges & Vibes to your Watchlist and we'll shoot you a reminder when they're about to air.

TV Listings On Steroids!

Buddy TV has powerful, customizable TV listings. You can filter by Favorite Stations and Genres. TV listings are available for all US Pay TV services as well as over-the-air.

Browse & Schedule Recordings On Your DVR!

BuddyTV allows you to remotely schedule recordings with major Pay TV services including Comcast, TWC, DirecTV, DISH, AT&T U-verse, etc.

When combined with our best in class TV & Movie discovery experience, you may never want to rent or buy a movie again! For example, browse our incredibly intuitive Movies Vibe for the most popular or highly rated upcoming movies in your TV lineup and record them to your DVR. Your DVR will be plum full of stuff you actually want to watch without having to use that prehistoric Pay TV provider interface.

BuddyTV Is TV Everywhere!

Don't have a Pay TV Subscription? No problem! BuddyTV works just as well with streaming services. Maybe better. ;^) BuddyTV includes popular streaming services such as HBO GO, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, iTunes, Amazon Instant, Crackle, MAX GO & Showtime. We're adding more services all the time.

Find something to watch and you can tune right into the App that provides it. With our DIAL support you can stream that content to any DIAL-enabled device in your house.

Throw Away That Clunky Remote!

BuddyTV Guide has remote control. BuddyTV works with a growing list of Pay TV and streaming devices including DISH Hopper, DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse, Samsung, LG, Roku, TiVo and Google TV.

Tap, tap, tap... and it's all configured and ready to go.
