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.

(4★) Good app to keep track of tv.
This app will tell you when shows you want to see will be on tv or some app. Just add shows that you want to see on it. It also
has a tv schedule. It's good for a free app.

(2★) What happened?
This app used to be pretty awesome. Yeah, it would crash on launch once in a while, but it worked. Now, for some reason, it shows
the channel list, but only maybe two channels eventually show a lineup
(4★) Remote1
Great app. The phone is usually handier than the tv remote. Love the ability to set my own TV fav list and the ability to check
shows without having to channel surf.
Jul 04
(2★) Sometimes it works
Sometimes it shows listings; sometimes they're blank. Glad I don't need to log in to use it, but what's to use when there are no
listings? On iPad Air 2.

(5★) Good or not
It sounds good so I'll try it if its bad I'm done
(5★) A lot like AOL TV, only better
I was a big AOL TV fan, because of its localization and customization features. AOL TV seems to have gone away, forcing me to look
around, and Buddy TV jumped up as a response to a search for best TV

(5★) Good Guide
This app works very well as a TV guide (listing) or as a place to find movies and shows to watch on demand.
(5★) Super Awesome!
Only thing that is kinda poopy is that the volume doesn't work, but that might be user error. Also wish I could record without
having to sign up for that one program. Other than that, it's AWESOME!
Mar 29
(4★) Great app for big TV watchers
Take a while to get the hang of with the different setups to adjust the guide to what you like. But everything it offers for TV
watchers is great and efficient

(3★) Good not great
Good app, reliable but lacks the ability to provide more TV show information. The very brief show description is much too brief.
Replaced TV Guide with this app which was very good until recent update
(5★) I'm lovin it
I like the fact that it can alert me when my favorite tv shows are on and where I can watch it. It's all simple and easy. This
is the best thing IMO if you are a TVholic.

(5★) The best app ever made
This is a superb TV guide. This is a must have app and if you have smart tvIt is even better as it will turn your iPhone into a

This app does the job. I wish it would provide one with more details on programming and that it would allow you to have at least
two windows open (e.g. Cable, one antenna channels) simultaneously.
