Advanced Television Premium Service

November 8, 2011

Digiguide TV has launched Premium, an online customisable TV guide aimed at busy TV fans who need a TV guide that they can tailor to their tastes and sends them only information on programmes they are interested in watching. Premium offers a mix of personalised recommendations, TV-related content, reminders, extended search functionality on their TV and film programme database, access to 30 days of advance listings and 14 days of historic listings, as well as social media integration which includes means to directly tweet along with the conversations on Twitter about specific programmes. The settings can also be synchronised with the Digiguide for iPhone app.

Keith Bedford, MD of Digiguide says: “Our research suggests that the current proliferation of TV channels and subsequent volume of available choice bamboozles TV fans when they are making viewing decisions. Premium is designed to help them create a personalised TV guide which covers only the channels and programmes they are interested in, as well as setting up reminders and alerts so they don’t miss the programmes that they love – all for less than 1p per day. We’re all spending more and more time online, we wanted to make it really easy for TV fans to keep track of what’s coming up on TV with a really simple, easy to use system which they can access at their desks, at home, or on a relevant device.”
