Thuuz Sports on Google Glass
October 7, 2013
Thuuz Sports has announced the Glassware release of its popular Thuuz sports app. Thuuz is one of the first sports Glassware to be available on Google Glass. The new service is designed to alert Glass owners to trending games in their favourite sports as well as provide them with score updates for their favourite teams.
“Thuuz Sports was designed to help fans navigate the growing proliferation of sports programming and platforms,” said Warren Packard, CEO and Founder of Thuuz. “Today there’s an abundance of sports programming that fans can watch on TV, online or on their mobile device. Since Thuuz is already on smartphones, tablets and television sets, Glass was a natural extension for us to reach our TV-loving sports fans.”
The Thuuz Sports Glassware will be useful in two scenarios: one, for people who are mobile and want to track what’s going on with their favourite sports through their Glass; and two, for people who are at home watching TV or working around the house with their Glass and want to get alerted when to tune into an exciting game.
While most sports apps focus on providing information about favorite teams, Thuuz adds a new dimension to the sports fan’s experience. The Thuuz service uses algorithms to rate games and let fans know when to tune into trending games across all the leagues they follow so they never miss a great sports moment. TV providers, sports networks and consumer electronics companies also partner with Thuuz to help drive incremental viewership to their live sports programming.
