Get rewards for watching TV with Viggle for Verizon Wireless Android devices
Verizon Wireless and Viggle have announced the release of Viggle for Android. Viggle is a new service that rewards users points for watching TV shows and playing games. By holding your device up to the TV, the app will “discover” what you are watching and then “check in.” Viggle points are earned for checking in, playing games, and interacting with special branded media. You can also share what you are watching with others.
The reward points you earn can be used for a variety of prizes like movie tickets, music, wireless accessories, or even charitable donations. Now would be a real good time to start using the service as Viggle is currently doing a daily 1 million point giveaway to celebrate the launch. Viggle members will be automatically entered into the giveaway when ever they check into a TV show during the promotion.
Verizon customers can download Viggle from either Verizon’s App Store or Google’s Play Store today.
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and NEW YORK – Revolutionizing mobile entertainment, Viggle Inc., and Verizon Wireless today announced that ViggleSM, the popular rewards-based loyalty program for television, is now available to Verizon Wireless customers with Android™ devices. To celebrate the launch on the Verizon Wireless network, Viggle announced a daily 1 million point giveaway.
Viggle transforms the television viewing experience by allowing users to accumulate points by checking into the television shows they’re watching, playing games and puzzles about their favorite TV shows and interacting with special branded media. Customers can then use Viggle points on a wide array of rewards such as movie tickets, gift cards, wireless accessories, music and more, and they can also convert points into charitable donations.
“Viggle is another way Verizon Wireless customers can experience the power of 4G LTE, which delivers video and other information faster and smoother than before,” said Ed Ruth, director, new market development/business development, Verizon Wireless. “Viggle’s rewards-based loyalty program provides a valuable interactive mobile experience for our customers, allowing them to look at television in a whole new way.”
“Working with Verizon Wireless lets us share Viggle with a broader audience across a variety of platforms,” said Greg Consiglio, senior vice president, business development at Viggle. “We’ve seen a lot of excitement around the ways the app adds to the television viewing experience for consumers, and we’re excited to expand to Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Android subscribers so they can further enjoy their mobile devices.”
Verizon Wireless customers can download Viggle on a wide range of smartphones and tablets from Verizon Apps, Verizon Wireless’ mobile storefront, and Google Play. There is no charge to download the app, but a Verizon Wireless data plan is required and usage may count toward a customer’s data allowance.
Viggle members will be automatically entered into the daily 1 million point giveaway and will automatically receive an entry when they check into a TV show during the promotion. For more information, please visit http://www.viggle.com/index.php/june-21-million-points-a-day-sweeps/.
