Viggle is a downloadable app which promises to “make TV more rewarding” by giving people the ability to earn points which they can exchange into rewards just by watching their favorite television programs.
According to Viggle.com, this application works by allowing you to “check in” to your favorite TV shows – or any TV shows – while you’re watching. Once the app identifies the show you are watching, you will receive points.
At times, certain television shows will be featured and you will receive extra points when you watch them. They also offer a variety of extra features to help you earn even more points by interacting with the shows you watch.
Viggle LIVE provides you with interactive trivia, voting, and polls in relation to the shows you are watching, while MyGuy is a fantasy sports program which recognizes the teams playing when you check in. The better you do with your fantasy sports team, the more Viggle points you will earn.
Unfortunately this application is only available for members with Android and Apple phones, as well as currently running a promotion which offers bonus points to Viggle DirecTV members.
Once you have earned your points, you can exchange them for your rewards. These items include movie tickets and gift cards which they promise are for major, nationwide brand name companies, like Burger King, Old Navy, and Fandango. Or, if you prefer, they give you the option to transfer your points into a charitable donation.
Viggle Support has a page full of FAQs and tips to help their customers understand how to best use their app and avoid frustration and complaints. For example, if you mostly watch recorded programs, you can still receive credit for checking in to these programs, but those which were available on live TV and recorded within the last 7 days.

A waste thanks to horrible customer service!
Viggle was actually fun at first, and it's easy to participate.
When I attempted to redeem 39,000 points for an iTunes gift card, the 'reward code' they provided did not work.
I sent a message to Customer Service, 3 days later the response indicated I had probably not entered the code correctly. I double and triple-checked to be sure this was not the problem.
I advised them I had done exactly as instructed. I had no further word from them. No attempt to resolve this was received from them. Now over a week later, I will delete the app. and chalk this up to bad treatment by an app that doesn't meet it's stated purpose.
Viggle not worth my time
Firs to all, you check in to a tv show, but then if you get a text, do anything else on the ipad, then go back to Viggle, you have to check in all over again, therefore even while watching the tv show you basically can't do anything else on your ipad while it's listening to your tv otherwise you lose points. I have enough points to get a Reward, yet most of the day there isn't 1 reward and wen there is, it's ONE reward for something I don't want.. Redbox is the popular one. There should be a choice. Plus the Reward is only up for a couple hours, then the Reward section is blank. Just not worth my time when I can't even use my ipad for anything else when checked int o viggle.
