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.
