Internet TV programming guide Clicker is rolling out a pair of apps that allow users to enhance their over-the-top Internet television viewing experience.
Clicker Social brings social discovery to Internet television by allowing people to discover, share, discuss, check-in to and earn recognition around their favorite shows and movies on Clicker, and third party sites.
The Clicker Mobile app for the iPhone and Android devices allows them to do it while on the go.
The launch of Clicker Social includes check-in buttons on partner sites ranging from PopSugar, to IGN, to Revision3, PBS and more. In addition, video platform providers Brightcove, Ooyala and thePlatform are integrating the Clicker Check-in button into their video players, extending the feature's reach to thousands of publishers' video content.
Fans will also be able to earn awards from launch partners including HBO, Paramount Digital Entertainment's The LXD, PBS, NCAA Vault, Crackle and more.
Los Angeles-based Clicker, which claims to be the "complete programming guide for the new era of Internet television," catalogs premium television shows, movies, Web originals, live events and music videos available on the Web, giving users a pretty solid view of what's available.
"Since day one our mission has been to help people discover what's available to watch, where to watch it, and what's worth watching in the new world of Internet television," said Jim Lanzone, CEO of Clicker. "Clicker Social now gives our users the tools to assist each other in the discovery process--all centered around our uniquely comprehensive, unbiased, and structured guide to online programming--while Clicker Mobile gives them the ability to connect with Clicker, and each other, from anywhere."
