BeeTV is coming out with a new iPad app designed to create more engaging, interactive experiences around TV. Like other social TV apps, BeeTV mixes a combination of checkins and social conversations online. But what sets it apart is its approach to recommendations.
Today on the Net: Cablevision is working on applications that could allow subscribers to watch video on their iPad and other mobile devices, Viacom’s profits surge in the second quarter and Comcast-owned social video firm Tunerfish releases its first mobile app on the iPhone.
Social TV site Tunerfish just pushed a redesign that is set to put more of a focus on helping users find trending shows and videos that their friends and others are watching, with changes to the way show pages are displayed on the site.
Comcast-owned social TV site Tunerfish is going live today, and it already has a major media company on board to help cross-promote the service. According to a media alert, cable programmer HBO has teamed up with Tunerfish to promote the season premiere of True Blood.
A new skunkworks project within Comcast dubbed Tunerfish is almost ready to launch with a new website and mobile applications aimed at using game mechanics to chart the social graph for video by enticing users to share what they’re watching with their friends.
