Popular TV check in app Get Glue just got much bigger. Direct TV was looking to join the new wave of social cultural check ins, and more specifically tv/movie checkins. They picked Get Glue to build their Social TV app for them.
The Smart TV app works similarly to the way Get Glue already functions. Users of the app, in this case Direct TV customers, can use their Direct TV remote to check in to what they’re watching, and share it with their friends. If a friend posts something on Social TV that their friends like their friends can use their remotes to login and check out the new show from the beginning.
