Not so long ago, the GetGlue brand name and app was considered one of the most promising social TV platforms. Now, their new owners i.TV are continuing to announce radical changes to the brand. The GetGlue brand name is going away and the new platform, tvtag “launches Tues from i.TV, with 70 TV networks including NBC, ABC and FOX on-board as well as Nintendo and DIRECTV, and upwards of 10 mil users baked in from the beginning.” Here’s the announcement.
Next week, there will be some major updates to GetGlue and we wanted you to be the first to know.
As many of you are aware, this update has been a long time coming. In fact, when GetGlue joined i.TV in November, one of the reasons we were all so excited about both companies coming together is that both teams shared a vision for how to make watching TV more fun and interesting. The update to GetGlue you’ll see next week is a culmination of a lot of hard work and your feedback. We can’t wait to share it with you!
Here’s what you’ll see:
GetGlue will now be known as tvtag
The app icon and brand colors will change from blue to red
In response to your feedback, we will incorporate a ton of new features we can’t wait for you to try out
Thanks for all your support. We look forward to watching TV with you for many years to come!
The GetGlue Team
