Viggle is a loyalty program for people who watch television, it gives rewards for checking into the TV shows that you are watching. Available for Android, Apple iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, Viggle automatically identifies the television shows its users are watching and awards them points when they check-in.
*Viggle users can redeem their points in the app’s rewards catalog for items such as movie tickets, music, gift cards or they can convert them into charitable donations.
Viggle works by using the microphone on your device to listen in on the TV show or movie and gives you the option to share what you are watching with friends. Viggle’s basic integration is with Facebook and Twitter but telling Viggle what you’re watching is for your own personal gain.
You need to be a couch potato because the minimum amount of points needed to redeem a reward is 7,500, or approximately 60 hours of tv-watching. You can also get bonus points by tagging live TV shows, special events, or watching ads within the app.
