The Viggle App Makes TV More Rewarding




Recently, a friend introduced me to a new app for my iPhone called Viggle. Viggle makes TV more rewarding with chat, games, info on your favorite shows, and the chance to get real rewards – The app literally pays you to watch TV! The way Viggle works is similar in nature to how the popular music app Shazam works. Viggle listens to your TV and checks you into whatever show you’re watching. Watching the Broncos/Ravens game this Thursday? Check in with Viggle, and it’ll do the rest.

You just hit the center button, and for every minute you watch, you earn one point. You can also earn bonus points by watching ads and watching shows that Viggle recommends. Viggle also promotes programs with trivia questions about the show. While watching the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, I had to answer questions about Franco and the other celebrities on the show. Every point you earn adds up, and once you save up enough points, you can go on a Viggle shopping spree in their rewards catalog. Redeem your points for things like gift cards from iTunes, Best Buy or restaurants like Chili’s or Buffalo Wild Wings, or save up for their bigger rewards like Apple TV, Kindle Fire HD, or even a free cruise from Royal Caribbean (for 4 million points). You really can’t lose!


The Viggle app is available iOS and Android devices, and it’s free to download. So grab the app for your smartphone, and start racking up the points today. Who knows, you could be cruising to Europe for free..

Sounds like a sweet deal for being a couch potato!

    Viggle is pretty cool although the Viggle LIVE! feature can be a little glitchy if their server is bogged down.

    What’s to stop someone from just turning on the app and leaving it running next to a TV all day long just to accumulate points?

      You have to try to verify each show similar to how Shazam works and it only will let you check in for one show at a time.

    They definitely don’t have anything to prove that you are watching the show. I mean you could just check in each hour and go along your day. I checked in for the U.S. Open and maybe watched an hour of it, but I was checked in for about 6 hours total. Not a bad deal.

    Cool, I’ll definitely have to try this out, I watch so much TV as it is, I might as well get rewarded for it!
