How to Use the GetGlue Watch Guide

by Nancy on September 16, 2013 · Comments

With our newly released updates for Android and iPhone, we’ve made it simpler to find what to watch on TV, streaming, or in movie theaters. From the Watch section of the app, you can see what’s Now On TV, New On Streaming, and Now in Theaters. If there’s a specific show, movie, or sports team you’re interested in, you can tap Search & Discover to type in exactly what you’re looking for. You can also post what you’re watching, comment, share to social media, and paste a link to an image or video via the icon on the upper righthand corner of the screen.

Search & Discover

Search & Discover

The new and colorful Search & Discover section is an easy way to browse by genre and curated lists. From here, you can access shows and movies your friends like, what’s trending, genre lists, fun lists, and more.

Now On TV

Now On TV

Focused on real-time viewing, the Now On TV section shows what’s best for you on TV right now, based on the shows you like and ones we think you will. Tap on the show tiles here to find channel information, post a comment or fun link, learn more about the show, and watch new or past episodes on any of your favorite services, such as Amazon Instant, iTunes, Netflix, and Hulu.

Now On TV lists

From this section, you can also tap on More On TV to access more TV shows that are on tonight. See what your friends are watching when you tap on Friends’ Shows, and find out what shows are currently popular on GetGlue via the Trending Shows tile.

You can see what’s coming up next by tapping Next on TV, and, for you primetime TV junkies, you can take a look at what’s playing on primetime later tonight. Just tap the Primetime tile.

New On Streaming

New On Streaming

From the Watch guide, you can also quickly see what’s new on streaming, and similar to the tiles in the top of the guide, you can tap any of these to watch your selection on a number of streaming services, post a comment or link, and get additional info about the selected show or movie. You can also select the bottom right of the tile to add the show or movie to your  Want to Watch list, which you can access easily from the Search & Discover section.

TV Lists

Here, you can also see TV Lists, which organize content by mood or genre. So if you’re in the mood to binge-watch, you can tap Binge and we’ll deliver a curated, alphabetical list of shows. Other lists include Make Me Cry, Make Me Think and Thrill Me, among others.

New On Streaming, TV Lists and Episode Catch-Up

Our Movie Genre lists are another handy way to find and watch exactly what you’re in the mood for. And when you’ve fallen behind on your favorite TV shows, you can tap on Episode Catch-Up to see, play, and post about all of the newest episodes.

Now In Theaters

Now In Theaters

When you’re getting ready to go to the movies, take a look at Now In Theaters. Here we surface the newest, most relevant films to you, based on your likes and past posts you’ve made on GetGlue. Don’t have time to catch it in the theater? Tapping Want to Watch will add it to your Want to Watch list and send you a reminder when it’s out on streaming. If you’re looking to see a movie tonight, you can buy tickets as well.

Later On TV

Later on TV, Next 7 Days, and beyond

As you scroll towards the bottom, you get a bird’s eye view of the best stuff playing tomorrow, this week, and the next few months. This way, you can plan to watch your favorite show, premieres, finales, and never miss a major live TV event.

We hope you’ll enjoy using the Watch guide. Please let us know if you have any questions in the comments below, or email
