Tunerfish is a fun and easy way to share what you're watching and discover shows, movies, and online videos. Have you ever found out about a new TV show by chatting with friends, or hearing people talk about a movie you saw a trailer for? Tunerfish is a community where this happens all the time, so you never have to sit there wondering if anything good is on.
With Tunerfish, you can easily tell your friends what you're watching and share the shows, movies, and videos you're passionate about. Just load up the Tunerfish iPhone or Android app or visit tunerfish.com, type in the name of the show or movie and hit "I'm watching now." By following friends and others with interesting taste, you can see what's popular right now among people you know and discover new favorites.
If you're watching an online video, paste the URL into the "What are you watching?" box on tunerfish.com, and we'll embed the video right on tunerfish.com.
We believe that people are a great source of recommendations about what to watch. Follow your friends to see what they've watched recently and what they're excited about. Follow people who have interesting taste or shared passions to discover cool stuff you wouldn't have found otherwise.
Whenever you visit Tunerfish, you'll see the latest activity from the people whose taste you trust in your feed, as well as what's popular across the Tunerfish network.
Trending is a quick snapshot of what people are watching right now. A glance at trending will let you know what's popular today.
If you can watch it, you can share it. Whether you're watching on TV, at the movie theater, online, or on iPhone or Android smartphone, you can share it using a Tunerfish app or the Tunerfish website.
The best way to find people you know is to connect Facebook and Twitter. We'll automatically connect you to your friends and the people you follow who are already on Tunerfish - and for those who aren't on Tunerfish yet, we'll connect you as they join.
Tunerfish is more than just connecting with friends - it's a community devoted to sharing what you love to watch. Some of the best recommendations come from people you might not know yet. Check out the profiles of people who've shared shows you love and made interesting comments, or people followed by people you follow. If their activity look interesting, just click that big green follow button to follow them. Don't be shy - the more people you follow, the more cool stuff you're likely to hear about.
Tunerfish awards are fun ways to display what you're passionate about, and you earn them based on your activity and what you've shared. There are awards for different levels of genres - for example, watching 5 Westerns, 10 online videos about kittens, 25 reality TV shows - and we also team up with networks and studios to create exclusive awards for exciting events like movie premieres and new shows. The awards you've earned are displayed proudly on your profile. We're constantly adding new awards, so follow us on Twitter (@tunerfish) or like us on Facebook (facebook.com/Tunerfish) to keep up with the latest.
P.S. There are also some awards that are so secret, we can't tell you about them - you'll have to discover them yourself!
Here's a hint: Check out the profiles of people who've won the award recently and see what they've been up to. You may even discover a new show, movie, or video along the way. And hey, not to remind you again, but are you following Tunerfish on Twitter (@tunerfish) and keeping up with us on Facebook (facebook.com/Tunerfish) yet?
Our goal is to make watching TV, movies, and videos fun. So whether you're sharing your favorites, learning about new ones, or discussing a hot new show, we've built Tunerfish to be fun and rewarding. Earn awards for your shares, gain influence when you inspire others to watch your pick, and bask in the reflected glow of your impeccable taste when other Tunerfish members like what you're watching and what you have to say about it. Tunerfish isn't so much a game as a community devoted to sharing your passions and making watching fun.
Influence is our way of letting you know when you've inspired someone else to watch a show, movie, or video. When another user sees what you've shared about a show, movie, or video and decides to watch too, we give you an influence point. As you earn more and more influence points, you'll get closer to advancing though influence levels, an indicator of your clout in the Tunerfish community.
Influence is not just about how many followers you have or how much you share - it's just our way of letting you show off how much others dig your picks.
Liking someone's activity is a quick way of saying, "I dig what you're up to." It could be that they've shared one of your favorite shows or that they've made a really funny or insightful comment, or maybe that they've revealed a guilty pleasure - like it to let them know you're tuned in to what they're laying down.
Tell the world how much you love Glee, The Sound of Music, or the Double Rainbow Song. You might not watch your favorite movie, show, or web video everyday, but becoming a fan lets you share your passion. When you become a fan of something, you'll also be listed as a fan on that show, movie, or video's page and it will show up front and center on your profile so people can get a quick view of what you love to watch.
We're still filling a few holes in the database. Let us know what's missing by shooting us a message at email@example.com or getsatisfaction.com/tunerfish and we'll get it added to the database. If you can pass along an IMDB or Wikipedia link for the movie or show, that would be awesome.
We don't always have the most complete data for everything in our database. If you see something that's missing a picture, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or getsatisfaction.com/tunerfish and we'll work to get one added.
We support online video from dozens of services, including YouTube, Vimeo, UStream, DailyMotion, and more. To share an online video, just copy the video's permalink into the "What are you watching?" box on tunerfish.com.
There are a few video sites we don't support yet. If you're watching a TV show or movie online, you can just search for that show or movie and share it. And if there's a site missing that you really want to see, let us know at email@example.com or at getsatisfaction.com/tunerfish.
The best way to invite friends is to share your Tunerfish activity to Facebook or Twitter. When your friends click on the link, they'll get to see a snapshot of what you've been up to on Tunerfish and an easy way to join.
Follow more people! Seeing who's a fan of your favorite shows is a great place to start.
First of all, Tunerfish will never post anything to Facebook or Twitter unless you explicitly choose to. Every time you share something, you'll have the option to share it to Facebook or Twitter.
If you haven't added Facebook or Twitter to your account, you can either add it by visiting your settings at tunerfish.com, or by hitting the "Configure" button as you're sharing on iPhone or Android.
You can share as much as you want, but Tunerfish is most useful when you share what you're actually watching. If you're sharing movies, shows, and videos so fast that it might not look like you're watching them, our system might think that you are a robot and try to stop you or slow you down. It's best to obey the system, because when it gets hungry, it eats robots.
Tunerfish is all about expressing your passion for what you watch, and we think it's most fun and useful when you share just what you're watching now.
We're excited to be building an API to allow 3rd party developers to integrate Tunerfish functionality into their applications, and can't wait to see what developers will build. If you're interested in beta access to our API, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a bit about what you're looking to build. We'll keep you in the loop for early access.
