Yidio launches alerts, telling you when shows come online | TV Everywhere | Scoop.it
San Francisco-based online video directory Yidio is introducing content alerts today, pinging its users every time a new video from one of their favorite TV shows goes up. Alerts can be customized to include the airing of a show on TV and news about a certain show, and will be delivered via email, Facebook or Twitter. These new alerts are just one way for Yidio to compete with similar TV content directory offerings like Sidereel and Clicker, both of which were recently acquired by large players in this industry (Rovi and CBS Interactive, respectively). Yidio’s main differentiator has so far been a kind of digital currency dubbed Yidio Credits, which can be earned through participation in partner programs.
