TV Guides Idea of Taking Entertainment Mobile

By: IC

It seems the most technology related companies are going mobile, from those who offer news, stock quotes, music as MP3s, videos and now even TV guides. The company TV Guide which is recognized for providing up to the minute information about the upcoming TV programming through the internet, TV and magazine has now made the decision to go mobile.

Users with web-enabled mobile phones are now able to access more than just their email accounts but the entire schedule of TV programming right through their mobile devices, these changes are making mobile phones more and more appealing to users as time goes by. Long gone are the times when the phones where used strictly for voice communications, today we have a wide range of applications and uses for these devices which have taken communication to a whole new level. Some say this is yet one more reason to upgrade from old analog phones to web-ready digital mobile phones.

The new mobile TV Guide site provides a up to a 14 day look ahead at local programming, this basically means that you won't be out of the loop once your favorite show makes changes to it's schedule; it also is quite convenient for people who are constantly moving from one place to another and only have time to come back home to relax; with this mobile site users will be able to see what's on TV by the time they get home.

The site is also able to send text messages which remind subscribers about their favorite show schedule, besides the ability to see the entire line up 14 days ahead this new tool also provides entertainment breaking news, recaps of the previous night shows and recommendations for the current day, some people say that the only feature missing is the ability for the site or mobile to synchronize with our Tivo or PVR and automatically record our favorite shows while we are away (which is not a bad idea at all!)

The creation of a mobile site is definitively a great step taken by the company TV guide which will enrich mobile phone user's experiences and offers more tools which can be accessed on the go, mobile telephony has come far the last few years, it is very exciting to imagine what the next few years have in store for us.
