NEW YORK, NY (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — TVHound LLC (www.TVHound.com) today announced the launch of their interactive online television guide that allows TV fans to “sniff out” when their favorite shows, stars, subjects and genres are on TV. TVHound™ will also send email to registered users to let fans know when future airtimes featuring their favorite search items become available.
“I came up with the idea for TVHound.com after missing Lance Armstrong’s appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show,” said Marc Siegel, Founder and President of TVHound LLC. “I’m a real Lance Armstrong fan, and I remember thinking after missing the show that I wished there was a service which could have alerted me to his appearance. And when I discovered there really wasn’t a service like this currently online, I developed TVHound.com.”
Visitors to the site can search for shows by star’s first or last names, show titles, genres or subjects. Airtimes appear immediately, along with links to information about the shows and stars. Once registered, TVHound.com users can enter up to seven search items. Whenever a search item is located in the TV listings, TVHound.com will send an e-mail alert letting the user know when and what channel to view and/or record. Search items can be changed at any time and, unlike TIVO and its many cousins, TVHound.com’s service is completely free.
“With conventional search engines, slow scrolling guides and cumbersome newspaper grids, looking for your favorite celebrities, subjects and shows can be an all day affair,” said Siegel. “Once you register with TVHound, his supersensitive nose will sniff out all the programs which are important to you. And what makes TVHound truly unique is that he fetches your search items so you can plan your evening viewing and/or recording while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea. With TVHound.com, you can unleash the full potential of your television experience by letting TVHound become your remote’s best friend.”
