Yidio, the World’s Largest Independent Programming Guide, Announces Release of iPhone App

Yidio makes it easy to watch any TV show or movie on your iPhone

July 10th, 2013

San Francisco, California: Yidio (short for ‘Your Internet Video’) is the world’s largest independent programming guide with over 7 million monthly visitors and 3.5 million registered users. Today the company launches their new iPhone App, which brings the best-in-class search and filtering capability along with the world’s most comprehensive content library of over 1 million TV shows & movies to the iPhone.

The Yidio app allows consumers to search, browse and watch all free and subscription video apps from one simple interface, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, iTunes, Amazon Prime, HBO GO, Crackle, ABC, Disney and many more.   

“In a world where content is fragmented across providers and devices, deciding where you can watch a TV show or movie has never been more confusing. It’s exciting to give our millions of users the ability to quickly watch any TV show or movie available on their iPhone after so many years serving them on the web successfully” says Brandon Eatros, CEO & Co-Founder of Yidio.  “We believe we have finally cracked the code on making it extremely simple to discover and watch content across many different apps from a single location in the least amount of clicks.”



Yidio has taken a unique approach to content discovery with advanced filtering that is tailored specifically to each user’s preference.  Discovering new content is an extremely subjective topic that varies for each user.  "What we’ve done is empower our users with hundreds of different filtering options.  Want to watch a 1980’s comedy with a Tomatometer score of 50+ that is available on Netflix? We have you covered,” says Brandon.    

With the fastest and most intuitive interface, Yidio separates itself from other competitors because of their investment in accuracy and in providing a comprehensive content library. The company takes great pride in their proprietary database.

“We have discovered that watching TV and movies online is a very personal experience, so we created a new approach to social entertainment.  With optional one-click Facebook connect, our users can instantly set up their favorites, share or recommend specific shows or movies, as well as view what their friends are watching," said Brandon.

Yidio allows users to easily personalize their entertainment profile in the cloud and to set their preferences of providers and favorites. Once a profile is complete, the entire app will be personalized specifically for that user. Users can also create custom “presets” that make it easy to access saved filter preferences at anytime.
