NextGuide Announces TV Network Partnerships

The TV guide startup Dijit is distancing itself from its rivals in the attempt to reinvent the TV guide. Dijit is the company behind the product NextGuide, which works as a watch list and library for TV shows and movies, with social second-screen integration built in. The platform is about to become even more robust, as NextGuide announced partnerships with Fox, BBC America, and truTV Friday, which will see the TV networks add a “remind me to watch” button on their websites. Upon clicking, users will be prompted to register for NextGuide, and will get reminders through the app. The reminder buttons are already on pages for more than 80 shows, and Dijit are already in the hunt for more media partners.
