#BREAKING: SideReel launches personalized news!
Want to be the first to know what’s happening with your favorite shows? Check out your own personal SideReel News page! There, you’ll find everything you’ve ever wanted: a mini-tracker, the latest cancellation buzz, articles from our editorial staff, premieres and finales for shows you’re tracking, and video news tailored just for you. Want updates from around the entertainment web? Just scroll down to the bottom for updates on casting, production, and spoilers.
Our SideReel community members have been pretty busy reviewing shows lately, so we wanted to make sure the most helpful opinions are being shown first—and we realized that no one is more qualified to make that decision than YOU! That’s why we’re psyched to introduce our new “Thumbs Up” feature! If you see a review that you think captures the essence of why someone should (or shouldn’t bother!) watching a show, give it your seal of approval by giving it a thumbs up. The reviews with the most up-votes will display first on the Reviews page and will also appear on the main show page!
And we didn’t stop at reviews—we also added this feature to SideReel Lists!
Remember, the more quality reviews and lists you create, the more love you’ll get from other community members! We rely on you to make sure the best stuff on SideReel gets seen, so go ahead, give your favorites a thumbs up!
You’ve been rating and reviewing up a storm since we introduced those features earlier this year, so we hope you love the enhancements we’ve just added to them. You can now keep track of all of your show ratings and reviews right from your profile page!
Looking for shows you’ve rated 3 1/2 stars and above? Use the slider to limit or expand your view. Changed your mind on a series since you wrote your review? Go ahead and edit it without leaving the page.
Wondering what other SideReel Community Members think? Head over to anyone’s profile page for their opinions—you might even get inspired to track something they recommend!
We’re always looking for ways to give you your ideal SideReel experience, so don’t hesitate to tell us what you think about these (and any other) features here in the comments, or on our Facebook, Twitter, and support pages.
Your recommendations are based on how you interact with SideReel—so the more you track and rate shows, the more accurate our suggestions can be! Already have an opinion on something we think you might like? Track or rate it and refresh the page to get a whole new batch of shows!
We hope you love everything these new features have to offer, and we’re always looking for your feedback. Let us know what you think about SideReel Recommendations on our Facebook, Twitter, and support pages, or sound off right here in the comments.
Looking for something new to watch? Check out our totally redesigned genre pages! We’ve completely reimagined our discovery pages to include new categories, sub-categories, and dynamic suggestions! We’ve even integrated your star ratings of shows with our new pages, so that the Top 10 lists in each genre come from yours and other ‘Reelers top choices! After all, who better to make recommendations than TV power watchers?
Speaking of star ratings, we’re also thrilled to introduce a new set of badges for those who are taking the time to rate shows! Whether you’re a Rating Newbie, are ready to step up on to the podium as a Rating Champ, or have graduated up to the level of TV Appraiser, we want to reward you for making a difference to our site. Thanks for continuing to be awesome!
Let us know what you want to see happen with the site! Leave a note on Facebook, Twitter, or Get Satisfaction, or email us at email@example.com!
We know you love watching TV and we thought it was high time you got rewarded for it. Its our opinion that watching a series is an accomplishment worthy of congratulation—and keeping track of multiple shows only increases the degree of difficulty. That’s why we’re proud to introduce SideReel Badges, which reward you for both tracking shows and marking episodes as watched.
It’s simple: the more you watch, the more badges you earn! We’re proud of you whether you’ve tracked one show or 100, five episodes or 500! Find your own level, from Tracking Newbie up to Show Runner. Go from Pilot to Power Watcher! To find out which badges you’ve earned, you can check out the right hand side of your Tracker or profile pages. There, you’ll see the most recent badges you’ve earned in each category. Don’t forget to click “See More” to find all of the badges you’ve been awarded!
We’re your biggest fans, so we want you to be proud of your SideReel experience. Let us know your thoughts on Badges here in the comments or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re passionate about television here at SideReel, which is why we’re always looking for ways to make it easier to find what’s worth watching. It’s also why we’re proud to introduce you to our What’s New Tonight page! We’re making it simple to find out what you can look forward to in prime time when you’re not in the mood for reruns. We give you everything you need to know on one page—no more checking each show individually or scrolling hour-by-hour through your cable guide. With eight days worth of information available, you can find out if you missed anything last night and schedule your evenings for the rest of the week.
Want to make sure you plan your Game of Thrones finale viewing party for the right date? Don’t miss our enhanced Premieres & Finales Calendar!
