CHECKING IN TO TV SHOWS

Q: When can I check-in to a show?

A: You can check into a show at any time during the program, EXCEPT within the last 5 minutes of its airing. You do not have to check in when the show first starts.

Q: How do I receive points for checking in to a show?

A: Once you are checked into a show, you will receive points for the time you watched the show. Viggle assumes you watch until the end.

Q: How long will I receive points for watching?

A: You will continue earning points until: a) the show ends or b) you check in to another show.

Q: After I check in to a show, do I have to leave the app open?

A: No.

Q: What are “Featured Shows”?

A: The shows on the “Featured Shows carousel” are shows worth bonus points. In order to earn these, you MUST remain checked in to that show for at least 10 minutes. You may only earn these bonus points for one check in, regardless of whether you watch the show live or recorded. If you check out of the show after 10+ minutes, you won’t get a pop-up notification telling you that you’ve earned the points, but your point balance will increase with bonus (you may need to refresh your point total).

Q: What about DVRed shows
?
A: Viggle can recognize recorded content, but may not always be able to do so. Shows that are not live CANNOT be manually checked into. DVRed shows also qualify for “Featured Show” bonus points (but remember, you are only eligible for “Featured Show” bonuses once, regardless of how many times you check in).

Q: What about shows on channels I don’t subscribe to?

A: You can still check into these shows manually.

Q: Viggle doesn’t seem to be listening to my TV!

A: In order for Viggle to listen to your TV (and check you in to the show), you need a microphone. If using an early generation iPod, you HAVE to have an EXTERNAL MICROPHONE in order for Viggle to HEAR your TV! Newer generation iPods have built in mics.

Q: I don’t have a built- in microphone! Where can I purchase an external mic.?
A: You can find inexpensive microphones that plug into the headphone jack on Amazon.com or eBay. Here’s an example of one: Menotek Mini iPod Microphone [amazon.com].

Q: Are there any limits on the amount of shows I can check into?
A: You may only check into and earn points for a MAXIMUM of 12 hours of television programming per day. The “day” resets at 12 AM Eastern each night. After this reset, you may begin watching and earning again.

Q: When will I get the points for a show that runs across the daily reset (e.g. 11pm to 1am EST)?
A: You’d be getting all the points as well as any bonus points for that show on the second next day. You only get points after the show ends or you check into something else, and there is no partial credit for the hour of TV watched on the previous day. If you’re looking for the points to credit on the first day, make sure you check into another show at least one minute before the reset (e.g. 11:59 pm).

Q: Are there any shows with long running times to check in to?
A: Yes – but remember these shows still count to your 12-hour limit:

CSPAN – “U.S. Senate”
CSPAN – “U.S. House of Representatives”
CSPAN – “Today in Washington”
NBA League Pass – “NBA League Wide”
NHL Center Ice – “NHL Center Ice”
Tennis Channel – various tennis opens
NBC – “Today”
FOX News – “FOX and Friends”

Q: Sometimes I’m kicked out of a long-running show before it’s over?
A: Occasionally Viggle does kick users out of long running shows. However, it might be an issue with how long Viggle thinks the program actually lasts. Viggle may divvy a long-running show into short segments and check you out after one of these segments. Even though some cable box guides list some long running shows in one large, 6-8 hour block, Viggle thinks they’re actually just hour-long shows strung together. (Capitol Hearings and Book TV, for example). For help in deciding whether program actually last 6-8 hours, you need to look at the show info/description. You should see an actual time in parentheses at the end of the program description. So, if you’re checking into a CSPAN show, for example, you need to make sure the actual time is (480 mins) or over.

POINTS

Q: How can I earn Viggle points?
A: You can earn points in the following ways: checking-in to TV shows (2 points per minute), watching ads or trailers (15, 30, 50, 75 or 100 points), sharing check-ins on Twitter and/or Facebook (5 points per share) and participating in special events, such as Viggle LIVE (point amounts vary by event).

Q: I can’t re-watch the ads in the “featured show carousel”. Why?

A: After viewing a featured ad and the checkmark appears, click on the Whats On button. The ad will refresh (checkmark removed) and you can play again.

Q: How many points can I earn from watching ads?
A: The following table shows how many points you can theoretically earn from watching the specified ads for varying durations:

1 minute 5 minutes 10 minutes
———————— ———————— ———————— ————————
75 points (30s) 150 points 750 points 1500 points
30 points (15s) 120 points 600 points 1200 points
100 points (60s) 100 points 500 points 1000 points
15 points (15s) 60 points 300 points 600 points
30 points (30s) 60 points 300 points 600 points
50 points (60s) 50 points 250 points 500 points
15 points (30s) 30 points 150 points 300 points
50 points (120s) 25 points 125 points 250 points

Q: When are the “best ads” available to watch for points?
A: Although ads are available to watch throughout the day, the better “point to time spent ratio” ads reset at 8 PM EST and Midnight EST. NOTE: This information is current as of 3/30/12, but may change at any time.

Q: My points appear to be lagging or not crediting.
A: Lag occurs regularly, especially during peak hours (primetime, after reset). Your points will add later on. Occasionally ads might not credit at all, however, but this is not as common as lag. If it’s not a server lag, you can click on your points total to go to the profile page which usually updates the total. Or you can logoff and logon again which may also update the total.

Q: What should I do if I know an ad isn’t crediting properly?
A: You should report the issue by tweeting to @vigglesupport or sending an e-mail to support@viggle.com so that it can be corrected.

Q: Are there any limitations on the amount of points I can earn?
A: You can earn a MAXIMUM of 12,000 points per day. The “day” resets at 12 AM Eastern each night. After this reset, you may begin earning again. (As of 3/28/2012, Viggle does NOT give you any notifications when you max out 12,000 points for that day. You need to keep track on all the points by yourself.)

Q: Am I notified when I reach the daily point limit?
A: No! Once you reach the daily point limit, your points will stop increasing. You should record how many points you start with each day so you’ll know when you’ve maxed out.

Q: Is this point limit ever raised?
A: According to Viggle: “We’ll often raise the daily points-earning limits during promotions and Viggle Live events. We’ll be sure to let you know in advance through Twitter and Facebook.”

Q: How can I turn off point popup notifications?

A: See how to do so HERE!
