Viggle Schedule for 5/16

16 May

Are you guys staying up and getting all the extra points at 11pm?  They offer a bunch of add at 11pm (when the reset for the following day).  Lately I have been getting 50pt 30 second adds for about 10 minutes, so I start the day with a few points under my belt!  At the bottom of the post you will find some general information that I have posted before, it will help answer any questions you might have!  Also, Viggle has added a new Sweepstakes, win 5 million points, and they also announced that they will be adding more exciting rewards (one being a Mac Air!)  Just checked the rewards, and WOW!!  3,700,000 points to get a MacBook Air, that is CRAZY!!!!

Q: Is Viggle available for Android?

A: Yes, it’s in beta. More information/signup at:

Q: Does Viggle have any social network sites?
A: Yes. They have a Twitter [], Facebook [], YouTube [] and Blog [].

Q: How can I contact Viggle Support?
A: Your best option is to contact them via e-mail at or send a Tweet to their Support Twitter []. You can also call 1-800-2VIGGLE!

Q: Where can I send my ideas or suggestions?
A: Send them via e-mail to!

Q: Can more than one person share a device?
A: Yes – you can have two accounts on the same device, but if Viggle senses any “unusual” activity, you will be flagged for review.


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: After I check in to a show, do I have to watch the whole show to receive credit?

A: No, you actually only need to watch enough to get checked in (unless it is a show with bonus points). You will get credit from the time you check-in until the show goes off or you check-in to a different show, even if you do not continue watching the show.

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 or eBay. Here’s an example of one: Menotek Mini iPod Microphone [].

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”
GOD TV – “Regional Missions Week”

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.


Q: How can I earn Viggle points?
A: You can earn points in the following ways:

  • Checking-in to TV shows (1 point per minute)
  • Watching ads or trailers (10, 15, 30, 50, 75 or 100 points)
  • Sharing check-ins on Twitter and/or Facebook (5 points per share)
  • 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: 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 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 6,000 points per day. The “day” resets at 12 AM Eastern each night. After this reset, you may begin earning again.

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!


Q: Do the prizes I win from instant wins and sweepstakes count towards the yearly $550 limit?

A: No, they do not!
