Q:what is the fastest way to increase my fandom level? is it better to keep checked into 1 show or checking into as many shows as you can during that hour. it seems like i have been on level 7 for a long time. i get my 500 point music bonus, watch as many ads as possible and try to get my 12 hour a day limit.
It’s up to you, really.
But the more activity you have in the app, the more it helps your Fandom level. For us, we keep checked into one show, in prime time until the next biggest point show comes up. We’re at Level 9, a bit over half way to 10.

Q:I attempted to check into my 20 songs tonight, but it says that I have already checked in to 20 songs today. Problem is, i haven't checked into any songs today, but I did last night at 11pm. Does being on the west coast make a difference?
A Viggle day is 12am-11:59pm ET. Adjust for your time zone. You’re still in the same day, which is why you’re getting +0.
Q:Do you know if you can get viggle on ipod touch? Thanks!
We had it on an iPod Touch last year. We assume the latest generation, and maybe the previous generation would handle it.
Q:How do I redeem an "Reward Spotlight" reward?
Wait until it shows up, then redeem it. It’ll show up on the main Rewards page, usually in the later afternoon-ish (like 3pm-6pm ET, but that’s not a guarantee - just a good guide). Check it often if it’s something you want.
Q:I've noticed with the Music check-ins it's only giving me points for 18 or 19 songs per day, but not 20. I'm definitely within Viggle's definition of a day, and since I'm going alphabetically through my iTunes songs, I know I'm not repeating a song. Have you noticed this or are you definitely getting all 20 every day?
Server Error Tip
Lately, some of you (including us once) have experienced a server issue, then when you try to check in to a show again, you realize you were already checked in.
So, as a tip: When you Confirm, and get a server error, just wait a minute. Check My Shows, and see if your show is there. If it’s not, wait a minute. Try force closing the app for 60 seconds, then restarting it, and checking My Shows again. (Even if you got the server error after tapping Confirm, you might still be checked in.)
Remember that once you check into another show (even if it’s the same show again), you’re officially done with the bonus attached. So checking back into the same show won’t keep your bonus going. Just as with the old system, once you’re out of the show, the bonus is over, and posted to your account.
So take your time, and let the system catch up to your app. We forfeited a bunch of points Sunday by being impatient and check into a football game a second time, trying to get it right. We realized we were already in, despite the server error. Learned that one the hard way.
Q:Have you asked your contact at Viggle about DVRed shows? I can only get it to work if I am within the 3 hour window of east coast to west coast time. Meaning if a show starts at 8pm est. time, I can only get an audio check-in on the DVRed show if I do it by 11pm est. Do you think it because they are still working the bugs out? Or do you think the 8am limit is a thing of the past? Thanks for the help
We’re assuming the problems with DVR’d show is related to the other problems they’re working out.
Viggle and Scripps Networks Interactive Partner to Create Second Screen Sponsorship and Content Opportunities for Scripps Advertisers - Yahoo Finance
Scripps Networks Interactive, whose lifestyle media brands include Food Network, HGTV and Travel Channel, has become the first programmer to offer the Viggle social platform to all Scripps advertisers. Viggle (VGGL), a free mobile app, provides an interactive platform to create engagement with entertainment content and targeted advertising through a loyalty program that rewards users for watching television. By working together, Scripps will be able to offer its advertisers innovative program enhancements and extensions, or mobile video inventory targeted against programming.
Auto manufacturer Lexus, in association with Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible,” was the first participating advertiser. Viggle users who checked in to “Restaurant Impossible” were able to view Lexus advertisements tied to what was running on-air. Lexus also had fixed placements on the “Restaurant Impossible” show page in Viggle, which allowed users to look at Lexus models while watching the show. Coinciding with the night of Lexus’ main integration in the program, Viggle hosted a Lexus-sponsored Viggle LIVE, allowing users to play along and answer trivia questions about the show, as well as brand recall questions tied to the on-air integration, all while earning points and rewards.
“We look forward to providing interactive and engaging experiences that benefit Scripps advertising partners and viewers by way of our entertainment rewards platform,” said Greg Consiglio, President and COO of Viggle. “Based on previous success partnering with other sales organizations, Viggle looks forward to providing opportunities that not only benefit Scripps on-air and digital partners but also engages viewers with popular interactive programs. For example, our real time trivia game, Viggle LIVE, provides a perfect forum for reinforcing key messaging as consumers use their devices during their favorite programs.”
Ninety-four percent of Scripps Networks’ C3 audience watches the programming and commercials live. Viggle extends that live viewing experience with enhanced content and play-along experiences that engage and reward consumers while creating new opportunities for Scripps advertising partners.
“The Viggle platform offers an impressive new tool for our advertisers to engage audiences who love our content,” said Beth Lawrence, executive vice president of digital ad sales, Scripps Networks Interactive. “The ability to target consumers across screens becomes ever more important as viewers turn to their mobile devices while watching television. We are excited to be able to offer this opportunity for our advertising partners to reach consumers in a new way.”
Launched in January 2012, Viggle is a free entertainment rewards platform whose app rewards its members for watching their favorite TV shows or discovering new music. Viggle enhances TV with interactive games like Viggle LIVE and the first ever real-time fantasy sports game, MYGUY. Viggle members get rewarded for their TV watching and music listening with real rewards, including electronics, trips, exclusive entertainment experiences, gift cards, and more. Viggle also allows like-minded fans of their favorite shows and artists to connect through Viggle social features. Viggle’s audio verification technology recognizes shows on TV and allows members to check into live and DVR’d TV content from more than 170 of the most popular broadcast and cable channels.

Q:First, THANKS for all you do to help make us better Vigglers, especially THANKS for the humor you inject into your answers/comments. HOWEVER, I have to agree with post you put up yesterday about someone else basically saying "Goodbye Viggle". The combination of abysmal recent upgrade, 50% lower point value for gift cards, completely unable to "confirm" gift card redemption, and 10 minutes availability of most gift cards is just too much. THANKS for all you have done, but sorry Viggle. BYE!
Thanks for the kind words.
And just so folks know, our Stitch gif wasn’t meant to be mean to the person, it was more of a visual way of saying bye, if they were really leaving Viggleland.
In the end, people will always gravitate to what suits them best, whether it’s Viggle, or Shopkick, or Swagbucks, or Angry Birds. Viggle feels the anger from its users, trust us on that one. There are some major flaws in the system they are facing daily to work through and get corrected. For us, we’re hanging on for a while. We’ve still redeemed for a Best Buy card or whatever in the past two weeks (okay one card, but still).
We’re not fans of the Reward Spotlight situation as it stands. We think Viggle needs to get on those vendor’s backs and get the gift cards in stock again. We don’t know how all that works, so who knows how long any of that takes, but Shopkick & Swagbucks are offering up the same gift cards like hotcakes, so not sure why Viggle can’t right now. Again, we don’t know all the inner workings of a business when it comes to things like that (ie: reward system). We also are hopeful that the spotlight thingamajig is temporary (although 3 months of temporary seems like an eternity sometimes), and that at some point soon, things will be ‘normal’ again.
Good luck, wherever you land.
Q:First thanks for all your help! Second, do you know what the daily GC spotlight will be today? I missed it if you already posted it.
Q:You guys are awesome! I still have problems when I try and check in manually (3 times and then type in the program). Especially during the day, it always says the server is busy. But I do have the most recently updated viggle (the music component is there). Do you think its still wrong viggle version or that I might just have super crappy service?
We’ve not tried a manual check-in lately, so we can’t really speak to it. Others we’ve seen on Twitter have manual issues, so we’ve been recommending audio check-in whenever possible.
Q:You are the best! Thanks for the heads up on the BB ad. And in general, THANKS for all your work, info, encouragement, keeping us informed. You make Viggling better.
Aww shucks, thanks!
