    The viggle app is cool because they reward you for watching tv. They have teamed up with directv.

    http://www.viggle.com/?latest=viggle-and-directv-make-watching-television-even-more-rewarding

    Seem's pretty corny to me, but perhaps it is someones cup of tea.

    Looks like use a phone app to get points for watching TV, and eventually you can get enough for a free PPV movie coupon, $5 gift card, etc.

    $5 reward is around 7500 points, most "bonus" shows earn 100 points, not sure what you earn for 'regular viewing' but probably less.

    That's a whole lot of TV watching and phone app clicking to make $5, for someone like me, it would take months.

    It actually ads up quick since you can watch extra adds on the app which can give 75 points for a 30 second commercial.

    Ive been using Viggle since January got a total of $310 worth of Amazon gift cards.

    Viggle has changed alot since they launched in Jan. Started with 2 points per minute(now 1 point per minute), Viggle Live 25-200 points for each correct or incorrect(now 1-10 for correct or incorrect). Amazon had $5 gift cards for 2000 points now $25 gift cards for 62500 points. They added alot of Audio able check in channels since Jan. alot after the DirecTV deal. You can't manualy check into shows 1 hour or more(unless they are sports but not PPV Sports like WWE, TNA, UFC). They now have a limit of points you can get a day 6000(TV points, bonus points, ad points, etc.) and a time limit 720 minutes/12 Hours) in 24 hours you can get points for watching TV.

    But I love the App, free money just for watching TV! So far the DirecTV bonus points have been for watching HBO/Showtime TV Series or Movies on the weekend(Boss, Weeds, a movie), & checking into a Sunday Ticket game. Hopefully like DirecTV does with GetGlue & Miso, I hope Viggle will have a app right on the DirecTV box where we can check into what we are watching w/o having to audio check in

    I still use it, it works good, just rewards are not updated often. I like only the Amazon cards and they sell out quick and seem to only be restocked every 6 months anymore. They always have Best Buy gift cards but there for online only. They have DirecTV PPV Movie rentals as a reward tho(I never picked one yet)

    I used it for about two months and got a free PPV coupon, which was mostly due to the free signup points that covered over half of it.

    So, it took me a couple months to earn half a PPV movie. BTW, after the order the coupon came in about 6 weeks, so not quick, but the credit to my account was very fast after I mailed it.

    Anyhow, I deleted the app, not work my effort for a free movie every 3-4 months.

    I've been using Viggle since September 2012 right around the time of the partnership with DirecTV, and I have over 114K points currently.
