Tunerfish believes that “the line between TV and the Internet is blurring and will eventually be erased.” The site is, of course, onto something. From Hulu upgrades to rumors of a new and improved Apple TV, the television tides are turning. Not only do we want what we want now, we also want to know what we oughta be wanting in the first place.
Tunerfish.com aims to help users stumble upon cool programming that they might have otherwise missed by it easy to see what your friends are watching and loving. Basically, you can stay in the loop and not miss out on a show that isn’t necessarily primetime billing but is all the rage amongst your friends with good taste. It sounds like it’s kinda improving on the Pandora or suggested YouTube video model by linking recommended titles through friends in your already established social network. In other words, no more wasting time watching trash — unless it’s the sort of trash your buddies are really into. Sorta love this.
I see some Facebook Events for viewing parties right around the corner.
