Despite a huge increase in the number of people who view things online and a similarly large rise in internet piracy, television has not yet sounded a death knell that many in many within both the television and internet industries a few years ago predicted would happen.
Series such as Game of Thrones, Dexter, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who; the list is endless; all have enormous, established followings; fans who are always hungry for that extra titbit of character or plot information. As such, many apps have been developed that foster TV show fandom. Here are some of our favourites.
The definitive movie and TV database has been around for quite a while now, but has recently released a mobile app so screen lovers can keep up to date on all of their favourite films and shows wherever they are! Cast lists, trivia, biographies, TV listings, recaps and entertainment news posts are all provided in IMDb’s excellent little app, and every last bit of it is free to download and peruse!
For those that love watching sports on their TV sets, Coral’s Mobile app is a must-have resource. Users can keep tabs on odds, player information and all the important sports news, all from their mobile device. Sports programming is also included in the app, with all the fixture times displayed for users and there’s even sports such as horse racing available on live stream channels! You’ll never need to buy a copy of The Sunday Sport ever again!
A Game of Thrones Guide
Game of Thrones, the medieval fantasy series that has taken audiences of all colours by scruff of the neck, taught them an incantation or two, then set them free- each now a fan- to prosthelytize the show to everyone they know!
That might be annoying if the show wasn’t all that great, but to find a series that often reaches, if not exceeds, the production quality of the Lord of the Rings trilogy is a seldom seen thing. A Game of Thrones Guide helps Throners in between the awful period between airings, providing in depth information on this stellar series.
The Walking Dead Wikipedia
Zombie hordes have always had that particular draw among film and TV fans and The Walking Dead, combining decomposing flesh with deft storytelling and very talented actors, has similarly fostered quite the cult following. The Walking Dead Wikipedia is a must for fans; information on all of the characters, locations, episodes and plotlines is provided!
