SideReel App a Must-Have for TV Fans Everywhere

All Media Network Launches Free TV Tracker iOS App for Viewers to Find, Track, and Watch TV Online

San Francisco, CA – All Media Network introduced their latest online discovery tool today with the release of the new SideReel iOS app. The free app lets TV fans keep on top of their favorite TV series, offering an easy way to find, track, and watch those series on iPhone or iPad.

With the shift in viewership from traditional TV to online, and the explosion of available online content in the past five years, SideReel serves as an easy guide through the crowded online TV landscape.

  • The online TV market has critical mass – 85.1% of the U.S. Internet audience viewed online video in January according to comScore (and that’s not including mobile, connected TVs or set-top boxes).
  • With over 27,000 shows and 100,000 episodes, SideReel offers a deep library of content for TV lovers, as well as the latest TV news, reviews and gossip.
  • SideReel complements such sites as Hulu and iTunes by directing users to those sites for their valued content.

Digital Entertainment Veterans Launch ‘All Media Network’ to Perfect Digital Media Discovery

AMN to Provide the Most Complete Guide to Digital Entertainment Anywhere via SideReel, Celebified, AllMusic, AllMovies & AllGames

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–All Media Network launched today with the mission to connect the world’s vast digital audience with the best music, movies, TV, celebrity, and games information available anywhere. With over 17 million monthly unique visitors and 118 million monthly page views across five web sites, All Media Network aims to be the most comprehensive and pervasive consumer entertainment guide of all time.

SideReel was founded in 2007 in San Francisco as a place to find and watch the shows people love online. It was extremely popular with the 18-25 year old demographic and was acquired by Rovi Corporation in 2011 as a complementary property to Rovi’s existing entertainment sites AllMusic, AllMovie, and AllGame. Since then, SideReel and the others have grown in popularity and scope and have added countless personalization and search functions. The group also added Celebified, a site for celebrity news and interviews, to the mix in 2012.

Rovi’s focus on the consumer-facing ventures changed over the past two years, and all of the original founders of SideReel, several Rovi insiders, and Ackrell Capital investor Mike Ackrell felt that there was an opportunity to liberate and unite all of the properties into one powerful entertainment discovery network, All Media Network. Laura Murphy, former consumer web director for Rovi, came over to All Media Network as President.

“As more content becomes available across platforms it’s important that people have a trusted, centralized source for discovery,” said Laura Murphy. “We’re excited to roll out new features and maximize the experience for users and advertisers as an independent, nimble network moving forward.”

“Media consumers need a simple way to find and access great content across the many platforms available today. It’s a massive opportunity and no one has seized it,” said Ackrell Capital’s Mike Ackrell. “All Media Network is well positioned to perfect digital discovery and I’m thrilled to be a part of the team.”

All Media Network provides resources for finding out more about the entertainment you love from these destination properties:

  • SideReel  Allows TV fans to find and track all of their favorite shows in one place.
  • AllMusic – The world’s most in-depth resource for news, reviews and information about albums, bands, musicians and songs.
