Dijit collaborates with 11 TV networks to remind you to watch their shows

Dijit collaborates with 11 TV networks on new reminder feature

Say you’re surfing around online and come upon an interesting promo for a new TV show. You could stop what you’re doing, find the show on your DVR and hit record, but most likely you’ll just make yourself a little mental note to catch it later. The problem with mental notes, of course, is that they’re often forgotten. Dijit, however, aims to change that by collaborating with broadcast and cable TV networks to incorporate NextGuide-powered reminder buttons on their websites. The reminder buttons have been in testing since August, but the official rollout is today.

Eleven companies are on board so far, three of which are BBC America, Fox and truTV. If you go to one of the network’s show pages, you’ll see a “Remind Me” button with a small alarm clock icon. Click that, and you can sign up for an email or Facebook reminder that’ll arrive a half hour before the show airs. If you just don’t have the time to watch it then, the message’ll also have a one-click “record to DVR” option with participating providers (Comcast, DirecTV and Dish are the only ones for now). Of course, there’s nothing to remind you to hit the reminder button in the first place, so maybe make a, er, mental note of this going forward. Head past the break for the PR or hit the source for more info on how to sign up for the service.
