Why use Thuuz Sports vs. other apps?

- We monitor the world for trending games and rate them all
- We provide more powerful personalization
- We tell you where to tune in
- We have unique alerting capabilities
What are Thuuz Ratings?
Thuuz uses ratings to make it easy for you to tell which games are most exciting. Using algorithms and social signals, Thuuz rates all live (and upcoming) games on a scale of 0-100. Thuuz even personalizes excitement ratings for fans of a team. If you see a fan finger next to a game or match, this signifies that the game includes one of your favorites.
||We adjust the excitement rating for every game featuring one of your favorite teams. We call it the fan finger. The adjustment is based on factors that might make the game more (or less) exciting for fans.
||An empty circle means an upcoming game with a predicted excitement rating. Giants playing the Dodgers? Celtics facing elimination? LeBron returning to Cleveland? Thuuz captures these X factors before the game even starts.
What platforms does Thuuz support?
We currently have both iOS and Android Apps. Our Android Apps include a version just for Google TV. You can also find our game ratings on several partner platforms, including the DISH Hopper, the latest TiVO apps and more.

How do alerts work on Google TV?
Thuuz Sports leverages Google TV's notification infrastructure. If you are watching TV, notification will flash on the screen for approximately 3 seconds and then fade away. A history of all notifications can be seen in Google TV's notification center. Unfortunately, Google TV does not allow us to customize how long a notification stays on your screen.
