Matcha | Program Guide RE-IMAGINED

Matcha solves the problem of finding out where video content is streaming.

I've tried it this morning and like how you can filter the results for only those services you use, like Amazon Prime, Xfinity and iTunes.

You can also search for only TV, or only movies, and narrow down results by year, like "last year's movies"

Works for me.

Next up, seeing what the WATCH NOW - Amazon Rental Button does.

I want to send a movie to my TiVo via Amazon.

When you click WATCH NOW - Amazon Rental you are just sent over to Amazon.com to watch the movie in the standard way that you normally do.

Matcha adds their affiliate code to the link, so they make a few cents off the transaction.

Would be nice if there was a button to add movies to my Amazon Prime Wish List. In fact, Amazon needs to improve that feature on their own site.

Ex:
Hottest Index

Lost Remote explains:
"Matcha.tv, (is) a TV discovery site that enables users to discover content across Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon and Xfinity. By linking your Facebook, Netflix and Hulu accounts, Matcha can serve up intelligent cross-platform recommendations."
