Features for Television
CalReply’s television features are designed to automate the management of show meta-data and episode scheduling, while maximizing viewer engagement and tune-in.
Get your TV shows into viewer calendars
CalReply is a platform that enables TV networks, large and small, to add every episode of any show into viewer calendars so that viewers are reminded to tune-in to your content moments before it airs.
CalReply supports iOS, Android and Desktop calendar clients.
When a viewer adds a show to their calendar, they are prompted to enter their zip code and choose a TV provider. CalReply then populates every event reminder with the channel number of the show they are adding, according to their TV provider. When a viewer receives a reminder for a show, they know where to find it instantly.
Integrate CalReply On-Air
Add a short ‘Set Reminder URL’ to your on-air promotions and configure it to redirect to your SHOWS page. Enable viewers to discover and set reminders for all of your shows from a single page. LEARN MORE »
On average viewers set 2.3 reminders per engagement with the shows page.
Television Guide Integration
CalReply can automatically synchronize with any EPG data source. We integrate with third-party providers such as Gracenote, Rovi or we can build a custom integration into a proprietary data feed in any language.
We’ll also ensure repeat episodes are not added to viewer calendars even if your feed does not distinguish between new and repeat episodes.
Any changes to your EPG schedule will be reflected instantly across subscriber calendars, making CalReply a powerful and effective solution for driving tune-in.
Create stunning, responsive SmartCal pages in minutes
Import from TV guide
Import shows airing on your network from any EPG source. Events, descriptions, time-zone and image assets will be imported and kept up-to-date automatically.
Sync with a feed
Configure your account to sync with multiple channel feeds and shows automating the import and publish process entirely. This is useful if you want every show in your feed to appear as a published calendar with zero manual interaction.
You can always create show pages manually and style them up individually. If you are activating a one-off airing this is the easiest way to create your calendar pages.
Turn website visitors into calendar subscribers
Turn your website visitors into calendar subscribers by embedding CalReply subscribe buttons or linking to your calendar subscribe page across your digital properties. Subscribe buttons are perfect for schedule and fixture pages, TV guides and show pages.
