BuddyTV Guide, the free mobile channel guide and social TV app from BuddyTV, is taking the pain out of finding out when the best Olympic events are airing and what channel to find them on with its "Winter Olympics" Vibe. The app's new Vibe can be found on the home screen and provides a complete list of events for the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics. Vibes are completely customizable so users can view all the upcoming athletic events and select them based on their personal interests. This enables viewers to find what they want to watch more efficiently.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


The Winter Games are airing on five different channels this year during the day, prime time and late at night. Scrolling up and down a traditional grid to find an event to watch is time consuming and frustrating for users. The new "Winter Olympics" Vibe solves this problem by including every event of the 2014 Sochi Olympics that will be airing on television, surfacing the most recent airing first. With a single tap, the 'Winter Olympics" Vibe provides users with airing and channel information.  Users can dive in deeper as they tap on the listed events like figure skating or snowboarding for a more personalized experience.

The BuddyTV Guide app allows users to tap through to their favorite sports including figure skating, hockey, cross-country skiing and more to filter out the clutter. By simply taping on the sport, users can pin it to their home page so they can spend less time searching and more time watching.

Interested in more than one sport? Not a problem. Users can pin as many curated Vibes as they want to their home page. Or they can create their own Vibe and add all of their favorite Olympic events to one list.

"It's never been easier to navigate the Olympics and find specific sports that you're interested in," said Andy Liu, BuddyTV CEO and co-founder. "This Vibe allows you to easily scroll through every event taking place over the next few weeks and keep track of your favorite Winter Games. From there, you have access to every event you could ever want to watch."
