Viggle Inc. (NASDAQ:VGGL) (“Viggle”), the entertainment marketing and rewards platform, today announced the launch of the #FinallyFall Quest for the Best, a marketing and promotional campaign across its Wetpaint, Viggle app and NextGuide properties. The campaign will drive tune-in to this season’s buzzworthy new shows and returning favorites. At the end of the season, Viggle will crown the #FinallyFall winning show based on Viggle app check-in data.

Anchored in Viggle’s signature tune-in marketing tool – The TV Quest, where viewers earn bonus points for checking into shows over a fixed period of time – Viggle creates a fully integrated and interactive marketing campaign around live TV. There will be multiple TV Quests during the season and participants will receive bonus points for checking into any of the shows included in the Quests, with extra bonus points awarded for completing each Quest. All points can be redeemed for digital entertainment downloads, gift cards, electronics and more. Viggle’s show reminders will now also include the ability to send reminders via text, in addition to standard email reminders, so users never miss a bonus point opportunity.

This multi-platform campaign combines the Viggle app’s best-in-class ability to drive tune-in, set show reminders, and Wetpaint’s wide reach and trusted voice in TV. #FinallyFall positions Viggle Inc. as a leader in promoting live TV viewing and helps consumers decide what to watch. Check-ins from Viggle users will also be used to signify votes for the top TV show of the fall season. Once the campaign is completed, Viggle will announce the new or returning series that was the show of the season.

“Viggle is bringing back the urgency to watching Fall TV live by creating a fun, social and rewarding TV viewing experience for entertainment fans with original content, Quests, live trivia, celebrity tie-ins, prizes and rewards,” said Rosie Amodio, SVP of Content & Programming. “This program shows how content can drive deep engagement and verified tune-in by leveraging the Viggle Platform.”

Celebrity participants including former The Voice contestants The Shield Brothers, Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea, Fan-grammers (fans on Instagram), and other social influencers are already starting to take notice and will be checking into #FinallyFall programming. The Shield Brothers tweeted “The Voice and Viggle #FinallyFall… into place! We’re on it! Can’t wait to check in on premiere night.” #FinallyFall Quest for the Best starts Monday, September 22 with the season premiere of The Voice.
