New Episode Tracker For The Cord Cutter
Hello, hope I got the right place on this one. Hoping for some ideas or advice on finding an ios app (ipad) for identifying new shows posted and available for watching/streaming which integrates Hulu+ and the network online access/apps.
We are new cord cutters, day one without D* and we're looking for a way to manage what we've been accustomed through with the old "playlist" on the dvrs. We've got a channelmaster in the attic, about 40 miles outside of town (get about 30 OTA perfectly clear channels), plus hulu+ and an apple tv for app access and screen mirroring from the ipad. We rarely watch live tv. What shows we do watch are on the OTA networks and hulu posts most of them online about 3 to 5 days after originally airing. Some of the network apps post them the next day, depending on the show. The Walking Dead is the only trouble spot with no app support, only watching via amc.com on a web browser, but the air play works great for that and can't miss the dead.
There are a number of ios apps that let you know when a show is broadcast & alerts you (TVTrakr, NextGuide), but it doesn't necessarily know when it's posted online for streaming so you have to keep checking the specific app or website. There are one or two which integrate with hulu and the network apps to alert you when it's online for streaming (TV Guide, Yidio), but no customization to have a running list to mark "watched" or delete like the old playlist did for series passes.
Anyone using anything combining both of them or ideas? Thanks in advance.
