MeeVee: A New Search Vertical for TV Listings

Yes, another new search vertical to blog about today.

It’s called MeeVee and allows the user to search a database of U.S. television listings and offers several other features. This AdWeek article offers details.

The service lets users comb through program schedules and includes a recommendation tool. The site supports searches via show titles, cast member names and various keywords. Burlingame, Calif.-based MeeVee relies on advertising for revenue.

An article in the San Francisco Business Journal has a bit more including details about a new deal with NBC that will provide preview clips to listings for NBC programs. The article also mentions that MeeVee was originally launched in 2000 as MyDTV.

I’m away at a conference this week so I haven’t much time to use the service. However, I plan to do a full review of MeeVee and look at how it compares to similar search services from the likes of Yahoo, TV Guide, and Zap2It, others.

Postscript: Choicesteam’s MyBestBets also provides a television program (U.S. only) recommendation tools.
