Thuuz For Google TV Lets You Know Whether or Not You Should Be Watching a Sports Game


If someone had to convince me to get a Google TV device with one application, Thuuz would be it. Thuuz, a  play on the word “enthusiast,” is a sports application for Google TV that delivers users an excitement rating for each game of each and every sport/league thewy cover .

They use a unique algorithm (which they won’t be revealing, of course) that comes up with a rating to deliver to your television letting you know whether or not you should waste time watching.

It comes up with a number on a scale from 0-100. And even if the ratings are a bit wonky sometimes they are always monitoring games and the excitement engine in real time to tweak things to near perfection.

The sports they support are MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, NCAA football and basketball, MLS and 5 European soccer leagues, cricket and rugby. What excites me even more is what’s in store for the future:

There’s still plenty of work ahead to add more sports, features and content, plus individual athlete excitement alerts for your favorite players.  We’ll also be building out the personal preferences, as we’ve learned that each fan has his/her own take on what makes a game exciting.

Thuuz is also available for Android phones so be sure to give that a shot as well. Find the Google TV version here and the phone/tablet version here. Oh, and it’s all free!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. If I had a nickel for every time I heard a startup/app say they have a “unique” rating system, I would have enough money for my own startup.  

  2. Just waiting on you logitech.

  3. Unless it’s an exceptional Superbowl commerical or tied inning 9 of game 7 of the World Series, my Google TV would always let me know that I shouldn’t bother watching… yawn… sports. :)

  4. I use the phone version of this app. It lets me see which games are worth watching/downloading from the past day or two, or see which upcoming games have hype. I follow soccer and rugby and its easy to keep scores out of view here in Canada.

    Hockey is #1 though, cant keep those scores out of sight!

    I actually had this idea for an app and like to see it was created.
