Television channel Syfy announced today that it is relaunching its two apps for iOS as Syfy Now, a universal app with a complete redesign and more access to greater content. The app allows users to watch full episodes of Syfy programs and makes new episodes available the day after they air, and also syncs watch lists and in-show progress across multiple devices via iCloud. Social media sharing is also enabled in this update, as users are given the ability to share episode information directly to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

syfynow

Syfy Now is your destination for full episodes of your favorite Syfy shows, including new episodes available the day after they air for most programs. Once you open the app, log in with your cable or satellite provider account to gain access to the currently available episodes. The same app works on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch – you can even sync your watchlist and in-show progress across multiple devices via iCloud.

The app allows for full viewing capability with 11 cable and satellite providers, and claims that more are coming in the future. Users who do not have a compatible cable or satellite provider are still allowed to view select full episodes and clips from Syfy shows, as well as additional content including original online series.

Syfy Now is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Oh, yes. It should rhyme with the first two syllables of "syphilitic."

But that would be "sih-fih". I'll stick with "see-fee".

Now, perhaps you could argue that it should be pronounced "sih-fee" as in rhyming with "iffy", and that would be an appropriate association, given the state of the network, at this point...

There is no BBC app for Apple TV
:confused:

This story (https://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/16/syfy-now-launches-for-ios-with-greater-access-to-content-icloud-syncing/) is about an iOS app for the SyFy Channel (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id378092432?mt=8).

There is an iOS app for the BBC (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/bbc-iplayer/id416580485?mt=8).

Not really sure how a discussion about apps for the Apple TV fits into this discussion...

Is that any different than "See-Fee"?

Oh, yes. It should rhyme with the first two syllables of "syphilitic."
