Pick Your Favorite Shows & Create a Personalized Feed

March 11th, 2010 at 06:29 by Michele Husak in Announcements, Website

Today we’ve got a very exciting and cool new feature on Revision3.com that I’m psyched to tell you about. As you know we have a bunch of shows here at Revision3 for you to watch, and there are numerous ways to watch them: You can watch your favorite shows here on Revision3.com, or you can go to YouTube, or if you have a Roku or TIVO you can watch them there. But one way that a large number of Revision3 fans watch our shows is via RSS through an application like Apple iTunes, where you can subscribe to a feed for each show you watch.

The tech team here at Revision3 thought about that and came up with a cool idea. What if we made it easy for you to tell us what YOUR favorite Revision3 shows were and then we could create a feed that was personalized and unique to YOU and serve you all your favorite shoes as each episode is released? Then you can use that feed in iTunes, Google Reader, or whatever your preferred RSS application was. Pretty cool huh?

All you have to do is login to your Revision3 account (If you don’t have one, Register now, it’s easy!) and go to the “My Shows” section of your account. Tell us your favorite shows, what file format you want, and boom, we’ll give you your personalized RSS feed that will give you your Revision3 fix in one handy feed.

If you don’t know what RSS is, or what file format is best, that’s okay, we’ve made it easy by providing some handy explanations and details that should help you find your way.

We hope you dig this new feature and if you have any problems or questions, just post them in the Support area of the forums or email us at support AT revision3 DOT com.

Stay tuned here at the Revision3 blog, as we’re going to have some more cool, new functionality coming to Revision3.com in the upcoming months, so you’ll definitely want to sign up for an account so you can use all the cool, new stuff coming your way!

thanks.

    How come there is no way to get a feed of just the page where the web/flash version of the episode is? I’d rather just stream it than have to download the video file.

  • peacebyanymeans

    Wow, this is really cool!

    Sick feature, Now my iTunes won’t be cluttered with my rev3 shows.
    Just one RSS Feed.

    You guys rock…

    The YouTube link is incorrect.

  • http://revision3.com Chuck

    Thanks nextgenbox. All fixed.

  • netmikey

    Wow, great idea! :)

    I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but as someone who watches 99% of the shows on the Rev3 Site, wouldn’t it be cool if the custom list of shows be available in some kind of “My Rev3″ on the website too?

    You could then track seen shows and play all unseen shows since the last visit one after another, a feature like “watch all unseen episodes” that would chain then so one wouldn’t have to click through the site for each episode of each show…

    That would be my killer-feature, and you’re not far from it with this custom RSS feature :)

    Keep up the great work!

    Best regards,
    Mike

    When can I watch them on my PS3?

  • vpr

    In Miro the Show’s name (example: HD Nation) is listed at the end of the main Feed title. It’s out of sight without hitting the ‘show more’ button. Is there a way to move the Show’s Title to the beginning of the Feed Title so I know which show I’m downloading followed by the episode title:

    Current Format:
    -

    Format I want:

  • vpr

    oops – the formats didn’t display correctly:

    Current Format:
    [episode title] – [show name]

    Format I want:
    [show name] – [episode title]

  • ChaoticMind

    I use Boxee Beta for most or Revision3 videos, but I’ll use this to add to my custom RSS Boxee App!

    Thanks!

    For some reason, the newest TRS episode in my feed is Funky Fly (Nov 10th 2009).
