Spoiler Shield Now Blocks Game of Thrones Spoilers on Mobile & DesktopApp Fends Off Spoilers for Over 50 Shows Including Mad Men, 24 and Survivor (May 06, 2014)
LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 06, 2014) - The latest version of the Spoiler Shield app and a new Google Chrome Extension have been released to coincide with the ever-accelerating seasons of GAME OF THRONES (HBO), MAD MEN (AMC), 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY (FOX), and the English Premier League. The app, which shields viewers from unwanted spoilers on social media, is free to download for iOS, Android, Kindle and Google Chrome users, and is available in the iTunes App Store, Google Play Store, Amazon App Store and Google Web Store.
With the new spoiler blocking Chrome Extension, users can go to Facebook and Twitter on their desktops worry-free and spoiler-free. The extension also syncs with an individual's mobile selections allowing for cross-platform spoiler protection. A user who sets a shield on their phone at work will now be protected when they check Facebook or Twitter on their home desktop in the evening.
"Spoilers have become a cultural phenomenon," says Josh Solt, co-founder of Spoiler Shield. "Our goal is to banish them from your lives. The 'Purple Wedding' episode of GAME OF THRONES wreaked havoc on social media which could have been prevented by Spoiler Shield. We're excited to offer both mobile and desktop solutions as this GAME OF THRONES season moves forward and other shows premiere."
Over 50 shows are now covered by Spoiler Shield, including GAME OF THRONES, HOUSE OF CARDS, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. AMERICAN IDOL, THE WALKING DEAD, THE AMAZING RACE, SURVIVOR and DANCING WITH THE STARS among others. Sports fans can also use Spoiler Shield to avoid seeing the scores of games involving their favorite MLB, NHL, NBA or EPL team.
Spoiler Shield is designed to block any post that could potentially spoil a show or game. With a single touch, a user can select a television series or team to shield, and then the technology does the rest. The shields, which are updated in real time to stay current with hashtags and ongoing sports and show developments, ensure that all spoilers are blocked while all other posts on a user's feed remain visible. Spoiler Shield's demo video provides additional examples of the app's user-friendly experience.
"We originally created Spoiler Shield because we were frustrated by spoilers surrounding the 'Red Wedding' episode of GAME OF THRONES," adds Matthew Loew, Spoiler Shield co-founder. "Not everyone can be home in front of the TV on Sunday night, and now with Spoiler Shield we have the freedom to watch the struggle for the Iron Throne on our own schedules."
