How does Viggle know what I'm watching?

When you tap the "Check In" button, audio from your TV is translated into an anonymous digital fingerprint that allows us to determine what you're watching.  Viggle only listens for the seconds that the app displays the "listening" message.

Once you are checked into a show, you will receive points for the time you watched the show.  Viggle assumes you watch until the end.  If you check into another show before the first show has ended, you will receive points for the first show up to the time you checked into the second show.  

You do not have to keep the Viggle app open for the entire show.  Your points will automatically be awarded at the end of the show.  You will receive a notification of the points you received.  You can look for that notification later by expanding the status bar on your device.
