Dave Gee: Entertainment Now: New TV Community for Kiwis
Latest News from the world of Entertainment, including the newest TV shows, DVD releases, Pop Music, and Celebrity Gossip

Thursday, October 19, 2006

New Zealanders have a new online community to discuss what they're watching on the small screen.

The people behind New Zealand's Idolblog (for NZ Idol) and Street Talk (for soap Shortland Street) have launched a new NZ TV Community called Throng.

The site offers news and spoilers for some of the most popular tv shows, with surfers able to browse through different blogs by member, or by tv show. Members can set up their own blogs to talk about what they do and don't like on tv, as well as post their own tv news and gossip.

Throng also lets users rate tv shows, and ranks the programmes by popularity.

New site, just launched... Looks promising, especially with the existing teen traffic from Idol Blog and Street Talk.
