How Crazy Is This?

TVEYES is “always watching” television to see if your keywords that are entered at the site show up. If they do, on any program, it sends you an email with a brief transcript, including links to the full transcript. So of course, I signed up, entered the word “blog”. Let’s see if I get any hits on television for that word.

It *seems* to be free, though I’d be curious to hear what the business model on this badboy was. Surprised this didn’t come out in 1999. The “parent”, TVEYES, Inc. can be found here Okay, so it looks like they have been around for a while, since at least 2000. They say you can have three keywords for free, but upgrading to “Gold” will cost you a “low yearly rate” for “unlimited keywords”. Fascinating. I don’t watch that much television, but whatever. Either way, I don’t see a way to get *off* the list and de-sign up. Hmm. Perhaps you have to send them feedback.

So why all the hubbub? Because it was on MetaFilter, of course.
