Not everyone has a TiVo or DVR and even those of us who do still miss, forget to tape or even program a show at the wrong time. Case in point: Victoria Beckham: Coming to America! Okay, so I saw part one, but I missed the "never seen shots" episode. What's a girl to do?
Due out this fall is a new service from CBS called "Eye-lert," which will attempt to remedy this problem. Featured on Switched Eye-lert will send you real-time programming alerts via text message or email to let you know what's on when. It will even let you know if a show has been moved time slots or if it's running late.
Even though I check my Google calendar periodically throughout the day, I love getting alerts on my phone to remind me of meetings and events. So getting up to the minute info about my TV shows will be just as useful!
