i.TV has released an update to its leading free TV listings app adding integration with popular TV check-in service GetGlue and support for Smart Lists and push notifications. i.TV allows iOS evic users to see what’s airing on TV as well as browse shows available on Netflix, Hulu and iTunes, remotely schedule TiVO DVR recordings and look up show information on iMDB and Wikipedia. With i.TV 3.3 users can now turn their TV viewing into a more social experience, letting their friends and contacts know what they’re watching by “checking in” to TV shows with GetGlue, Facebook and Twitter directly from within the app.

The new version also introduces a new Smart Lists feature that makes it easier for users to discover and organize content through dynamically updated lists themed by content type such as new shows, most favorited, and award winners. Support for push notification alerts also returns in this version allowing users to receive reminders when their favourite television shows air. i.TV also announced a partnership with AOL TV earlier this year, collaborating on the launch of the new i.TV-powered AOLTV.com site and the AOL TV mobile app, extending the reach of the i.TV platform to millions of AOL users and making way for future enhancements to the platform to improve the TV watching experience. i.TV 3.3 is a universal app requiring iOS 4.2 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download. The i.TV-powered AOL TV mobile app is also expected to be updated with these new features in the coming weeks.
