TV.com Releases WatchList

There are tons of places to watch TV online legally and for free. Hulu gets much of the buzz, in part because it was the first really comprehensive offering with big corporate partners, but it’s hardly the only player out there. CBS-owned TV.com was recently redesigned and the site has been taking steps to become not just another place to watch TV, but a full-fledged social community.

Now the site is launching a new way to keep track of what shows you want to watch and even where you want to watch them, with its new TV.com WatchList feature. The WatchList is really easy to use — basically you just search or browse for shows and choose to add them to your list. From the list, you can see upcoming shows for the rest of the week (and when they will be airing locally on your regular TV), watch a preview of upcoming episodes if they are available, and go right to the show’s page, which will provide clips, full-length episodes, reviews from the community, etc.

You can even record a show from your WatchList on your TiVo by connecting your TiVo account with TV.com. That way, you can choose to record an individual episode or get a Season Pass on your TiVo right from TV.com.

Because TV.com uses Facebook Connect, you can see which of your friends are watch the shows you watch and have seen or are planning to see the upcoming episode. Soon, you can share that you are planning on watching a show using Twitter, Facebook or MySpace. TV.com isn’t trying to be the only place you visit to watch TV shows online, instead, they want the site to act as sort of a central manager, making it easy for you to watch shows online, on regular TV or on other sites like NBC.com. TV.com wants to be the TV Guide of the 21st century.

Only time will tell if these features will be enough to make TV.com more than just a dream domain name, but features like the WatchList and better social media integration are a great way at honing out a distinct niche in the vast space of TV portal sites.

What do you think about TV.com’s WatchList feature? How do you manage what shows you are going to watch (online or off)?

A couple of years ago, Ken Jennings got himself plenty of attention by becoming Jeopardy’s longest-running champion. But what he really should have gotten recognition for was coming up with one of Jeopardy’s most amusing answers as displayed in this video clip.
