Ranker’s Free Watchworthy App Will Help You Find What to Watch Next




Ranker, the online publisher known for ranking everything from movies to fast food, recently launched a new, free app that will give you personalized TV recommendations. The app, called Watchworthy, will also allow users to create their own watchlists based on the content available from over 200 streaming services.

“There’s an inherent problem when only one-third of adults say they browse their streaming content menus, and 21% say they would simply give up altogether when they can’t find something to watch. And with so much TV out there, it’s only getting harder to pick new shows across all of the new streaming services popping up,” said Clark Benson, CEO and founder of Ranker. “Watchworthy is designed to relieve the paradox of choice by accurately recommending what is worthy of your time, where to find it, and how to watch it.”

How Does it Work?

Watchworthy uses Ranker’s machine learning platform to use data collected from Ranker.com to create the personalized recommendations. That means that the lists are crowd sourced and based on the rankings of real users. Watchworthy uses the example of fans of Better Call Saul, who tend to love gritty, dark dramas like House of Cards, Ray Donovan, and True Detective, but also cerebral comedies like Nathan for You and High Maintenance.

The app can create a list of recommendations after just 60 seconds of a user liking and disliking shows. Watchworthy can then turn a phone or tablet into a remote where users can immediately start watching shows from their watchlist directly on the device or cast to a TV.

Additional Features of Watchworthy

  • A “worthy score” on every series, showing the likelihood that it will be worth the user’s time
  • Filtering by service, genre, runtime, and rating
  • Ranker lists integrated into the app for even more recommendations
  • A watchlist based on the services the user is subscribed to

How to Use It

Watchworthy is free and currently available on iOS devices. Download from the App Store hereThe app will be available on additional devices, including Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV later this year. More features, including movie recommendations and shared watchlists, coming soon.
