Viggle Turns TV Watching Into American Red Cross Donations

Viggle Members Can Contribute to American Red Cross Hurricane Relief by Watching Television

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Viggle (OTCQB: VGGL), the loyalty program for TV, today announced that Viggle members can now redeem their Viggle points and make donations to the American Red Cross. For every 5,000 points redeemed, five dollars will be donated to provide the victims of Hurricane Sandy with meals and shelter.

"This Election Day, we're all taking the time to think about the future and the issues that are important to us," said Greg Consiglio, President and COO at Viggle. "Helping those who were devastated by Hurricane Sandy is extremely important, and Viggle is providing another avenue for people to contribute to relief efforts. We have seen such generosity from our Viggle members -- many who were saving their points to redeem an iPod or a gift card have emptied their Viggle accounts and are donating to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy."

While watching the election coverage on television, voters can use the free Viggle app to check in and earn Viggle points for their time spent watching TV. Viggle members are also encouraged to participate with Viggle LIVE during the election coverage and earn up to 1,000 additional points. Between now and November 13, Viggle is encouraging members to turn their time spent watching television into Red Cross donations. Viggle will match every dollar raised for hurricane relief up to $20,000.
