About Viggle(SM)

Viggle is a loyalty program for television that gives people real rewards for checking into the television shows they are watching. Available for Android, Apple iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, Viggle automatically identifies the television shows its users are watching and awards them points when they check-in. Viggle users can redeem their points in the app’s rewards catalogue for items such as movie tickets, music, gift cards or they can convert them into charitable donations.

About Viggle Inc.(SM)

Viggle Inc. (Symbol: FNCXD) was founded by media entrepreneur Robert F.X. Sillerman who has pioneered a number of successful television, radio and live entertainment businesses. Sillerman created the company in June 2010 to develop businesses, products and services that encourage consumers to engage in different ways with entertainment such as TV, movies, games and music. The Company launched Viggle, a loyalty program for television in January 2012. Originally named Function(x) Inc., the Company changed its corporate name to Viggle Inc. in June 2012 and is planning to change its stock symbol to VGGL, pending regulatory approvals.
