GetGlue, the popular social service for checking into your favorite tv shows and movies, has just received an update to version 5.0. The update brings with it an all new design along with remote control capabilities for DirecTV customers, streaming options for many different providers including Netflix and Hulu, and more.
As far as updates to content and information, show pages not only have summaries of shows but full episode lists when they're available. You can add shows to the new Want to Watch list from the Summary page as well so you're reminded to watch those shows. Aside from the brand new interface, you can also choose your providers and watch content on demand when available. GetGlue is support Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, TMC, HBO GO, Showtime, and more for on demand streaming. You will need to set your content providers and have access to those channels of course. For DirecTV customers, you now have the option to use GetGlue as a remote as well.
The new Search & Discover section breaks GetGlue up into several sections including schedules, the Want to Watch list, friends, and more. This is a good place to drill down into content faster. Other than that, it's the same GetGlue many people already know and love. If you happen to try the update and notice any other changes, let us know in the comments! The iPad app doesn't appear to have received the update yet.
