Battle of the TV Networks
The major television networks have engaged in a decades-long struggle to win the hearts and minds (and eyes) of viewers. Whether it’s news, sports or sitcoms, these battles are now being fought on multiple fronts – including the distribution of their content through their web and mobile applications. With that in mind, this quarter’s uTest Bug Battle will challenge testers to find bugs on the web AND mobile apps of the four major TV networks:
The release is open from Noon (ET) on February 5 to February 12, 2010 at Noon. During that time, hundreds of other testers from around the world will search for GUI, technical and functional bugs in the aforementioned websites.
To win, all you have to do is find a bug and submit it to us through our online platform. The bugs must be original - bugs that are already known are not eligible - and because these are publicly available applications, we do not pay per bug like we usually do. Instead, we award prizes in several categories. For more on the rules and prizes, click here.
Once the competition is over, testers will fill out a survey, ranking each app in terms of usability, intuitiveness and other criteria. As with previous competitions, we'll be awarding nearly $4000 in prize money for:
- Top overall tester (based on quality of bugs and feedback)
- Top individual bugs
- Top mobile bugs
- Top feedback surveys (about the feature set, functionality and usability)
- And other awards
