GiftHulk TV

Hey GiftHulk fans!  There is a new feature that GiftHulk is testing right now, GiftHulk TV!  If you're a member of SB, it's the same sort of idea.  For every 10 videos, you get 2 HC.  While this may not seem like a lot, it does help to get your points up there if you have the time.

GiftHulk TV is currently in Beta Phase and available only to Canadian GiftHulkers.  If you click the "Earn" button at the top of the page, you'll see the dropdown of available ways to earn and GiftHulk TV is the bottom listing.  Click on it, and it will bring you to their special page.  You will see a message there stating "To watch GiftHulk TV and earn awesome prizes you must log in" and then you will see a Connect to Facebook button.  Click this and log in through Facebook to have access to GiftHulk TV.

To fill the progress meter, you need to watch new videos.  Watching videos you previously watched before will not count towards your progress meter.  You will also need to watch the complete video to get credit.

Just from the short time I've been using it, I've noticed that after you finish a video,another video comes up and plays, but it doesn't count towards your progress meter.   At this time there isn't a way to click "Next Video" without going to "Related Videos" underneath, or going back to the list you choose and then choosing the next video.  If you click the "Related Videos", it takes you to a whole different section.  

If you're like me, you like to be able to just click the next video, as this is simple and easy.  The way it stands now, it's a little difficult to keep track of where you are, especially if they add new videos frequently.  What I have been doing is clicking the section that I'm watching which currently is "Entertainment" and the "E!" section, so it takes a lot of extra time to keep watching the videos in order so you can keep track.  I would much prefer to use it if they had the bar underneath like they do before you choose a new video as a permanent feature, just like SB, that would be great.  I would also like to see a "Pop-up" version like the Toolbar SBTV so that you can have it to the side of whatever else you're working on, and then just click the next video.

I have noticed that GHTV has seemed to slow down my computer considerably.  I am a notorious multitasker with no less than about 5 or 6 different pages at a time, like Facebook, Hotmail, Blog, SP, GH, SB, etc.  Before opening GHTV I had no problems going in between pages, even on my slower work computer.  As soon as GHTV started loading, the speed went right down, and even as I'm typing I'm noticing a lag.  Hopefully this is something they can address as I don't have the same issues with SBTV.

One of your fellow fans, Kate Staffleitner noted that currently the maximum rounds of GiftHulk TV is 5, earning you 10 HC.  This could be only for Beta, or could be permanent.  There doesn't seem to be anywhere that confirms what the daily maximum is, but Kate got through 5 rounds (50 videos) and was told to come back tomorrow.  I want to send a special thank you to Kate for the head's up on GHTV and for telling me about the maximum daily for now.

If you have any suggestions, or encounter an problems with GHTV, GiftHulk wants to hear from you:
