Jinni Search Engine Helps Discover Your Next Favorite TV Show or Movie
 
In the age of digital content distribution, you can customize and craft your entertainment experiences any which way you prefer. Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu will recommend what you should watch next, and iTunes’ Genius playlists will automatically recommend and aggregate music you might enjoy based on your current library.
 
Jinni, a new “me too” online search engine that powers search in “Xbox, Comcast/Xfinity, VUDU and More,” is getting into that very market with a flashy new website and accompanying iPad app. It has one ambitious goal: to recommend “the perfect movie or show.”
 
Similar to how marketplaces like Amazon use an algorithm to determine related products you might be interested in buying, Jinni is a search engine dedicated to television shows and movies. And similar to Hulu and Netflix, Jinni looks deep into your viewing history, finds trends, and pairs that data with an “Entertainment Personality” it constructs for you. From there, it finds the most relevant genres and titles you, by its calculation, will love.
