What Awards Does Tele-Tag Offer Its Players?
Players can choose either Tele-Tag Reward Points or Facebook Credits when they register. You can switch between earning Tele-Tag Reward Points or Facebook Credits any time in your Profile without losing the points or credits you have already accumulated.

- Only the awards and prizes posted on this page apply. This page will get updated frequently so check back frequently.
- Tele-tag makes the final decision if you tagged a scene on time or answered a trivia question correctly. While the Tele-Tag system uses iPharro Media’s industry leading video fingerprinting technology to detect when scenes are broadcast live on TV and whether you tagged these scenes on time, the system may not detect a scene (for example because the broadcaster had partially covered the scene with graphic announcements or ads which prevented our System from detecting the scene). In that case, you will not earn any point or credits even if you tagged the scene on time when it was shown live on TV.
- You will only earn points and credits for tagging scenes of the TV shows specified by Tele-Tag that are broadcast live on TV at the times and on the channels indicated by Tele-Tag. Players do not earn any points or credits for tagging any other scenes.
