Thuuz provides users a better way to stay on top of their favorite sporting events. Thuuz covers all the major sports, including baseball, hockey, soccer, basketball, and football. Users can set up alerts so that they never miss a big game. The site also provides details for recent and upcoming games, including the teams playing, game number, time, date, and what channel the event is being covered on. Although Thuuz includes a lot of basic information, the site explicitly excludes scores or other in depth game details. This is to help keep the excitement in watching sports, rather than spoiling it for the user by revealing the outcome.Show more screenshots »
Thuuz was founded in September of 2010. The site’s goal was to help bring excitement for sports to a new level. The three cofounders, Bob Barcklay, Warren Packard, and Bill Bradford, equipped Thuuz with a number of helpful features that encourages users to sign up and follow their favorite sports. By taking advantage of the internet, Thuuz can give users the details they need to follow up or tune in to their favorite games without watering down the process by sharing scores.
The approach the creators of Thuuz has taken makes the site unique. While many other online resources are designed purely for information, Thuuz focuses on excitement. Rather than taking the fun out of watching a game and anticipating the outcome with scores and results, Thuuz leaves it up to the user to enjoy their preferred sport to the fullest. The site still provides helpful information and notifications to make an account worthwhile for sports fans.
The Thuuz website presents users with a stylish white logo, black background and easy to use layout. There is no clutter or flashy advertisements to distract from the main goal of the site: to encourage sports fans to truly enjoy their game of choice. The top of the homepage features a navigation bar that takes the user to their desired sport, a good design choice that helps keep the site user friendly.
A new visitor can become a Thuuz user by clicking the green “register” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The user is asked to enter a username, valid email address, password, and zip code. The form then asks the user to choose either email or SMS for game alerts. After clicking the green and white “Create your account” button, the user is directed to an email code entry form. A note advises the user to check their email for a message containing a validation code. Once the code is entered, the user can complete registration and begin using Thuuz.
Anyone can visit the Thuuz website and create an account at no cost. The site is really intended to serve a basic service for sports fans, so the free price tag is definitely a plus. In order to justify a premium paid account option, Thuuz would have to add features. The current capabilities offer a good value for the price. Any sports fan can really enjoy using Thuuz to stay on top of their favorite sporting events.
Thuuz caters to one main group: sports fans. The site is ideal for any level sports fan. The casual game watcher can appreciate the user friendly design and free membership, while the extreme sports fan can fall in love with the convenience and rating system. Both types of sports fans (and all in between) can participate on the site and enjoy the available features, which are intended to expand into even more sports categories at some point in the future.
