HGTV Offers House Hunters Fans Premiere Episodes Every Weeknight at 10 p.m. Beginning February 6

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2012 -- Fans of HGTV's smash hit series House Hunters and House Hunters International can catch premiere episodes of each show every weeknight at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT beginning Monday, February 6. The first stop in the one-hour block will take viewers house hunting in a fun U.S. city, such as Hollywood, Washington D.C. and Chicago, before they jet to global locales such as Hong Kong, Bologna, Thailand and Antigua to find the perfect pied-a-terre.

Visitors to HGTV.com/househunters will find fun quizzes and games, including the exclusive House Hunters Bingo in which viewers can print game cards and play along with the show. House Hunters Bingo is the perfect complement to the series for fans who love tracking the hunters' most popular comments including "wow!" "this is amazing!" and "OMG!"

Viewers also can interact with the "house hunt" in real time using the new House Hunters app, which will be available in the App Store(TM) for download on Apple IPad(R) in February. The free app, which corresponds with episodes of House Hunters International that air on Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, offers Media-Sync technology that allows viewers to play along with homebuyers in the show. The app also will feature trivia about international living, quizzes on the houses in the episode, viewer polls and even a submissions feature to send in guesses for which house the soon-to-be-homeowners will choose.

The online community will have a new way to come together with a House Hunters Facebook page where fans can find additional exclusive content. They also can share stories about their own house hunting experiences and chat about the show. A "Fan of the Week" will be selected and showcased each week.

"The House Hunters franchise is a long-time viewer favorite and a pop culture phenomenon," said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. "This year we've enhanced the viewing experience for fans with fresh episodes, interactive apps, a bingo game and new social media activities - all of which serve to amplify the unique elements that make these series so universally appealing."
