[UKPRwire, Wed Jul 15 2009] From today singles will be able to search for love on their televisions thanks to a brand new partnership between BT and match.com, the company that helps millions of people find love.
The new relationship means that BT Vision customers will be the first to search the match.com site for potential partners on the TV from the comfort of their own living rooms. Good news for singles as the latest statistics show that finding a partner through an online dating site is now as common as meeting someone special through work*.
The new service available through BT Vision’s set top box, means that finding love couldn’t be easier and you don’t even have to switch on a computer. Just go to channel 955 on the TV guide, register for free and start searching match.com’s millions of members straight away. First timers will also get the first seven days free. Members will find all of match.com’s most popular features including; ‘winks’, ‘email’ and ‘add to favourites’ which means you can easily come back to the profiles that have caught your eye.
Those wishing to check their match.com account on the move or add to their profile and pictures can log onto the BT Vison website www.btvision.com/dating.
Kate Taylor, relationship expert at match.com said; “Being able to search for love on the box, from the comfort of your own couch, means that finding love really couldn’t be easier and you don’t even have to take off your slippers.
Kate continues; “What our friends think about who we date is important to so many of us, so next time the girls/boys are round for a night in front of the box, have a peak and see who’s been checking you out. Online Dating is so much more fun with a little help from our friends.”
Jeremy Rosenberg, business development manager, BT Vision, said; “match.com is the biggest dating site in the UK and is a perfect partner for us. So now as well as getting great entertainment on demand from BT Vision, you can search for your own perfect partner.”
