Atlanta’s 11Alive inks deal with GetGlue

Atlanta’s NBC affiliate, WXIA-TV, has signed an agreement with social media service GetGlue to allow viewers to “check in” to its newscasts.

GetGlue is a social media service that lets users check in to TV shows, music and movies, similar to how services like Foursquare and Facebook Places allow users to check in to venues and locations.

The service now boats 1.5 million users.

The WXIA-TV-GetGlue deal includes custom badges featuring various 11Alive newscasts and personalities.
