Travel Channel Announces Free Layover Guide App

Travel Channel wants to make planning your next excursion more accessible... and adventurous! Starting today, November 15, iPhone and iPad users can download the FREE Travel Channel Layover Guide on the App Store. Featuring Travel Channel's video, photography and expert advice, the updated guide provides a unique and off-the-beaten-path perspective on hotspots and local favorites in different cities around the world... and this time for free!

The first version of the app, which launched in March 2012 for $1.99, debuted as the #1 Travel download on the App Store. The updated version unveils an inside look at Chicago, coinciding with the premiere of season two of "The Layover with Anthony Bourdain" on November 19 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

Additional new/enhanced features of the "Travel Channel Layover Guide" includes:

· Spotlights 10 new cities as featured on the new season including Atlanta, Dublin, New Orleans, Paris, Philadelphia, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Taipei, Toronto (each new city will appear concurrently in the app as that episode airs).

· Users will be able to edit recommended times at any point-of-interest - restaurants, bars, stores, museums, etc. - presented in the app. Their personalized layover timelines will adjust accordingly.

· App users will be able to opt for advisories, as well as tune-in reminders for upcoming TV episodes.

· In-app navigation will be reworked to facilitate browsing within this expanded content set. "In-app" web browsing will make it easier for users to navigate from app content to any point of interest web site, and back.
