TV Pixie was a British website about television programmes founded in 2009. The company was closed in 2012.[1]


TV Pixie was founded by Alex Guest after he left Zattoo, where he was the UK country manager, in 2009. The site was conceived as an ad-funded portal for television viewers to discover new TV programmes and to read reviews.[2]

In November 2011, TV Pixie's blog[3] was ranked 140th out of 4,935 television-related sites globally by Technorati, putting TV Pixie's blog ahead of The Guardian newspaper's TV and radio blog, ranked 210th.[4]


The company was one of the winners of the IC Tomorrow competition run by the UK Government's Technology Strategy Board in 2011.[5]

TV Pixie's entry is a finalist in the Technology Strategy Board's 2012 Race For Apps contest.[6]
