A Faster SpoilerTV for 2013 *Updated 27th Dec*

Update: 27th Dec The Mobile site has been updated today with a "Select your Show" widget at the top of the page to allow you to filter all posts by the show you select.

We've also improved the way our video player displays on a mobile device.

Update: 26th Dec Hope you've all recovered from the excesses of yesterday! We've done a few small updates to make the homepage and article pages load even quicker. We'll post some more stats when we've got more performance data.

We've also improved the load speed of the site when you access it on a mobile. m.spoilertv.com. The mobile site should now load quicker and allow you to click on show labels to filter by shows. The comments are now fully enabled for all mobiles allowing you to both read and add your own comments.

Original Post

We are always looking at making accessing SpoilerTV as easy as possible and one of the things we've been doing recently is to make the site load as fast as possible so you can access the information you want quickly.

We've recently been doing a lot of optimizations to make the homepage www.spoilertv.com load as fast as we can and to display the content that matters to you a soon as possible.

We're pleased to say that we've now got the average homepage loading time to under 6 seconds. People with faster computers and connections will see an even quicker time. This average is for all users, no matter what their computer and connection speed are.

As you can see, this time last year the homepage loading speed was approaching an average of 30 seconds, which was far too slow. The chart below shows how we've slowly managed to reduce the loading time of the site.

We hope you find this new faster loading site a more pleasurably experience. We'll be looking at ways in the new year to improve the load times even further.

In comparison here are some of the average loading times of other sites that I've measured recently.

E!Online - 8 Seconds
Zap2It - 8.5 Seconds
TVGuide - 9.5 Seconds
Tvovermind - 11 Seconds
EW - 12 Seconds
TVline - 16 Seconds

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
