A system and method are disclosed for providing push notifications on TV and movie content meeting set criteria based on categorical queries. The system considers queries recently issued by users, runs them offline, and identifies any new additions to the result set. The system either responds to specific user interest in receiving updates or infers relevance to decide whether or not to send a push notification to the user. The system calculates a score and sets threshold values above which a notification is sent to the user. The notifications could be sent by email, bite-sized alert, operating system (OS) alert or other common notification method.
