The two mega corporation Samsung and Yahoo just teamed up together to give it’s user’s a new Interactive TV experience. Samsung appears to think it is a next big thing and signed a multi-year partnership with yahoo for its lineup of smart TV’s.
Connected TV—software that brings interactive content like trivia, program statistics and playable games to the shows you’re watching—hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts so far. In particular, the tie-in will allow Samsung TV users to use their smartphone or tablet as an extra remote, or as a means through which to consume Yahoo’s additional content. That sounds pretty cool.
The only major negative part is that Yahoo service also recognizes commercials—so you could expect twice the advertising along with your entertainment.
