Showtime Launches Second-Screen Companion App

Just in time for the season premieres of award-winning dramas Dexter and Homeland, Bottle Rocket Apps is proud to announce the release of Showtime Sync v2.0 for iPad. SHOSync has been completely redesigned as a second screen companion app, to be used in conjunction with Showtime's original series.

The app uses audio recognition to listen, identify and serve enhanced content for specific Showtime episodes. Whether you're watching live, pre-recorded, On Demand, streaming or from a DVD, the app will sync as long as the sound is audible. The enhanced content includes gorgeous production and behind-the-scenes photography, trivia, interactive polls and predictions, and exclusive video, and more! After the show, the video, photography, trivia and poll results are condensed in an episode digest that can be browsed throughout the week in anticipation of the next episode.

James Helms, strategist for the Showtime project says "Working with Showtime has been a fantastic experience. They have a great brand, great shows and, perhaps most important, they have high expectations for Bottle Rocket and our product. Those expectations really made us all rise to the occasion."

SHOSync is the latest in a series of broadcast clients to work with Bottle Rocket, crediting our expertise in the content delivery space. We're excited for our partners at Showtime and for the response from their fans!!

Join in the fun and download SHOSync here!
