Today, we launched the newest version of Discovery Channel HD for iPad “Shark Week,” free of charge, in the app store, and we are thrilled to be the ones to make Shark Week truly interactive.
Just in time for this season’s Shark Week premier on Sunday, July 31st, this app version has “Shark Week Live,” which allows viewers watching the primetime television show to obtain behind-the-scenes information, exclusive production photos, maps, graphs, illustrations and incredible shark facts not seen on the show. All content is synchronized with the live TV viewing experience.
This new version boasts several new features like:
- Video “Cinepuzzles,” think a traditional puzzle vs. a static image
- The ability to “favorite” content for later viewing
- Live, interactive, co-viewing experiences
The user can also compete against other live viewers in polls and quizzes. Fans of the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, who definitely want additional information and exclusive content, can now see the show schedules, video clips, and photos, plus chat with other viewers via Facebook and Twitter about show content in this latest app.
