HBO and Miso Bring "Game of Thrones" Fans to the Second Screen

HBO and Miso Bring "Game of Thrones" Fans to the Second Screen | Social TV is everywhere | Scoop.it
HBO is partnering with Miso to bring Game of Thrones fans an awesome second screen experience.

 

Miso launched its new SideShow platform at the end of 2011. The idea is to allow fans or networks to create customizable, synchronized content to go alongside what airs on TV. This can include trivia, character information, quotable moments, polls and more.

 

This is not the first use of the SideShow platform — USA Network recently launched official SideShows for the show White Collar. But HBO is taking a slightly different approach. Recognizing that Game of Thrones has a fanatical following, the network is asking fans to create their own SideShow content for each episode of the first season of the show.

Fans can vote on what SideShows they like best and the top three entries for each episode will win Game of Thrones swag and other goodies. When Game of Thrones season 2 premieres on Apr. 1, 2012, HBO and Miso will announce the winning SideShow for each episode. Those winners will get additional prizes, social mentions and have the honor of having their SideShow dubbed the “official” pick in the Miso iOS app.

Is The Next Frontier In Social Media Your TV?

Is The Next Frontier In Social Media Your TV? | Social TV is everywhere | Scoop.it

Television has always been an inherently social activity, from sitting around the tube with friends and family to post-mortem water cooler discussions the morning after a broadcast. But that’s been waning of late. These days, families are more likely to gather around a computer for a bonding media experience. DVRs mean programming is often time-shifted. There’s less and less “event” viewing — shows like sporting events or the Academy Awards that are timely or time-sensitive enough to warrant watching live.

All the above is to say nothing of cord-cutters, people who have kissed their cable boxes and satellite dishes goodbye. A recent Deloitte survey puts these at nine percent of the population, with another 11 percent giving the matter serious consideration. Yet cord-cutting doesn’t scare the industry as much as people who will never even have cords to cut: younger people starting out who are accustomed to consuming content in digital channels. Why bother with a cable subscription, particularly in this economy?
