So let's be clear here, we're not talking about using the iPhone to stream TV or Video (as there are a myriad of ways to do this already) we're talking about enhancing the content you can distribute simultaneously via TV and an iPhone App (or any Smartphone app) to engage with a more interactive audience.
An Example TV iPhone App Concept:
So imagine you start seeing advertising announcing the return of your favourite 'whodunnit' to our screens. This same advertising is also promoting an app that allows you to participate by doing your own detective work. Whilst the show is airing you get to try to beat the on screen detective to the big reveal...tempting, yes?
iPhone apps can be developed to synchronise with the start of the live broadcast, plus the same app can also allow for manual launch for the sky+ recording generation.
