Discovery and TLC Apps for iPad Get Second-Screen Function

Discovery Plus

We’ve always thought the idea of a second screen could be very cool when done correctly. Tablets like the iPad are ideal for that. The Discovery and TLC apps now have the functionality.

The feature is synced with the TV broadcast, and gives users background information and additional details on the show they are watching. This may be actor bios or other bits of information relevant to the show. It also allows for DVR syncing for those who are unable to view the show during its original airtime.

The bad news is that not all shows have implemented this feature, which could be a bummer if your favorite show isn’t part of that lineup yet. Still, we’re sure that it will roll out onto more shows as time goes on.
