To enhance the Shark Week experience, the Discovery Channel has released Shark Week Live for iPhone.
SHARK WEEK LIVE is a co-viewing app, designed to enhance your enjoyment of the Shark Week TV shows on the Discovery Channel. Just activate the app while you're watching Shark Week (July 31st - August 5th on the Discovery Channel), and you will be treated to exclusive behind-the-scenes content synchronized to the TV broadcast. You can also compete in real-time against other viewers, by playing the Shark Week LIVE trivia game.
Discovery Channel HD has also been updated with the same content, and more:
- Shark Week Live interactive co-viewing experience
- Video puzzles
- Ability to "favorite" content for viewing later
- Schedule screen and Featured screen now show full episode descriptions
- Updated content badges for shows
- Facebook sharing links now use bit.ly
- Non-US IP addresses can now view video content
This may come as a surprise, but this loser has never watched Shark Week. However, my two week vacation starts tomorrow and includes access to the Discover Channel, so I just might pick up these apps and join in on the Shark Week craze.
Shark Week Live and Discovery Channel HD are available for free.
