Abstract

IntoNow1 from Yahoo is a second screen application that enhances the way of watching TV programs. The applica- tion uses audio from the TV set to recognize the program being watched, and provides several services for different use cases. For instance, while watching a football game on TV it can show statistics about the teams playing, or show the title of the song performed by a contestant in a talent show. The additional content provided by IntoNow is a mix of editorially curated and automatically selected one.
