Interactive TV content is something we’re going to start to see more of in the near future. With tablets and web apps growing in popularity, AMC wants to get ahead of the game and has just announced The Walking Dead Story Sync. Starting with the new episode of The Walking Dead this weekend, you’ll be able to vote on polls, answer trivia and chat while watching the show:
“Attention The Walking Dead fans: Looking to immerse yourself deeper into your favorite TV series? AMCtv.com introduces The Walking Dead Story Sync, a live, interactive experience that allows you to vote in snap polls, answer cool trivia questions, and re-live tense killer moments via video clips during the premiere broadcast of the latest episode. Think Shane should have stayed away from the barn? Vote in Story Sync’s Judgment Poll. See a particularly gruesome walker kill? Rank it on the Gore Gauge. As always, a live Watch & Chat lets you join fellow fans in the running commentary on that night’s show.
The first Story Sync begins this Sunday night with The Walking Dead Midseason Premiere at 9/8c and 9PT. Log on to amcstorysync.com with your preferred Internet browser or tablet device, tune in to AMC for the broadcast and look for live updates on Story Sync throughout the episode.”
The Walking Dead returns from its mid-season break on February 12th. Catch up on our recent coverage of The Walking Dead Season 2:
