zeebox has further underlined its leadership position in the 2nd screen with an unparalleled rate of consumer adoption. US TV fans have been downloading and firing up zeebox at a record pace for enhanced 2nd screen experiences on the likes of NBC's the Voice, Grimm, MTV's Jersey Shore and HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Working closely with content partners NBCU, Viacom and HBO, zeebox has continued to innovate and enable new forms of audience engagement with the 2nd screen – including on-screen TV prompts during prime time shows about zeebox chat, voting, polling and gaming. As one example with NBC's "Take it All", the top-scoring players of a synchronized zeebox game were showcased nationally on a TV leaderboard at the end of each episode.
"zeebox seems to have struck a chord with US consumers hungry for a richer multi-screen experience in discovering and being social across their favorite TV shows" said zeebox USA MD, Jason Forbes. "Our partners NBCUniversal, Viacom, Comcast and HBO have made great use of the interactive toolkit zeebox offers, translating into consumer engagement of around 30 minutes per session across our mobile apps."
zeebox's unique features, including its sleek programming guide, contextual zeetags and recently added remote control integration for over 20M Comcast subscribers, have further enhanced the consumer experience. The zeebox app was picked as the 'No.1 iPad App of 2012' by influential site Mashable, and was selected '2012 Editor's Choice' and amongst the '10 Essentials in Entertainment' by the Apple App Store team.
"It's been a great first few months, but new types of partnerships and further product innovations in the coming quarter will accelerate zeebox growth even further. Watch this space." said Jason Forbes.
