Syfy Sync Gets Smart

It may not be the year 2047 yet, but we just took a big step into the televised future with our brand new interactive TV experience. You may be familiar with our sweet app Syfy Sync, which gives you an insider look at whatever episode you’re watching (provided it’s Sync enabled). Well, last week we launched the new “Syfy Sync for LG Smart TV” app that allows you to voyage deep into your favorite Syfy shows in a whole new way by recognizing the episode you’re watching and delivering exclusive content to your LG Smart TV in real time. Translation? Now all of the behind-the-scenes trivia, interactive polls and world-building backstories that you love in the Syfy Sync app are available directly on your TV. We're introducing this on Defiance Season 3, which airs on Fridays at 8/7c, so give it a try and let us know what you think.

How can I get this amazing new feature on my TV you might ask? Basically, you can use any Automatic Content Recognition (ACR)-enabled LG TVs with Netcast that have come out since 2012. The app will be available soon on LG Smart TVs featuring LG’s webOS Smart TV platform. Don't have an LG TV? No worries, you can still download the Syfy Sync app on tablet or mobile ot get all that extra content.

You’ll spend more time enjoying Defiance in the world of 2047, and less time switching between screens. Check out some of the images below to see what this groundbreaking new technology looks like:
