"CES: Yahoo Beats Google to Apps that Know What You're Watching"

TV apps debut that pop-up automatically to offer extra content related to the show you're watching.

It's a feature that Google made a point of talking about during its launch of the Google TV platform in May last year. But Yahoo will be the first to bring to TVs apps that know what a viewer is watching and pop-up extra content to enhance the show, the firm announced at CES. One example, shown above, is an app from the Showtime network that offers extra statistics during boxing matches. In the next few months an upgrade will be added to some Yahoo Connected TV devices to trial the feature, if all goes well the more than 5 million TV devices already running the platform could be upgraded to get it too.

The new feature also shows that TV networks that have been hostile to internet TV, and Google TV in particular, can appreciate broadcasting's new direction when it suits them. ABC and NBC both chose to block Google TV users from accessing content on their websites, but HSN and Showtime have signed up with Yahoo to develop TV-aware apps.

The interactive apps know what a person is currently tuned into, or watching from their DVR, as well as the current time. That allows them to trigger a small notification at the bottom of the TV screen when relevant, informing the viewer that extra content is available if they want it.

In addition to the Showtime app, demos at CES included one for Hawaii-5-O on CBS which when opened shows information about the actors and locations onscreen. A Home Shopping Network app offers the chance to buy the item onscreen at the time using the TVs remote control, or browse others in a virtual store.

Live, from Google I/O!
Thursday, May 06, 2010
More than 4,000 developers will be joining us at Google I/O on May 19-20, and if we had the capacity, we’d host many more. In order to give the entire developer community a chance to participate live, we're happy to announce that both keynote presentations will be streamed live. To watch, just go to at the start of the keynotes each day. We recommend watching on a high-speed connection for the best quality.

Here’s the schedule for the keynotes at I/O — it’s also available on our agenda page:
Day 1 Keynote: Wednesday, May 19, 9:00 -10:30am PT
Day 2 Keynote: Thursday, May 20, 8:30-10:00am PT
Both keynote sessions feature exciting new technologies, so be sure to mark your calendars!

Just a FYI, John Woodell from Google will be talking about getting JRuby to run on App Engine (via Rails and Sinatra) at Aloha on Rails, the Hawaii Ruby on Rails Conference. There are a few seats left if you want to meet John and talk GAE!
