I'm so very sorry SHO is CXL-ing SHOSync!!
It was fun to watch shows and have additional content, behind-the-scenes peeks, interaction with/between viewers...so much "added plus" for their shows and for us viewers. I was just starting to teach my b/f about Sync & shows & what fun & value it could be and "poof"...there it goes. My sad face is showing. But maybe it's my fault: every time I love a show, and/or writing, it seems to get cancelled. (!cough! Constantine; Hannibal !cough!). **sigh** Is it even worth getting out of bed anymore? It's all spoon fed to us without our need to be involved at any point in the process. Unless all apps come with Neilson counters built in... I'd've thought it'd be preferable to have an audience ACTIVELY engaged, rather than passively, but what do I know? Hell, it's all available for rent or purchase on iTunes later...why even use the apps? Hell in a hand basket, and SHO just took away time from the "Why do we even need..." Clock.
Showtime is one of my favorite networks. I watch almost all of the series on Showtime. I have been using this app for all of the shows that I watch. I was a little concerned when The Affair was on and there wasn't an opportunity to use this app with it. Now three new shows have started. All three have been used on this app before, but now only Shameless is available on the app. Episodes and House of Lies aren't able to be synced. I'm going to continue using the app. I would give it five stars if all of the shows were there.
I love this app. It is truly interactive TV. I do have one issue is getting started. When you open the app, it listens for the show on your TV. In the beginning you get a thing to sign up for some sort of prize. However it is not easy to determine how to get out of that screen and begin the questions. I keep pressing all over until I eventually get to questions. This part needs to be made more user friendly.
