Title: (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR USING A SECOND SCREEN DEVICE FOR INTERACTING WITH A SET TOP BOX TO ENHANCE A USER EXPERIENCE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME UTILISANT UN SECOND DISPOSITIF D'ECRAN POUR INTERAGIR AVEC UN BOITIER DECODEUR AFIN D'AMELIORER L'EXPERIENCE D'UN UTILISATEUR
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A system and method for displaying data related to a content displayed through a set top box (22) includes a second screen device (40) generating a content information request signal requesting data corresponding to the content, communicates the content information request signal to the set top box. A data services center aggregates data from a plurality of data sources including at least one social media source to form aggregated related content data. The set top box (22) communicates a content information signal to the second screen device (40) comprising a content identifier. The second screen device (40) generates a request for related data signal corresponding to the content using the content identifier, communicates the request for related data signal through a network, receives aggregated related content data corresponding to the content from a data services center (50) and displays the aggregated related content data on a display (42) associated therewith.
