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.
