The features are announced in a one-line description in the Sky+ App Store page: “DISCOVER MORE – Actor and background info on shows, related news and live Twitter feed.”
TheNextWeb has been playing with the app, noting the ‘Powered by Zeebox’ logo in the corner of the Discover More screen within the app. The layout is familiar from the standalone Zeebox app, but with Sky colours and branding.
The update marks the latest chapter in BSkyB and Zeebox’s partnership, with the satellite broadcaster already having taken a 10% stake in the second-screen startup in January 2012.
Zeebox currently has between 300k and 400k active users in the UK, according to Rose.
