Samsung Adds Automatic Relevant Search to Smart TVs
The Samsung Social TV 3.0 displays a sidebar with a live Twitter feed including Tweets with a hashtag related to the show where a user can retweet directly from the TV. The sidebar can also display Facebook or Skype.
The feature is made possible through a partnership with Rovi. If you’ve connected a cable or satellite box to the TV and added your zip code in the setup, the TV knows what channel you are watching when you use the TV remote (or voice command) to change the cable or satellite channel.
