What about social interaction on a second screen while watching a TV show? Do you find you check email or message on Facebook during a show? Do you multi-task?

Hi Peter, thanks for your feedback. It's really valuable to us to have all opinions and to understand the potential value of what we are offering and the audience that would most use it.

Thanks again,

When I first heard of the app called "Impulse Screen" I thought that "Impulse" implied "Impulse Shopping" and therefore may have a slight negative sound to it, with impulse shopping sometimes frowned upon.

After a while it didn't bother me anymore as I thought shopping on impulse wasn't a negative thing as I was on the pulse and getting the best deal in real-time, thereby satisfying my impulses for great shopping.

What do you think of the name "Impulse Screen"?

Thanks for your contributions.

Search did come up a few times in the survey that we conducted, with users of IceTV searching on a second screen looking for content related to a show - such as information on an actor or about a movie.

Do you think it's a better experience to search for information yourself (say on Google), or have information delivered to you that's relevant to the show you're watching and even location based (eg a special offer on movie tickets to a movie at your local cinema that features an actor that is in the show you're watching on TV)?

We asked some IceTV users how they use their mobile or tablet device while watching TV. So far we've had some interesting answers that fall under these main categories:

SEARCH: Looking up information related to the TV show that they're watching (eg information on actors or a movie)
SHOPPING: Buying things or searching for things to buy
SOCIAL: Checking Facebook and social media sites, checking email
ENTERTAINMENT: Watching catch up TV on the device

How do you use a mobile or tablet while watching TV? Do you fall into any of the categories? If so, what is your main activity?
