Zeebox launches on Android tablets

Second screen TV service Zeebox has launched a version of its app compatible for Android tablets. 

The companion TV service, which is now live in the UK, US and Australia, said the launch was in response to customer demand, with Zeebox already available on iOS devices, Android phones, BlackBerry phones and on the web.

“Our Android users have been very vocal about wanting a full-featured tablet version of Zeebox. Today we are delighted to launch Zeebox in all its glory for 10-inch tablets,” said Zeebox co-founder and CEO Ernesto Schmitt.

Zeebox was founded in 2011 by former EMI executive Schmitt and former iPlayer CTO Anthony Rose. The service lets consumers engage with friends around TV shows, buy what they see on screen, use the app to remote control their TV, and get more information about whatever programme they’re watching.
