Public broadcasters team up for Eurovision second screen app

Eurovision appThe EBU has collaborated with Sweden’s SVT, Germany’s NDR and the Netherlands’ TROS to develop a second screen app for the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö in Sweden later this month.

The app, which is available for iOS and Android users, provides news updates, photos and videos 365 days a year, and allows users to download their favourite songs from this year’s contest.

Second-screen functionality offers viewers live updates during the shows about the contestants, their songs, opening and interval acts, as well as the results.

The app also allows viewers to vote in the competition. Votes registered via the official app will be rewarded with a video response message from the contestant backstage.

The app will be available in English, Swedish, German and Dutch.
