Love TV? There’s an app for that..new from CTV & Lexus

A growing number of TV viewers are watching TV with an iPad on their lap. They interact with their social networks and Google for details on the show they are watching. With an eye to these viewers, Bell Media and Lexus have teamed up to deliver the CTV Social App for iPad.

The app features a curated chat environment that includes tweets from cast members, Facebook comments and other insider and public commentary from across the social web, acting as a companion during primetime television shows. The CTV social app also allows you to stream on-demand a long list of CTV and CTV Two’s new programs and returning hits in primetime, late-night and daytime.

The main features of the CTV Social App are:

  • An interactive social environment to supplement your TV viewing experience, letting you join in on the conversation with CTV iPad App hosts and other viewers, and track commentary from actors, producers and other insiders.
  • On-demand streaming of CTV and CTV Two’s popular lineup.
  • Series photos, episode guides, news updates and the ability to share content links across social networks.
  • Interactive broadcast schedule by time zone.
  • Select sneak peeks, trailers and bonus content.

Thanks to the short Lexus commercials before each episode playback the CTV Social app is available for free on the App Store

      Thank you for letting me know. My host is Hostgator.com which provided average load times in the order of 7-10 seconds. I tried several cacheing plugins with little success. I finally decided to try a Content Delivery Network (CDN) and signed up for a free account at Cloudflare.com. I reduced the number of plugins running on my site to a minimum and was able to use the maximum performance setting which has reduced my load time to a very respectable 3-4 seconds
