So it is only nat­u­ral that tech­nol­ogy will try to in­te­grate these screens for a value-added ex­pe­ri­ence. The NDS Ser­vice De­liv­ery Plat­form, for in­stance, lets de­vel­op­ers cre­ate app that in­te­grate with the con­tent on TV. So you can tweet a link about the show about the show you are watch­ing on TV. And that is just the tip of the ice­berg as far as apps are con­cerned. In fact, with many ser­vice providers across the world you can al­ready take your TV con­tent to mul­ti­ple screens. Fol­low-me func­tions be­ing adopted by NDS, the lead­ing global provider of end-to-end soft­ware so­lu­tions for TV in­dus­try, In­tel and oth­ers let you take your TV pro­gramme from the TV to your phone or tablet and then to your car screen with as much ease. The elec­tronic pro­gramme guides (EPGs) are also evolv­ing and you will soon be able to get more info about a show from your TV screen it­self. On the flip-side you might also see a lot of EPG-based ads—like a cook­ware ad as you are look­ing at the info of a cook­ery show.
