CBS is offering fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL a whole new way to watch the soap with the newly-released CBS Connect App! The second-screen experience lets B&B viewers experience content like historical slideshows, interactive polls, behind-the-scenes trivia and Twitter interaction all while watching the show either live or on your DVR. The app syncs to whichever episode you’re watching and gives you all the extra information as you watch!
“The release of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL synched second screen app is exciting news for CBS Daytime and our audience,” said Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime. “The app marks a first for any daytime television program on network TV and, most importantly, enhances our fans’ TV-viewing experience, offering them a deeper connection with the characters and content of each episode.”
There are already second-screen experiences for primetime shows like CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI, HAWAII FIVE-O and NCIS: LOS ANGELES, but this marks the first time that a daytime show has been included on the CBS Connect app. The app is available at the iTunes App Store for free, so there’s really no reason not to give it a try!
