Social integration and Internet television have not really been merged successfully by any application. Internet TV viewers need an app that lets them connect with their friends, check out their shows, chat with friends, etc. all while viewing their own favorite shows. Here to provide you with all those features is a tool called Zeebox.
Zeebox is a free to use iOS application that brings social networking integration to Internet television. The app is sized at 3.3MB, is compatible with the iPad running iOS 4.2 or later, and works only in the UK.
Amongst its many features, the app shows you program listing for channels in your area, connects with your social networking accounts and finds out what shows your friends are watching, allows you to chat with friends while watching a show and offers you the chance to watch previous shows.
For people who own an Internet-compatible television, the app can be used to transform your iPad into a television remote control. Flipping channels on your iPad would mean flipping channels on your TV.
