Sidecastr’s 2nd screen coverage of the top social TV shows kicked off with a bang last week. Because we take many of our cues on which shows to cover based on published metrics of social tv comment volume, we can’t tell you how pleased we are to be covering all the Presidential Debates, beginning with debate #1 this Wed 10/3. These debates will no doubt not only rocket past our social volume criteria, but will also give Sidecastr the opportunity help pioneer social TV’s role in the promotion of an informed citizenry.
Those of you who experienced Sidecastr for iPad’s curated live social stream during the political conventions last month know how our process of needing to fill all categories with a well-paced selection of the best, most insightful tweets rolling by helps insure that our subject matter experts – our social DJs – select a balanced distillation of comments. Let us know if you agree. We’ve chosen to use CNN’s broadcast of the debates, but our syncing capabilities should allow you to watch most of the time on any channel, except during the network commentary, which will of course be different from network to network.
Here’s our full schedule for the week of 9/30 + timeline of upcoming special events:
