We’ve already talked about Shazam-enabled shows, which allow TV addicts to not only recognize what they’re watching but also to interact with the show. The “world’s leading media discovery company” is now announcing that the entire second season of Being Human on Syfy will renew the integration of Shazam for TV into the hit series. In addition, other popular NBC Universal Cable Entertainment shows, E!’s The Soup and USA’s Psych, will also incorporate Shazam into special episodes airing in the coming weeks.
Being Human (Syfy) – The second season of Syfy’s hit original series incorporates Shazam for TV. When you use Shazam while watching the show, you can see exclusive scenes from the next week’s episode, a track list of the songs featured in that night’s episode and wallpaper for your device.
