Samsung’s new range of SMART TV’s features an app store (doesn’t everything these days?). This afternoon in Melbourne, Essendon Football Club Captain Jobe Watson and players Mark McVeigh and Michael Hurley helped launch the BigPond AFL Game Analyser application. The free app allows you lucky few who have a Samsung SMART TV to watch ANY game from the 2010 and 2011 seasons.. wow.
Brad Wright, National Sales and Marketing Manager for Audio Visual, Samsung Electronics Australia, said, “With games available within 12 hours of being played, the BigPond AFL Game Analyser app gives footy fans the best seat in the house. They can now interact with every aspect of the game, relive game-changing moments, argue with their friends over umpire decisions and celebrate a game’s highs and lows.”
The application puts you in control of the action, allowing you to access game highlights like goals, marks, tackles and bloopers via the remote control. Big thanks to those hardworking statisticians who power mark and index all the action, what an un-recognised job.
You can also access statistics on the game, players etc. Each game of AFL played will be added within 12 hours of being played. Impressive, but I’d expect to see live stats at some point in the future.
If your an AFL super-fan, a Samsung SMART TV with the AFL Game Analyser is a must have. Lets face it, there is no other 10-foot experience like it. For those Rugby fans out there, don’t sweat, there’s also a similar NRL Game Analyser app for you.
This kind of complimentary application really sets the scene for things to come in the living room. My only wish was that Sammy’s SMART TV’s were a little cheaper so more people could enjoy these great new experiences.
