Yahoo's interactive content won't be half-arsed, either, as it gives the interactivity to the programming you're watching at the time. This will include trivia, program statistics and other types of playable games. The option of using your smartphone or tablet as a quasi-remote control to view and share additional interactive content is also on offer.

Looks like Samsung Smart TV owners have something to look forward to over the coming months, with EA also jumping on-board with Monopoly and The Game of Life apps, too.
