MUMBAI: Tandberg Television has provided an interactive television experience for entertainment fans via polls, trivia, winner predictions, fashion critiques and backstage video feeds during the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards on 15 January on NBC.

"NBC.com has been aggressively exploring interactive features for our programming and this is another great example."

During the broadcast of this year's Golden Globe awards, viewers could provide winner predictions, fashion critiques by logging on to http://www.nbc.com/Golden_Globes_2007 at NBC.com. and earn points for their participation or even compare responses to those of other players.

"The interactive television (iTV) application we developed for this year's Golden Globes broadcast demonstrates the direction that the television industry is heading," said, Tandberg Television senior vice president, programmer sales Joe Franzetta.
