Samsung and Peel teaming up to provide interactive content during 2012 presidential debates
If you plan on watching this year’s presidential debates between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney, and are wanting to get in on the action with some interactive content, now might be the time to snatch up a Samsung tablet if you don’t already have one. Samsung and Peel are partnering up to bring viewers the ability to do more than just watch the debates.
Users that own a Samsung Galaxy tablet that have the Peel Smart Remote TV app installed will be able to provide real-time feedback during the 2012 presidential debates. Users will also be able to use the Peel app to easily switch the TV channel to any of the available stations that are showing the debate.
Throughout the debates, users will be able to “cheer” and “boo” responses from the candidates and to voice their support either for or against. Immediately following each debate, Peel claims they will be the first to provide a broad range of feedback from thousands of other viewers based on what they had to say through the app.
You can also see which candidate that viewers believe dominated the debate most, see which issues that were discussed received the most feedback, and even donate to the Obama or Romney campaigns straight through the app. The Peel app is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Tab 7.7, Tab 2 7.0, Tab 2 10.1, and the Note 10.1. The presidential debates will be broadcasted live beginning on October 3.
