The social TV companion content provider announced a partnership with Comcast Sports Group Monday that will augment the media giant’s on-air baseball coverage with online statistics through a new feature they’re calling In Game Live.
The new interactive feature will be free to all users though it’s mean to be a second-screen companion, not an overlay to Comcast’s traditional coverage. In Philadelphia that means Phillies fans can find the app on CSNPhilly.com, according to a release to Technically Philly. Other coverage areas include Chicago, New York, and the Bay Area.
In Game Live, which launched in mid-April, will offer the following features, from the press release:
- Head-to-head statistical match-ups for pitchers and hitters
- Breaking Comcast SportsNet/SNY team and local sports news
- In-game statistical analysis
- Trending player coverage from Facebook and Twitter
- Fan photos
The biggest downside to this new feature?: the Phillies don’t have too many stats a fan would actually want to see right now.
