Samsung's Sports Live To Bring Second Screen Stats To Aussie TVs In 2015

Video: More and more Aussies are sitting down in front of sports like cricket, tennis and football with a refreshing drink in one hand and some sort of mobile device in the other. In a bid help you keep your eyes on the game and not your tablet, Samsung is bringing a new feature to its Smart TVs in 2015 called Sports Live.

Sports Live is an overlay that sits on top of sporting matches, cycling through results, statistics and other relevant figures on your TV so you don't have to take your eyes off the game.

It takes data from the networks broadcasting the game and throws it at viewers to give them a dual-screen experience on the one panel.

It's a feature that we saw at CES 2015 running on Samsung's new range of Tizen-powered TVs.

Samsung Australia confirmed that Sports Live would be coming to Australia in 2015, but wouldn't say which sports or codes it would kick off with.

    I live for the day I'll be able to select the feed I want to see for sports. Not what someone thinks I want to see.

    ie; Watching a game of AFL will never be the same (as good?) as being there .... untill you can have a dedicated screen to watch the ebb and flow across the whole ground and one to watch the close up action.
