Second screen player Viggle will be using Telescope’s Connect platform to power the “Viggle Live” trivia game that complements TV programs being watched by users.

More than 4 million people use the Viggle mobile app.
“Combining our industry-leading play-along mechanics and social engagement tools with Viggle’s loyalty rewards program creates a truly differentiated experience in the increasingly competitive second-screen space,” said Jason George, CEO of Telescope in a statement on the agreement with Viggle. “By merging capabilities, we create both a richer experience layer for Viggle users and a more valuable advertising experience for brands and sponsors.”
