Discovery Channel Enables Social TV with New iPad App

Discovery Channel App for iPadIncreasingly, we are spending more and more time on mobile devices. Personally, I can hardly think of a time when I’m not with my iPhone, iPad or BlackBerry (yes, I’m addicted)… and that’s especially true when I am watching TV.

For that reason (and many others), I’m excited to see the launch of the new Discovery Channel App for iPad in conjunction with the announcement of the iPad2 by Apple today. The interactive app, which you can download for free from the App Store, complements Discovery Channel programming with social TV features. Fans can check in using the “I’m Watching” button and let their friends on Facebook and Twitter know what they are watching, while also getting the latest updates from Discovery Channel and joining the social media conversation with fellow fans.

If you’re an iPad owner, check it out and let us know what you think. You can also check out and download the other apps from Discovery Channel!
