Comigo is prepping the launch of Games Center, an interactive gaming offering designed for the TV screen.

The company is also expanding its WatchApps family of interactive applications, allowing pay-TV operators to deliver experiences to viewers based on the content they are watching.

"Comigo offers a multiscreen platform which enables pay-TV operators to differentiate their services and excite their subscribers, and as a result enjoy new revenue streams," said Motty Lentzitzky, CEO, Comigo. "We welcome operators who are looking to set up a new TV service, or upgrade their existing one, to get a sneak peek of our cutting-edge Games Center and WatchApps, which bring new levels of interactivity and engagement to the TV experience."

The Games Center is delivered via Comigo's HEVC/4K Android-based STB. Through the Games Center, operators can deliver a variety of interactive games to their subscribers, such as action, adventure, racing, strategy and arcade, as well as multiplayer games, enabling viewers to socialise with friends. The games can be played either by using Comigo's Game Pad or the TV remote control.

Meanwhile, the upgraded version of WatchApps has a new user interface, improving user navigation and engagement. WatchApps include movie reviews, access to shows' Facebook and Twitter profiles, personal and social recommendations, e-commerce, song detection, sports stats and most popular channels.
