Myspace returns as a second-screen social TV service


Last year, we reported on Myspace’s new owners, with Justin Timberlake signed up to take an at-the-time hazy role in relaunching the social entertainment service. Yesterday, we got part of the vision, and it’s focused on TV. Myspace TV will make its debut on Panasonic’s range of connected TVs, and will let people see what their friends are watching, while posting comments from their smartphones or tablets. Music is the focus, with films, news, sports and reality-TV to follow. Timberlake took to the stage at Panasonic’s CES show press conference to introduce the new service. “Why text or email your friends to talk about your favorite programs after they’ve aired when you could be sharing the experience with real-time interactivity from anywhere across the globe?” said the star in a statement. It’s due to launch in the first half of this year, with the companion app presumably allowing people without Panasonic TVs to join in.
