Last month (see the article published on, February 26th), Fox Broadcasting launched its "Digital Content Syndication Network," which distributes its broadcast-synchronized second-screen interactive TV experiences--previously available only via its Fox Now apps--to third-party second-screen app providers. It also announced that it had selected Watchwith as its "sync-to-broadcast content management system partner" for the new network.
