Pixie is the smart TV ticker you'll actually like, especially during the World Cup

Susie Ochs | June 18, 2014
World Cup fever has gripped our office, and as I type this, a half-dozen of my coworkers are glued to all the action on our lounge's big-screen TV, with open laptops in their laps so it looks like they're working. Now, if you miss a big goal because you were answering an email from your boss, that's one thing, but if your head was down because you were scrolling through an endless stream of soccer-related tweets, you lost.

Pixie's CEO Kai Bond told TechHive that the company has plans to roll out more kinds of content cards, like fantasy football and movie reviews from Rotten Tomatoes. Instead of being distracted by a second-screen experience, Pixie wants to keep TV a lean-back experience. "You get to veg out and enjoy the game," he explained, "it's just enhanced."

Hey, if I can keep up with the jokes and smart-aleck analysis on my Twitter feed while not missing another heart-stopping shot on goal by Clint Dempsey, my World Cup experience will be quite enhanced indeed.
