NBC Universal, Time Warner and Twitter will also be involved, offering apps which will allow users to access content from their TVs. alone plans to offer 600-plus hours of programming (which just about covers the first two seasons of The Sopranos), and the NBA has created an app which will keep viewers updated on games and scores in real time.
