The Social TV [1] is a web based widget/app implemented with Samsung toolchain in an EU-AAL funded project. In principle modern TVs are rather ubiquitous devices and have now easily accessible screens. In 2009/2010, Samsung’s Smart TV branded as Internet@TV was one of the first Hbb based platforms that started major buzz and development. However, just like many other Hbb related platforms, alongside Google TV, these are solutions that are yet calling for application and maturing.
