DirecTV Syncs Up With Miso's Social TV App

DirecTV has enabled its HD set-top boxes to communicate with Miso's social TV app for the iPhone, to let the satellite operator's subs more easily share what they're currently watching on TV.

The Miso "second-screen" iPhone app, when connected to the same Wi-Fi network as a DirecTV HD set-top, shows what's on TV and automatically updates whenever the channel changed. Ordinarily, Miso forces a user to manually search for the show they're watching to share it on Twitter or Facebook, as well as rate the show and access related info.

Miso's iPhone app for DirecTV is available free to download at Apple's iTunes App Store.
