    Discovery Communications, the parent company of the cable channels Discovery and TLC, recently released updates to the Discovery Channel HD and TLC for iPad and iPhone apps that now offer second-screen features on the iPad side. According to the app description the second-screen feature is branded as Discovery Plus and TLC Plus and offers:

    …an interactive second-screen experience, synced live to your favorite shows! Fully integrated into the app, simply tune in during a TLC/Discovery Plus-enabled show and sit back for exclusive factoids, photos and more! Or play a previously aired Plus-enabled show on your DVR, and sync to view the experience on your own schedule.
    The company notes that not all of its shows are Plus-enabled as of right now. The Plus features are also only available on the iPad, though the company does have intentions of adding them to the iPhone versions of the apps soon. Those of you interested in downloading the apps can do so for free from iTunes.

    Will any of you be using the second-screen features on your iPad?
