Bruce Mitchell, of SyFy’s owner NBCUniversal, said: ““After piloting Syfy Sync with the UK premiere of Defiance, we will explore opening up the app to other content on the channel, to cross-promote content between audiences.”
When shows are on air, SyFy Sync will offer exclusive extras as they’re broadcast, giving viewers in-depth information on characters and events.
Set in the near future, Defiance follows the human and alien survivors of an interstellar war, which has transformed the Earth, as they struggle to build a new society.
It will launch alongside a massively multiplayer online game where players can take part in events around the TV show’s story.
