DISNEY/ABC TELEVISION GROUP LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE "GREY'S ANATOMY" SYNC APP FOR iPAD

New App for ABC's Top Rated Series Offers Enhanced Viewing Experience Powered by Nielsen's Media-Sync Platform

Disney/ABC Television Group today announced the new "Grey's Anatomy" Sync App for iPad App, now available on the App store. Powered by Nielsen's Media-Sync Platform, the app provides fans of the show the ability to interact with exclusive content in real time using iPad. Lexus is the presenting sponsor of the "Grey's Anatomy" Sync App.

Launching with the February 3rd episode, the app will allow "Grey's Anatomy" fans to seamlessly interact and engage with specific moments in all of this season's remaining, first-run episodes. In addition to exclusive companion content like polls, trivia, behind-the-scenes insights, production details, character bios, video and photo galleries, users will also be able to "check-in" to virtual environments within episodes, such as riding an elevator with Dr. McDreamy. Users can then share their experiences with friends and other fans of the show through their Facebook account.

In addition to engaging with episode content, users will have the ability to interact directly with Lexus' ads through trivia and also link back directly to the Lexus website (m.lexus.com/TheHardWay).

The new offering is the latest collaboration between Disney/ABC and Nielsen following last fall's My Generation Sync app, a proof-of-concept experiment that was initially tested last fall.

Nielsen's Media-Sync Platform is a complete application development and operating environment that allows TV content producers and broadcasters to deploy sync-to-broadcast mobile apps in a rapid and scalable fashion. The platform relies on audio watermarks already inserted into nearly every TV program in the U.S. as part of Nielsen's industry standard TV audience ratings service. In addition to giving viewers the ability to interact with synchronous content tied to their favorite shows, the Media-Sync platform also delivers interactive advertising modules as companions to the ads on the big screen. This capability gives viewers the opportunity to dive deeper into TV ads for products that interest them, and gives advertisers a powerful new way to extend the effectiveness of their TV ad buy.

ABC's Grey's Anatomy Media-Sync App is available from the App Store on iPad at www.itunes.com/appstore.

A video demo of the new "Grey's Anatomy" Sync App can be viewed at www.abc.go.com/shows/greys-anatomy/ipad.

Now in its seventh season, "Grey's Anatomy" is the recipient of the 2007 Golden Globe(R) Award for Best Television Series - Drama, and multiple Emmy nominations, including two for Outstanding Drama Series. The series follows the doctors of Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital who deal with life-or-death consequences on a daily basis and together discover that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white, but rather in shades of grey.

"Grey's Anatomy" stars Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey, Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd, Sandra Oh as Cristina Yang, Justin Chambers as Alex Karev, Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, James Pickens, Jr. as Richard Webber, Sara Ramirez as Callie Torres, Eric Dane as Mark Sloan, Chyler Leigh as Lexie Grey, Kevin McKidd as Owen Hunt, Jessica Capshaw as Arizona Robbins, Kim Raver as Teddy Altman, Jesse Williams as Jackson Avery and Sarah Drew as April Kepner. "Grey's Anatomy" was created and is executive-produced by Shonda Rhimes. Betsy Beers, Mark Gordon, Krista Vernoff, Rob Corn, Mark Wilding, Tony Phelan, Joan Rater are executive producers. Grey's Anatomy is an ABC Studios production.
