Second screen apps and interactive features seem to be a growing trend for DVDs. HBOs taking that to the next level by allowing viewers to use the HBO Go app to enhance the viewing experience for Game of Thrones. Added content through the app isnt entirely new, though viewers will now be able to access the interactive elements from their iPads.

Game of Thrones returns this Sunday night for Season 2. Subscribers with access to or the HBO Go app in their iPad will be able to enjoy added features that play along with the episode. The interactive viewing experience, will be available on Sunday night for the premiere, but Im thinking it might be more enjoyable to watch during a second run-through of the episode. Using the feature while watching the episode the first time through seems like it would be like listening to an audio-commentary for a movie youve never seen before.

Heres the list of content set to be included in the alert feed:
Cast/crew commentaries with David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, George R.R. Martin, and more
Behind the scenes interviews with the cast and crew
Descriptions of new characters as they come into a scene
Info alerts providing back stories on specific scenes and character relationships
Detailed set photos and concept art from the series design team
Quotes from series that can be shared through social media
A map with key locations pinpointed
A guide to Game of Thrones houses

iPad users will be able to get social with the app, posting status updates on Facebook and Twitter while watching.
