Zeebox TV Companion App Rebranded As Beamly, Adds Chat Rooms Hosted By Reality And YouTube Stars

Remember Zeebox? You know, the NBC and Comcast-backed app that promised to bridge the gap between television and social media? You could be forgiven for forgetting - the app warranted exactly one post from us 18 months ago, and hasn't made any significant changes to get back on our radar. Today the app has been re-branded as "Beamly," a move announced with a swanky app redesign.

All the core functions of Zeebox seem to have made it over to the new Beamly app: the basis of the experience is still the TV schedule, which will learn your tastes and recommend new shows.

[New Game] Upopa's Adorable, Terrifying Twitch Shooter Upgrades To Lasers And Aliens In Hopeless: Space Shooting

Hopeless: The Dark Cave was a striking little twitch game, made memorable by the juxtaposition of adorable little Marshmallow Peep creatures and the hulking, snarling monsters that wanted to eat them. In that title your only defense was old-fashioned lead (which was occasionally and tragically collected by the peeps themselves), but in the sequel, you get access to something with a little more pop. Hopeless: Space Shooting takes the original game and covers it with DayGlo colors and Buck Rogers lasers.

They're perfect for the wait at the doctor's office, waiting on a date to show up for dinner, or any scenario of the sort.
