Thanks, I completely forgot about that. My old GoogleTV box had a nice screen saver type app that showed my Twitter feed. That is more valuable than the scores these days. I like to have various fan and official tweets going during sporting events on my 2nd screen. Having that on a 2nd large screen would be the most valuable. And that may not be as expensive for you or the end user either?

Twitter is fairly easy - for flat screens that is a free widget in our platform where you can just pick a hashtag or user to follow.

Same with our web based ticker platform Twitter is free since we don't have any licensing fees to pay.

here are all of the different types of search strings you can do in twitter to define your own feed http://www.risedisplay.com/solutions/twitter-tickers/

any other thoughts on content out there?

As the OP of this thread, and the fact that I've recently moved, I'm looking to refresh my setup with something a little more "2015-ish" As others have mentioned, cost is a concern (the $20/month isn't too bad - would be nice if that could be split up based on use), but I'm wondering what could be done via software/hardware in a residential application to feed the score data into a "window" of sorts (like a small banner at the bottom of the screen or a side panel) on an existing TV.

Ryan - What other information do you have about your platform that supports this or the more standard ticker display?

For a video type display check out this free, open source software at www.risevision.com, there is a store with premium widgets for sports data that is licensed but there are free RSS widgets if you can find your own free feed.

If you install this on a computer (windows, linux, chromebox) and hook it to a monitor or large flat panel you can format the screen however you want.

As for more standard tickers, unfortunately at this point in time I would say we are probably too expensive for most home users given we are a US made product and focused on higher end custom applications. We have started to release a basic Easy Ticker product at http://www.risedisplay.com/easy-ticker/ that you could take a look at and there is an overview of our software there.

I hope that helps.
