Las Vegas -- NBCUniversal’s Bravo Media announced the launch of its first app for connected TVs, designed to engage fans with supplemental on-demand video, games, polls, information and social sharing across a range of the network’s shows and personalities.

Initially the app will be available across a range of devices, including Samsung Smart TVs and Smart Blu-ray players, Yahoo Widgets and Google TV.

The connected TV app, designed as a complement to Bravo programming, provides a customized user interface to give fans a way to build custom playlists based on their interests, favorite celebrities, shows or topics like Top Chef Quickfire challenges.
