This spring, NPO3 celebrates the 250th airing of the popular Dutch television program Keuringsdienst van Waarde with a series of special episodes that will include the viewers at home.
Keuringsdienst van Waarde (translated as Food Inspection Department) is a long-running Dutch television show where the show anchors investigate the truth behind information given to consumers by the food industry.
They take a critical look at potentially true or false information given by both big and small companies, sometimes fooling us with their clever ways of disguising the truth behind their products.
To celebrate the 250th airing of the show, NPO3 decided to make a series of five special Quiz episodes, challenging both Dutch celebrities in the studio as well as viewers at home to compete in a real-time play along on their smartphone or tablet.
The viewers are challenged to answer quite difficult questions on subjects regarding to food (foodsafety, food myths, food hypes etc), in a limited amount of time. After every episode a winner will be chosen.
We provided our Play Now! platform to be integrated in the NPO3 app, the so-called ‘channel app’. Without changing the look and feel of their app, a smooth gameplay can be integrated.
With the use of Play Now! the editors at NPO3 are able to design their quiz in accordance with the style of the show. The quiz content is easy to manage for the editors of the show; questions can be uploaded, along with images or other media. The timeline and order of the questions are also easily set up, thanks to Play Now!.
