People are no longer tolerant of just sitting down to
focus on watching a movie on a streaming service.
They want something else going on to keep their
busy minds occupied to keep anxiety from taking
over their psyche. Likewise, people are becoming
more passive in their exploration of available
information (e.g. Reddit and Facebook just
presenting a feed of increasingly random and
useless crap). The environment is ripe for another
mode of jamming even more information into
people. This we bring you "stuff to watch on your
side screen while you are watching the movie". This
would be tailored content to go along with particular
movies at the right points in the film when you need
more more more. So during a quiet scene in a
romantic comedy, maybe you need some info about
birth control or male enhancement. Maybe during a
break in the killing in a war film you need info on all
the tanks from that era. And the obvious extension of
this will be a third screen where you can browse for
crap even more when two streams of crap becomes

||Unlikely, as this is information you already know, and furthermore are compelled to share with those around you. But a more anally-retentive data feed (For example highlighting the inconsistent unit insignia on the uniforms in Saving Private Ryan, or the Fallschirmjäger having the wrong sort of Mauser Kar98 in Valkyrie) would be appreciated by the true anorak-wearer.
