So far, a little more than half of the downloaded apps have been for iPhones, and 31 percent have been for iPads, MTV said. It is expecting to make an app for Android systems soon, a spokesman said Thursday.
MTV figured “Wait ‘Til Next Year” would be a good test case for how many people are interested in using the app for new content, since it’s a series that’s starting without any established stars. Beyond the football team, the series focuses on cheerleaders, fans, parents and others trying to keep up enthusiasm for a program that hasn’t won a game in five years.
It debuts on television on MTV on Friday, Nov 1.
