It's now porting that success across the pond—U.K. broadcasting giant ITV (the main commerical TV station for Britain, now 57 years old) and Shazam just partnered up for some exclusive benefits.

Then, anyone watching can interact with the ads using their Shazam app, and goodies on electronic offer will include free downloadable music, entry into contests, and access to special content.
