The Oxygen Channel is launching a new social TV platform for fans and it is making its big debut in two days. The Platform is called Oxygen Connect and will offer web exclusives, challenges for incentives and a central place to vote during competition shows. Oxygen Connect is set up so it will be woven into the second-screen experience for the ‘Glee Project.’ 'The Glee Project' is an American reality television series from Oxygen and serves as an audition for the Fox TV series, ‘Glee.’ The winner will receive a seven-episode arc in the following season of the show. Original air date was June 12th, 2011 and is moving into its second season which premieres on June 5th, 2012. Subscribers looking to take advantage of Oxygen’s social TV platform will be able to sign up on May 18th, 2012 and receive access to a special viewing of the web-only series, ‘The Glee Project’. All it takes to sign up is have a registered Facebook account that you can sign up with and create a profile. Each week during ‘The Glee Project’, viewers will be able to participate in missions to earn custom badge points to create a more personalized viewing experience. The points will unlock sneak peeks and live chats with contenders. The amount of points you get may even add up to enough to get you a face-to-face meeting with contestants. On the platform ‘Glee Project’ fans can use Twitter hashtags to vote for their favorite contenders during what the channel is calling “Last Chance Performances.” Other Viewers will be able to see votes as they come in real time with the top vote-getter winning a featured spot on Oxygen Connect. “Tuning in live each week and voting is a key way of earning exclusive badges and ensuring their favorite performance gets unlocked online for a full week,” Kavanagh says.
