MasterChef Portugal

Based on success stories

After the launch of the Secret Story app in the Portuguese channel TVI and the furor generated with the MasterChef app in Spain and Chile, TVI works with Hooptap again in order to provide the Portuguese audience with a highest level of interaction with the program MasterChef Portugal.

TVI makes a bid for gamification with the aim of engaging the audience of the program and boosting the TV experience. With it, Hooptap’s technology makes the creation of an app easier which transforms the dialogue with the audience, creating an interaction space to generate engagement with the program.

This project is yet another proof of the bet of the channel for including gamification in its content strategy. All of it with the goal of recreate the ideal scenarios to reach the engagement of the TV audience. The space was monetized with advertisers that included their content in the strategy of the MasterChef Portugal app. Users could interact with the content of the sponsoring brand through games, news or advices by El Corte Inglés. The content of the sponsoring brand has been an essential part of the content strategy of the MasterChef Portugal app to send non-intrussive messages to the audience and give a sense and a structure to the contents since the beginning.
