During recent years Smart TVs have been growing in popularity and is said to be the next big thing following the huge success of smartphones and tablets. Important aspects of Smart TVs are the interactive and especially the social aspects that can be incorporated into television broadcasting. This thesis explores the possibilities of creating social and interactive applications based on events that occur during live events. This is done byfirst creating a framework that incorporates modules for aggregating events from various data providers, social networking components and finally it contains a back-end for storing users' interactions. The thesis contains a study focusing on various XML techniques and different approaches to data integration to be able to choose the correct techniques needed for the aggregator. Finally a prototype is developed to act as a proof-of-concept for the developed framework, incorporating the social and interactive functionality found in the framework.
