HQ Trivia comes to your living room on Apple TV

Just so long as you're home when the game show starts.

Game shows got their start on TV, so it would only make sense that a modern variant like HQ Trivia would be playable on a TV, right? Right. Accordingly, Intermedia Labs has released an Apple TV version of HQ Trivia that brings the live, win-real-money experience to a bigger screen. It'll seem very familiar if you've played the mobile, but the game is unsurprisingly well-suited to TV -- Scott and other hosts don't have to be squished into the confines of a phone display.

There's no mention of corresponding versions for Android TV or smart TV interfaces. It seems like a natural fit with an Apple TV version available, though. The one drawback to this version is simply that it's tied to a single location. Just like old-school game shows, you'll have to be at home at the right time if you want to tune in to HQ Trivia in all its TV-quality glory.
