Interactive Sticker TV allows buddy users to watach the same TV show from remote locations and using their Internet access to overlay "stickers" on the screen. Stickers can be in the form of cartoon bubbles of actors' heads, comments written directly over the screen, boxing gloves that come out and punch dumb characters, and whatever other "sticker" clip art is provided in the application. Stickers will not only be static, but also 3D and in relevant instances use video and audio streams (e.g.: the boxing glove could be a video stream of a famous boxer's glove punching someone with a loud cartoon-type thud playing in the background).
