App lets ‘Sons of Anarchy’ viewers buy while watching
Watching a show about an outlaw motorcycle club apparently has a way of bringing out people’s fashion sense.
News Corp. TV channel FX is teaming up with sister movie studio 20th Century Fox on an iPad app that will follow along during airings of the hit show “Sons of Anarchy” and offer ways to buy products that appear on-screen, according to the Associated Press.
Some of the items include “Gimme Props Reaper Gold Rings,” which are exact replicas of ones used in the biker gang show, and boot-cut jeans from 7 For All Mankind.
The app, called “SOA Gear,” is set to launch Nov. 1, the same day the ninth episode of the current fourth season will air. The app also will work with Blu-ray discs of season three.
The app follows along by picking up on audio clues in the show, or through a timer the user can start when the show begins. Alternatively, users can flip through offerings manually.
