India’s first 24-hour live and interactive gaming channel Play TV recently launched a new show called ‘Crisscross’. Telecast everyday between 2 pm and 3 pm, ‘Crisscross’ is a revamped version of the good old crossword.
Players can take part in the game no matter where they are using their mobile phones. Viewers are encouraged by the anchor to solve the crossword with the help of clues on screen. There are five Across clues and five Down clues, similar to that in a crossword puzzle. Players can send their answers via SMS, and the correct and fastest answers to the clues can fetch the participant up to Rs 10,000 in prize money.
Amit Goenka, Managing Director, Play TV, said, “Play TV is an interactive channel and ‘Crisscross’ is one such property that will maximise viewer involvement. We are optimistic about a wonderful response to this show.”
