Hybrid Smart TV app Pixie

I always thought the beauty of Smart TVs is not that I can run apps on them, just like on my tablet or phone but with a bigger screen and a TV remote, but that they could merge with running TV programs, forming a kind of "hybrid TV app". One New York startup called Pixie aims to revolutionize the "news ticker" used on linear TV and I think that's more intriguing than any "normal" smart TV app I have seen so far (most of them being basically being video players on TV).
