How do I get KBC Play Along?

Players should download latest version of SonyLIV app (available for Android on Play Store / for iOS on App Store for free). Once installed you can click on the ‘KBC PlayAlong’ banner or icon or channel name to access KBC PlayAlong. We would love for you do this before the broadcast starts so that you have enough time to get acquainted with the format and select your preferred language.

How much time will I get to answer the question?

In part it is to keep the spirit of the game alive, and in part it is to ensure that everybody gets level playing field. During each episode of the Show, the PAP will have to answer questions within the Stipulated Time. The Stipulated Time varies for each question, and will be a minimum of 15 seconds. However, in all the above cases, if the next question has been asked on the TV show, the timer of the current question will not extend beyond that time.

I did not select ‘Lock It Down’ after selecting the answer, would my answer be recorded?

Unfortunately no, ‘Lock It Down’ tells us that you are confident about the answer and want to submit that answer.

Which lifelines will I be able to use on KBC PlayAlong?

Unfortunately, players cannot get access to lifelines, due to process and technology issues.

I gave a wrong answer, do I have wait for the next contestant to come on TV?

No, you will have to wait till the next question is asked on the Play Along Game.

Would my points be only for a single episode? in KBC Play Along

Well, that’s where we are different. Your points are accumulated throughout the season. You can keep playing with all the contestants during this season of KBC. Though on TV only one person can win at a time, here you can win with every contestant.

How do I give you feedback about the KBC Play Along?

That’s really sweet of you!! Please email us at [email protected]

What happens if the network connection breaks or I get a call or SMS while I’m playing the KBC Play Along game?

If you get a call or SMS while playing, do not exit the SonyLIV app, but continue playing after your call has ended. However, the timer may have ended, in which case you will need to wait till the next question is asked on the TV show.

In the event network connection breaks for any reason, you may be disqualified from continuing to play one or more questions. PLEASE remember to stay in an area with a good network connection when playing this game! And do try and avoid lifts, basements and tunnels.

If I change my phone number, can I continue to play the KBC Play Along game?

Your phone number is your identity in the SonyLIV app. Using a different phone number would mean you are a new participant as far as we are concerned. So, to maximise your points, stick to one phone number! And don’t play with another person’s phone number – or that person will be the one winning the points and prizes, if any!

Can anyone play the KBC Play Along game?

Only persons who are 18 years or above on the date of playing, Indian citizens, and of sound mind are permitted to participate.
