Things that go beep in the night

  • Tune in to see live coverage as people try to survive our haunted smart house
  • Spot our ghost and you could win a Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

Around this time every year, haunted houses spring up from nowhere, all ready to give you a fright. This year, we wanted to make one with a difference – a haunted smart house, powered by technology that you can buy in any O2 store.

So, that’s what we’ve done. And, because it’s a smart house, everyone can experience it.

The house in Shoreditch will be visited by selected victims on Wednesday 29 October, but they won’t be only ones who are in on the action. We’ve set up a LiveScream (like a live stream, but spookier – get it?) witch you can watch from anywhere.

Tune in HERE from 1pm to witness our victims’ reactions – live – as they venture around the haunted smart house and try to get out unscathed. But that’s not all. As well giving you the chance to watch someone soil themselves live on the internet, we’ll also be coffin up a smartphone for two lucky viewers.

To be in with a chance of winning Samsung’s most beautiful smartphone to date – the Galaxy Alpha – just keep your eyeballs peeled for Maggie, our house ghost. When you spot her, grab a screenshot and you’re halfway towards winning that prize.

Once you’ve captured a pic, you can enter on Twitter by tweeting your ghostly image using #O2possessed, or on Facebook by commenting with the word GHOST! on THIS post (where you’ll also be able to watch the LiveScream), and the exact time you saw Maggie.

Your entry needs to be in before the witching hour, so the cut off is 11.59pm on Wednesday 29 October.

We’ll pick our winners on Thursday 30 October and contact them by DM on Twitter, so make sure you follow us when you enter the competition. If not, we’ll need a Ouija board to contact you. We’re just not down with that.

If you’re on Facebook, watch your notifications – if you’re the winner, we’ll like and reply to your comment.

All of our competitions have terms and conditions – even the undead ones. You can read them at
