The information corresponds to one or more products or services displayed in the video. Instructions are dynamically provided to or obtained by a device that displays the video from a location remote from the device. One portion of the instructions identifies the one or more products or services associated with the hot spot and is transmitted to or received at the device through a common channel as the video. Another portion of the instructions obtains the information corresponding to the one or more products or services and is transmitted to or received at the device through a different channel.
