The mobile application will serve cast and crew information to users and act as a second screen for programming across more than 160 channels.
"With more than a quarter of a billion people who have used Shazam worldwide, no other app has our scale when it comes to offering the opportunity to engage with the media that interests them the most, whether it's music or television," said Shazam CEO Andrew Fisher.
"And now, that experience is even better than before, enabling people in the US to engage with any show at any time."
Shazam, which built its reputation in music identification, has been trialling TV support for sometime. Shazam-enabled adverts have aired in several territories, including the UK, but British users will have to wait for the new update.
The company pledged to introduce TV tagging in various European territories - such as the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany and France - over the coming months.
Shazam now has more than 250 million users worldwide, with 2 million additional subscribers reportedly signing up each week.
