Oz’s Austar game for web

World Brief

Sam Chisholm, former topper of Rupert Murdoch’s BSkyB and Kerry Packer’s Nine Network, has inked a deal under which UnitedGlobalCom’s rural Australian feevee operator Austar will carry Two Way TV, an interactive games channel that he chairs.

Chisholm’s Two Way TV is thought to be negotiating deals with the urban feevee platforms of Rupert Murdoch’s Foxtel and Cable & Wireless’ Optus, both of which are in the process of altering their channel line-ups.

Optus is in advanced talks with Oz animation house Energee Entertainment to produce a children’s channel, while Nickelodeon will cease sharing its channel on Foxtel with Nick at Nite in favor of round-the-clock moppet programming later this month.
