Gallic interactive TV bows

World Brief

The SES group, Europe’s Astra satellite system operator, and Vivendi Universal unit Canal Plus Technologies have launched a digital video broadcasting multimedia home platform version of the Astra mosaic.

The mosaic shows several channels onscreen at the same time, which allows users to choose which they wish to watch. The interactive version can be received on a set-top box or an integrated TV. The new mosaic has been conceived to accelerate the growth of an open market across Europe and beyond for interactive content, similar to open cable in the U.S.
