WorldGate launches Go!TV Games Network
WorldGate is jumping into the interactive gaming sector with the introduction of its Go!TV Games Network.
The interactive network enables gamers in the same house or different households to go head-to-head using WorldGate's ultra-thin client architecture. Players also can participate in online chats.
Included with the network is the Go!TV Gameroom, a customized 24-hour video programming channel. The channel will be hosted by "game jockeys" that will promote the interactive network. The hosts also will provide game tips, upcoming game announcements and video vignettes on monthly leader-board winners.
WorldGate recently rolled out its Go!TV Links service, which is designed to make every program across all channels instantly interactive. Operators can deploy the service, which also is based on WorldGate's Channel HyperLinking technology, to today's digital set-top box converters using their current WorldGate iTV headend equipment. The Go!TV Games Network also can be deployed to current digital STBs.
