InfoSpace and ICTV have hooked up to design, optimize and deliver InfoSpace's broadband services and iTV applications through ICTV's digital broadband platform.
According to the companies, InfoSpace plans to integrate a number of its broadband services and iTV applications with the ICTV digital broadband platform, including applications like search and reference and finance and games.
Any application running on the ICTV platform can run on any digital set-top box and the system does not require a middleware application. ICTV uses a frequency reuse solution and is scalable on any two-way HFC cable system. And all standard Internet content and applications work on the ICTV system, including broadband content requiring large bandwidth or advanced plug-ins.
