Source Signs on WideOpenWest1/23/2001 7:55 AM Eastern
Overbuilder WideOpenWest LLC inked a three year deal Tuesday to deploy Source
Media Inc.'s suite of interactive-television applications in Denver, the
corporate backyard of the area's cable incumbent, AT&T Broadband.
Under terms of the deal, WOW will begin offering Source's interactive program
guide, 'SourceGuide,' and its interactive portal, 'LocalSource,' via digital
set-top boxes in March.
Insight Communications Co. Inc. and Everest Connections Corp., another
overbuilder, are Source's only other interactive-TV-service customers.
Still, Source's most recent deal failed to impress investors. The vendor's
sagging stock, which is in danger of being delisted from the NASDAQ exchange,
was down $0.03 to $1 per share in midday trading Tuesday.
