OpenTV Corp. Wednesday named 30-year cable-industry veteran James A. Chiddix executive chairman of its board of directors.
Chiddix succeeds Michael Zeisser, who remains on the board.
Zeisser was named interim chairman in January after Peter C. Boylan III resigned.
Most recently, Chiddix was president of MystroTV, an interactive-video group within Time Warner Inc. He served as senior vice president and chief technical officer for Time Warner Cable for 15 years.
