Grande Expands ICTV Rollout


ICTV Inc. said Grande Communications Inc. has expanded the rollout of its “HeadendWare” interactive-services product to its systems in Austin and San Antonio, Texas.

The system was first launched in Grande's San Marcos, Texas, cable system.

Using HeadendWare, Grande offers subscribers “Grande Interactive TV,” which includes news, sports, weather and information, plus games like “Diamond Mine” and “Bookworm.”

"We believe expanding Grande Interactive TV to Austin and San Antonio will increase our competitive edge," Grande vice chairman and CEO William Morrow said in a prepared statement.
