OpenTV Hits 50M Mark


OpenTV Corp. said Wednesday that 50 million set-tops with its middleware have been deployed as of the end of 2004.

The interactive-TV company said its middleware has been deployed in set-top boxes issued by digital-cable, direct-broadcast satellite and terrestrial networks.

“I believe that surpassing 50 million deployed set-top boxes worldwide creates a base that provides us a significant opportunity to leverage and extend our suite of interactive-TV content, applications and technology solutions over the coming years,” chairman and CEO James A. Chiddix said in a prepared statement.
