CloverLeaf to Distribute Accedo's IPTV Games in North America
CloverLeaf Digital, a Brooklyn-based interactive TV applications developer that specializes in building and managing localized "walled-garden" services, has signed an agreement with Swedish IPTV games specialist, Accedo Broadband, to distribute the latter's Funspot games to North American independent telephone companies. The deal means that CloverLeaf will now offer two main interactive TV products: Funspot games and its own localized news and information walled garden, DotDaily. The company claims that this is the first time that North American independent service providers will be able to obtain both ITV games and walled garden services from a single, local supplier. "We are pleased to be able to add the Funspot games to our portfolio," CloverLeaf Digital founder and managing partner, Lawrence Brickman, said in a prepared statement. "Accedo is a major player in the international IPTV market, and we are excited to be able to bring their games to North America. Offering advanced two-way services such as Funspot and DotDaily delivers on the IPTV promise, and is the easiest and most economical way for service providers to add value for their subscribers and differentiate their video offering from their competitors."
Under the terms of its new deal with Accedo Broadband, CloverLeaf will offer 15 Funspot games, including, Sudoku, Black Jack, and other arcade, casino, strategy and children's games. The company claims that both the Funspot games and the DotDaily walled garden are supported by all major middleware platforms distributed in North America.
