Interactive TV Headlines Round-Up (II): Comcast RDK, DHX Media, PPTV, Flingo, Innovid, Fredio, Hulu, iN Demand, Jamie Oliver, Monterosa, Sky One, Twenty-Twenty Television, Shine, Endemol
As most of you are probably aware, [itvt]'s daily news reporting was on hiatus for several weeks, because our editorial team was working on TVOT NYC Intensive 2012 and then taking a post-event break. In order to catch up with the news we missed during that period--as well as the huge volume of news generated earlier this month by CES 2013--we are covering stories in headlines/round-up format (note: we have marked older stories with the date they originally broke). We expect it will take us a couple of weeks to catch up with all recent developments, so if you have sent us a press release or briefed us about a piece of news, and don't yet see it covered here, please bear with us.
