Interactive TV Headlines Round-Up (I): Accedo, Foxtel, ActiveVideo, Comcast,, AFDESI, Alloy Digital, Clevver Media, BBC, Boxee, Brightcove, BrightLine, The CW, DirecTV

As most of you are probably aware, [itvt]'s daily news reporting has been on hiatus for the past few weeks, because our editorial team has been working on the TV of Tomorrow Show and then taking a post-event break. We plan to cover the news we have missed via a series of headline round-ups, and then to resume daily news production. 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.
