Interactive TV Headlines Round-Up (III): Livefyre, Bottle Rocket, Watchwith, Bravo, BBC Worldwide, Monterosa, "Top Gear," MTVu, Nintendo, TiVo, Netflix, QuickPlay, BlackBerry, Rentrak, RADiUS-TWC

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, 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.
