Interactive TV Headlines Round-Up (II): Civolution, Broadcom, Channel 4, Monterosa, Tubetime, M6, Atos, Cox, Bright House, TWC, Curious Pictures, PlaySquare, Warner Bros., Elemental Technologies

Because the [itvt] editorial team has been busy working on The TV of Tomorrow Show 2013 (June 25th-26th in San Francisco), we are covering stories in this issue in headlines/round-up format. Due to the volume of news generated by the NAB and MIPTV shows, we anticipate that it will take us a few days to catch up with all recent developments--so if your company has briefed us on an announcement or sent us a press release, and you don't see your news covered in this issue, please bear with us.
