Interactive TV Headlines Round-Up (II): SourceKnowledge, blurbIQ, Comcast, TV5Monde, DDD, Hampoo, Dish, NimbleTV, Envivio, FanHero, Hulu, Humax, Machinima, MediaMall Technologies

As most of our readers are probably aware, [itvt]'s news reporting was on hiatus for several weeks, because our editorial team was working on TVOT 2013 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 few 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.
