HyperTV Networks, to enhance TV shows

Published on .

Viacom's Showtime Networks and HyperTV Networks, a subsidiary of ACTV, will enhance selected Showtime programming with synchronized, relevant Web content and community chat made possible by ACTV's HyperTV software solution for TV-Internet convergence. SHO.com and HyperTV Networks will collaborate on the development and delivery of unique TV-Internet convergence programming content for viewers of Showtime's Sci-Friday programming lineup and boxing franchises. Initially, a targeted pilot group of Showtime viewers will be able to access HyperTV during specific programs airing in the fourth quarter. Viewer response will dictate further expansion plans.
