Published on .

NetChannel, a new Web service aligned with TV maker Thomson Consumer Electronics and Oracle Corp., on Monday announces initial content providers including A&E Television Networks' A&E and History Channel as well as Court TV. Other partners include Intuit, Internet Shopping Network and iVillage.

NetChannel will use the Web mainly to deliver custom content to TV sets. Consumers can use the service to log onto the Net, but that's secondary. "We're not trying to be a Web surfing device," said John Stuckey, VP-marketing at NetChannel. "We're about making the television more fun."
