Internet push media company PointCast
announced June 24 it would discontinue the Asian Edition of the PointCast Network on July 1. PointCast kicked off the Asian Edition of the PointCast Network in February 1997 as a joint venture with China Internet Corp. PointCast has a version of PointCast Japan, but it blamed the Asian economic crisis for its inability to form a joint venture company to run the Asian Edition. Viewers of the U.S. edition of the PointCast Network will be unaffected by this change.
