TV Guide tests interactive

Published on .

TV Guide will publish its Sept. 30 Greater Omaha issue on U S West Telechoice, an interactive TV test currently running in the Omaha area. The interactive edition will include the weekly time and program listings, and perhaps include advertising in the future. ``The use of Baby Bells as distribution outlets for video heralds a new era for the television consumer,'' said Steve Sonsky, managing editor for programming of TV Guide. U S West's one-year market trial of video dial-tone services began Aug. 31 in Omaha and will eventually have about 50,000 customers.
