Interactive TV Headlines Round-Up (II): NBC Olympics, Nielsen, Rovi, SeaChange, Softel, XOR Media, Surf Channel, Time Warner Cable, Zlango, AMC
As most of you are probably aware, [itvt]'s daily news reporting was on hiatus for a few weeks, because our editorial team was working on the TV of Tomorrow Show and then taking a post-event break. We are covering the news we have missed via a series of headline round-ups, and will then resume daily news production. We expect it will take us a few more days 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.
