Australian pay-TV provider FOXTEL has launched its next generation platform in collaboration with OpenTV. Powered by OpenTV middleware and using OpenTV’s latest interactive TV technology, the operator’s new platform will offer over 200 channels, 15 HD channels, and new navigation features.

Open TV’s new “iSuggest” interactive TV guide provides TV program recommendations using a gallery of posters with access to detailed synopsis information. The new “Record Me” feature sends shows or movies straight to subs’ iQ planner via a single button push during on-air promotions. Sky News Active and Weather Active applications deliver new features such as local news feeds and daily weather forecasts.
