Set top box deal for Blinkx


by David Allen

The video search service, Blinkx, is looking to expand its scope by offering its technology to other providers of interactive TV and web services.

Its service indexes video from 450 sources including international broadcasters and YouTube.

Blinkx has taken a step forward with its plans by signing a deal with the interactive TV firm, Miniweb, which provides the satellite broadcaster BSkyB with the technology that powers interactive TV in Sky’s satellite set top boxes.

The deal may not give Blinkx a boost from the customers of Sky TV, but rather opens up new opportunities for the set top box, which for many people is still the centre of their entertainment.

It is sensible for satellite and cable operators to realise this and offer their subscribers the opportunity to view more content.
