Sun invests in interactive TV firm

Sun Microsystems has invested an undisclosed amount in Canal+ Technologies, the companies said Monday. Canal+ will also use Sun's Java software for its interactive TV products and will promote Java's use in advanced digital set-top boxes. Java lets Canal+ software run on a wider variety of set-top boxes than it could otherwise, Canal+ said in a statement. Thomson Multimedia and Sony already are investors in Canal+, a subsidiary of Vivendi Universal.
