Short Take: PowerTV licenses SDK

PowerTV is licensing Spyglass's Client Software Development Kit (SDK) technology for the PowerTV operating system. It is the only operating system designed specifically for television based on open industry standards, according to the company. SDK entry-level pricing starts at $25,000 per year and includes 1,000 licenses for distribution, technical support, updates, documentation and object code. PowerTV OS-based boxes will be used in trials by four regional telephone companies, including Ameritech, Pacific Telesis, and BellSouth, as reported by Newsbytes.
