Foxtel makes it easy to be lazy

By

Today is a historic day for couch potatoes everywhere, at least ones with Foxtel and a Windows desktop computer.

 

Never miss your favourite TV shows again thanks to the new Foxtel TV Guide Gadget launching today.

The software, developed jointly by Foxtel and Microsoft, makes the Foxtel TV Guide available directly from your PC desktop.

The seemingly simple-to-use application allows you to search for shows by keyword, view program summaries, and create a list of your favourite channels, ensuring you are always up-to-date with your Foxtel shows. Foxtel iQ and iQ2 subscribers have the added benefit of being able to set Reminders and Remote Record programs up to 14 Days in advance, from anywhere in the world.

The Foxtel TV Guide Gadget is available as a desktop application or as a 'Web Slice' through Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) web browser. As a Web Slice within IE8, the Foxtel TV Guide simply sits on your IE8 Favourites Bar and allows you to keep track of that 'slice' of the web throughout your day.

Foxtel Executive Director of Product and Sales, Patrick Delany said, 'With so many people now online for a significant period of time every day, the Foxtel TV Guide Gadget removes the need to search for the Foxtel TV Guide or even type in a URL. The Foxtel TV Guide Gadget is great for quickly searching for a program and recording it - if you're logged on you can search for your favourite show and send a Remote Record request all in a few seconds.'

'The new Foxtel TV Guide Gadget means you are always connected to Foxtel's 14 Day Online Guide and Remote Record functionality, letting you search for your favourite TV shows, program the Foxtel iQ or iQ2, set Reminder Alerts, and many more handy functions,' he said.

For Mac users, a Mac compatible version of the Foxtel TV Guide Gadget is expected to be available in the coming weeks.

The Foxtel TV Guide Gadget is available on any Windows PC running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 as a Desktop Application. For those using Internet Explorer 8 the ability to install the application as a web

INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV

iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.

We work with you to develop the message and conduct the interview or product review in a safe and collaborative way. Unlike other Tech YouTube channels, we create a story around your message and post that on the homepage of ITWire, linking to your message.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.
