Ok, the price of this stock is just a joke right now. I got some more today at 10.
Given the future we all expect from ITV and the installed base in Europe, its hard to go wrong here.
regards to the longs,

OpenTV says software now deployed in 16 mln homes
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 21 (Reuters) - Interactive television software maker OpenTV Corp. (Nasdaq:OPTV - news) on Monday said its software is now installed in 16 million digital set-top boxes worldwide, more than double the amount deployed a year earlier.

Much of the growth was due to its pacts with DirectTV Latin America, EchoStar and BSkyB.

In the quarter ended March 31, the company said its deployments rose 30 percent from 1.6 million in the first quarter.

The company has been trying to grow its share of the cable market and sell more sophisticated software to its existing customers. OpenTV's software enables electronic programming guides, e-mail and e-commerce via set-top boxes.

Separately, OpenTV also said in a statement that Philips Semiconductors, a unit of Philips Electronics , plans to use its software in its home entertainment Nexperia line of products -- a source of future deployment growth.

OpenTV shares closed up 3.6 percent, or 35 cents, at $10.10 before the news.

We are on fire today and it is helping LDIG as well. The spillover affect into IATV should be coming (I hope).

OpenTV and ACTV Complete Integration of Software for Interactive Applications

ACTV's Interactive TV Products Available on OpenTV Enabled Set-Top Boxes

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 27, 2001-- OpenTV (Nasdaq and AEX: OPTV), the world's leading interactive television and media solutions company, and ACTV Inc. (Nasdaq: IATV - news), a digital media company specializing in interactive television and enhanced media technologies, today announced that ACTV's proprietary technology has been integrated into OpenTV's interactive television platform.

OpenTV's interactive television middleware for both today's and tomorrow's next generation set-top boxes is expected to include support for SpotOn(TM), the targeted advertising solution that is jointly marketed by ACTV, OpenTV and Motorola through ACTV's Digital ADCO subsidiary; One to One TV, ACTV's individualized programming technology; and HyperTV®, ACTV's system for synchronizing television programming with online content.

The integration provides ACTV's enhanced TV and individualized programming solutions to be available through digital set-tops that use the OpenTV middleware. The initial integration effort is on the Pace Set-Top Box, and the companies plan to integrate their combined technologies on additional set-top boxes over the next several months.

OpenTV's interactive television middleware is currently deployed in more than 16 million cable, satellite, and digital terrestrial set-top boxes, and enjoyed by over 40 million viewers worldwide, including subscribers of EchoStar in the U.S., BSkyB in the United Kingdom, ntl in France, and DIRECTV Latin America.

The integration of ACTV technology is expected to create new revenue-generating opportunities for service providers. For example, with SpotOn(TM) targeted advertising, advertisers can target messages seamlessly to individual set-top boxes, allowing viewers to watch television commercials that match their needs. Neighbors watching the same program can see different commercials based on their demographic information.

''As a longtime partner providing interactive TV solutions, we are excited to include the innovative technology of ACTV in our current and future OpenTV platforms,'' said James Ackerman, CEO of OpenTV. ''We believe that SpotOn(TM), One to One TV and HyperTV® solutions will prove to quickly create greater value for OpenTV customers.''

''OpenTV's established leadership position worldwide will allow us to capitalize on the current population of digital set-top boxes while positioning us for growth on future interactive platforms,'' said ACTV president and CEO David Reese. ''We look forward to promoting SpotOn(TM) and One to One TV across OpenTV's customer base while pursuing new broadband opportunities for HyperTV®.''

OPTV REC - FYI - AXXel
Opentv Corporation Class A [OPTV-13.12]. A break of $12 would put us to the buy side. If you want to talk back to your television set [and who doesn't given the icky stuff on it? If so, OPTV is your company. Revenues on a ramp-not so earnings…yet. OPTV designs, develops, markets and supports software and
related components to enable digital interactive television worldwide.
For the 3 months ended 3/31/01, revenues rose from $10.9M to $22.4M. Net loss rose from $30.7M to $130.9M.

A jump off the base was caused by this: "…struck a deal to become the first
interactive-television company to crack the China market. The Mountain View, Calif., company's agreement with Shanghai Cable Network, one of the largest cable-TV systems in the world, will mark the first interactive television system in China.

We like the base-after all, it's not any $225 a share [can U believe it…in March, '00?] and we like the fact that we are not likely to get this much lower after this period of base building that began in '00. Strong Buy-for spec investors with a seat belt. UPDATE 7.19.01: $11.96. No change. We have the break of $12…now how far will the break take us? We want some volume here…we will break ten for the buy signal but only on volume to the downside please.
