American Interactive Media Inc, the Medford, New Jersey company with the television set-top box technology licensed from UK-based company MSU Ltd that wants to put your television set onto the Internet for much less than $500 (CI No 2,941) has progressed with its plans to the point of signing CompuServe Corp to a multi-year agreement to become its Internet access provider. Under the deal, buyers of American Interactive’s set-top Internet access device, the price of which has now fined down to less than $400 (probably more than $400 with tax), will be offered unlimited access to the Internet and World Wide Web through CompuServe’s Sprynet Internet access service. The access device includes hand-held remote control, and comes preloaded with a browser, electronic mail, a dialer and a printer driver. Users will get access to the Internet via a customized Internet channel that is being developed by American Interactive and CompuServe. There is no date for the launch of the new product.
