BRITISH TELCOM USES STAFF TO IRON OUT BUGS IN VOD TRIAL

By CBR Staff Writer

British Telecommunications Plc says 40 employees are now paying to use its interactive television service in Colchester and Ipswich. The first film screened was Some Like It Hot. British Telecom said it is going through the initial debugging process with these employees and the remaining 2,500 people the company needs for the full market trial are being recruited and this was expected to be completed by the end of last month. The Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line, manufactured by Westell International Inc, is being installed right now as well. British Telecom is not working to recruit new content providers at this stage, but is concentrating on providing services to the paying customers, it said. It expects to make an announcement on how the trial is going early next year, but said it would be too soon to say whether it will expand the service at that stage. The full trial ends in May of next year.
