PlayJam, the TV games service that puts casual games on BSkyB (NYSE: BSY) and Virgin Media (NSDQ: VMED), is about to add Freeview to its platform lineup by releasing its own branded DTT box. The £20 so-called PlayBox will include over 50 games from operator Static plus the free-to-air Freeview channels, seven-day EPG and content including news, reviews, weather and travel – running off Static’s Trove operating system. Freeview is certainly proving popular with digital TV adopters – Static’s challenge is enticing potential casual gamers amongst TV users who don’t necessarily want to buy a full games console.

    freeview either built in to your tv or with a top box is an absolute rip off, ive had it for years and the programme,s havent changed in all that time. woh is running the show they should be sacked, if i was selling something to the public and it got as stale as freeveiw i would have been fired years ago. so come on whoever is in charge and giveus some more programmes to choose from, there again pigs might fly……..
