Digital TV technology specialist InView Interactive and set-top box manufacturer Vestel have inked a deal which will see the Teletext Extra branded EPG service delivered to 8 million boxes.

The InView EPG is currently available on over 5 million Freeview boxes, with the extra 3 million being added over the next few months.

The InView EPG offers viewers a detailed 14-day programme schedule across all Freeview channels. It also features an on-screen guide and direct links to digital Teletext services.

Furthermore, the service allows broadcasters to promote their programmes, individual channels, or channel bouquets through a unique “Guest Channel”.

The service is currently being trialled by ITV, with adopters including Channel 4, Virgin Media and Dave.

The deal coincides with InView's third year of business.
