announces the addition of FUEL TV as a NEXT.TV channel partner bringing programming attuned to the lifestyle and culture of skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, BMX, freestyle motocross, and wakeboarding. Currently available on cable and satellite, FUEL TV delivers top-level action sports events and competitions, featuring the best slams, the top tricks, and voices of the action sports industry and elite athletes to more than 24 million homes.
Launching multiple channels on NEXT.TV, FUEL TV shows will parallel the content currently airing on traditional television, featuring breaking news, original series, licensed films and more, all of which will focus on action sports lifestyle, athletes, celebrities and emerging musicians. The NEXT.TV service is now available via a web update on HP consumer notebooks shipping with Microsoft Windows Vista since January 2007. HP notebook users can access NEXT.TV through HP QuickPlay, allowing them to access hundreds of television and video programs with on-demand Internet television channels. As many HP consumer notebooks can be connected to TVs through an S-Video or HDMI connection, these users can bring the NEXT.TV experience into the living room. With the provided remote control, NEXT.TV content can be enjoyed from up to 10 feet away, adding a new dimension to the internet viewing experience.
