HSN announced the nation’s first shop-by-remote system for digital TV customers. It will be available in New York City and Hawaii, where it’s been tested in some homes. Other major cities will get access in coming months.
Viewers who have pre-registered credit card information with the company can use the service. No special remote or cable box is needed. Digital TV companies get a cut of the network’s sales.
Editor’s note: A new reason to ‘hide’ the remote.
