About Two Way TV US Inc.
Two Way TV US, Inc. (formerly known as TWIN Entertainment) (the company), provides interactive television technology solutions and games to digital cable and satellite operators, as well as programmers and content owners, interested in developing interactive gaming capabilities. As part of its service, the company intends to provide customers with technical assistance in developing and integrating interactive games into branded virtual games channels. These virtual game channels will reach the consumer through digital satellite or cable distribution networks that support some of the digital television platforms, including Liberate, OpenTV, Wink and Microsoft TV. The game offering can be a stand alone game comprised of still graphics and animation, or an enhanced overlay to an existing TV program, such as a sports event or a game show and will depend on many factors including the set top box hardware and the middleware chosen by the operator.
Licensed from Two Way TV Limited, the companys digital TV technology enables real time broadcast of interactive applications during live program transmissions. Two Way TV Limited's proprietary patented tool suite also enables the creation of interactive game content for both applications synchronized to broadcasts and standalone virtual games.
The Company intends to commercially launch its first service in the fourth quarter of 2002 and has already conducted a trial of certain games on the Charter Communications network in St Louis in partnership with digeo Technology, Inc. (formerly digeo Broadband Technology, Inc.), using the Microsoft TV platform.
The Companys service will have a choice of games for the viewer at all times which may include trivia style games, casino games, word games, number games and other types of formats.
Principal Products and Services
The Companys core product currently is its games pack. The games pack has been developed for both Microsoft TV and Liberate platforms and has been used in trials on the Charter Network in St Louis. The games pack can be made available on different middleware platforms and can be tailored to meet the needs of its cable and satellite TV partners. The games will be accessed through a digital TV set-top box menu selection operated by a standard remote control and presented on the television screen. Digital set-top boxes are broadband devices allowing two-way high-speed data transfer.
Two Way TV Limited's existing games, which have been launched in the United Kingdom, Australia, Israel and Portugal, consist of two types of games: "standalone" games and enhanced television games.
Standalone games consist of strategy games, word and number puzzles, trivia quizzes and arcade-style games. They are full-screen games that sit within a virtual channel and are available for play either on-demand or on a scheduled basis. An on-demand game is available for a set amount of time, usually 24 hours. A scheduled game has a specific start time or "window," and the viewer must play during that time.
The end users for its games will be digital cable and satellite viewers. The Company has two main categories of potential customers:
Broadcasters and content owners who require any combination of its creative and application development skills, integration and management services or licenses to content creation and management tools.
Cable and satellite operators who either want it to develop an "own branded' interactive games offering for their customers or wish to license from it the technology and tools to develop their own interactive applications.
The Companys competitors include ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and Game Show Network. The Company also competes with Spiderdance and GoldPocket. Within the iTV space, there are some potential competitors such as Static (Playjam), VisiWare (LudiTV), Buzztime, MetaTV and Net4TV.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
