Rage games hits Sky screens


06-09-2001

UK computer games firm Rage has signed a deal to provide games to millions of BSkyB customers.

The agreement will give Rage access to 5.3 million Sky digital customers, who'll have the chance to play a new game - Denki Blocks! - before anyone else. The game will be released on other games platforms later this year.



It will be available on a pay-to-play basis with Rage receiving a share of income.



The news was announced at the European Computer Trade Show.



Jon Florshiem, MD of Sky Interactive, said: 'This agreement with Rage is further evidence of Sky's commitment to delivering the widest choice of interactive channels and services to over 5.3 million digital satellite homes across the UK.'



Rage boss Paul Finnegan added: 'We are delighted to have entered into this relationship with Sky and believe that the exposure gained via Sky digital satellite will help us further understand the opportunities within the interactive television market.'
