Play 3D Golf In Real Time With Live TV

Some of the coolest technology I've heard of lately is the new Golf Launchpad/XTV Experience, which allows users to play along with their favorite golfers during televised tournaments.

While watching a PGA tour event on television, viewers can use the Golf Launchpad/XTV Experience to virtually play and compete with their own clubs, on the same course, at the same time – and all from the comfort of their own home.

XTV Ready is plug-and-play software that makes DVRs the center of the home entertainment network by simplifying content transfer. It enables subscribers to download content securely to a variety of CE devices – such as a game console – using a USB port on the set-top box. With XTV Ready, subscribers can enjoy a wider range of services while operators increase revenues for better ROI on their content.

By connecting the XTV Ready DVR to Golf Launchpad, together these companies have created an entirely new gaming experience.

Golf Launchpad/XTV Experience will be available in June of 2007 from local cable and satellite TV providers.
