Optik TV adds an interactive music app

Telus this week added a new application to their Optik service which their IPTV customers the ability to learn more about what is playing on their Galaxie music channels.

The new app can be launched from the Optik main menu with a click of the remote. Once running, customers can find out what’s playing on all the music channels, look at playlists, and view album art.

In addition to viewing album art for the song currently playing, subscribers will also be able to view the one up next, and previously played songs on each channel.

Another feature, which Stingray (providers of Galaxie Music Channels) says has been the most requested feature on Galaxie users’ wish lists, is the ability to review the playlist of the last 24 hours of songs played on each channel.

This has been around for a few weeks actually. Aside from being somewhat slow, i quite like this. Finally we can see what's playing.

It's almost going back to the future. The old Telus TV before Media Room/Optik (Minerva, Medusa?) had the current song feature too.
