MarketWatch: In-depth global business coverage Tapuz People Ltd. said Sunday it was in talks to license its BlogTV platform to a British media company for operation in Britain. The company declined to identify the media company or to disclose terms of the deal. Tapuz shares jumped 11% to NIS 6.96 on the news. Gil Bul, chief executive of the BlogTV subsidiary, said the service enables users with Webcams and broadband connections to create their own shows and broadcast them live over the Net. Viewers can search for and access the shows via cellphone, PC or any broadband-connected device. The service is free to users. Bul declined to discuss the company's business model. "The live aspect is very exciting," said Bul, 46, who joined Tapuz six months ago. "It's the real reality TV ... Everyone can do his own show." BlogTV has been operating in Israel for two years. Bul said he'll look for other markets, as well. MarketWatch: In-depth global business coverage
