Murdoch is extending his influence over digital TV!

Thomson is selling its MediaHighway division to NDS for 60 million euros. MediaHighway is a so-called 'middleware' used in digital TV set top boxes and is the remaining part of Canal+ Technologies. Thomson has already sold the conditional access part of Canal+ Technologies to Kudelski for 240 milion euros.

Interestingly enough BSkyB uses a rival middleware, OpenTV, in its digiboxes.
