Discovery Channel switches to Silverlight in a flash

International Web development firm @www has built a new user interface for TV broadcaster the Discovery Channel using Microsoft's Silverlight -- the software giant's challenger to Adobe's Flash.

@www client services director Nicholas Ratsey told Microsoft's ReMix Developers conference attendees in Melbourne today the Discovery Channel wanted to create a rich user experience for viewers. And according to Ratsey, "it has worked well".

The interface for the current text-only Never Miss TV video site -- set to go live on July 1 across southeast Asia -- offers a range of content accessible via a single click.

Additions such as roll-down menus, personalised playlists and smooth scrolling through content were completed just two weeks after @www developers took their first look at Silverlight.
