Worldwide internet TV station suffers job cuts...

Network of the World, the ambitious web-based interactive TV service, is facing major cutbacks. The Financial Times reports that 340 jobs are to go and expenditure will be halved to $100m.

It enjoyed the benefit of rapidly rising internet stocks and took over Cable and Wireless HK last August.
