Now that the 501 has the full "Dish Home" OpenTV stuff, I was curious when/if we were going to see broadcasters sending OpenTV stuff down the pipe.

The demos and stuff on the OpenTV website show applications like scoreboards and player bio information overlayed on a live video feed.

Being from a household of avid soccer fans, I think it would be faily cool when watching internation matches, for example, to pull up info on players I'm not familiar with.

Also, using OpenTV to provide multiple subtitle tracks, a la DVD, to stuff would be quite cool as well.
