Features: The Official Website

 

In 2001 Carlton Interactive (with design elements by Liquid TV) launched a fantastic online site based on the show. It was originally to be found at www.crossroadshotel.co.uk but after a few months the URL changed to itv.com/crossroads – although the site was hosted at carlton.com.  The following images come from the original Crossroads site and show some of the features that were available…

 

 

 

 

The homepage gave opportunities for visitors to vote on current storylines, catch up on recent events, play “bar games”, visit the HABBO Crossroads hotel for an online chat and send e-cards (images of which are available on this site)…

 

 

The gallery contained some publicity images, some large “wallpaper” and the odd video clip…

 

 

The “who’s who” contained Character profiles (available elsewhere on this site)

 

 

Each day there was a detailed episode synopsis and opportunites to talk about the show in the dedicated Crossroads forums.

 

 

The HABBO Hotel was very much styled on furniture and décor of the reception Crossroads.

Even down to Kate’s jugs – apparently.

 

 

Examples of on-screen promotion for the official site – featuring both URL’s. At various points there were also competitions including a “Who killed Jill?” story writing feature and even a chance to visit the set!
