Entone FusionTV® Continues to Drive Broadband TV Growth
CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Entone, Inc., a leading provider of Hybrid TV and Connected Home solutions, announced today that its FusionTV® solutions will enable PC Telcom to offer an enhanced Pay-TV service that combines live HDTV and cloud services to their broadband subscribers without the costs and hassles associated with content acquisition.
Entone's FusionTV enables service operators to deliver an advanced TV service over any broadband network. Broadband subscribers get a richer TV experience that blends off-air programming from local broadcasters, DVR with cloud-based over-the-top (OTT) services, including streaming video on demand from VUDU along with popular media services such as Facebook, Flickr, Picasa and Twitter.
"To retain and capture broadband customers in this fast-changing marketplace, we needed a solution that we can deploy quickly over our existing broadband network while also allowing us to deliver video at a competitive price," commented Vince Kropp, GM and CEO at PC Telcom. "By bundling our existing broadband service with OTT, this takes the market appeal of our broadband service to a whole new level. With FusionTV, we can now provide a richer and more compelling service. Our customers get a cost-effective, personalized viewing experience that they can't get from satellite or traditional TV services—further strengthening the relationship with our subscribers."
PC Telcom has been providing telecommunications services to Colorado's Phillips County for over 100 years. With the busiest shopping season coming up, PC Telcom, a Radio Shack authorized retail dealer, is launching the holiday season with a FusionTV bundle offer. PC Telcom customers will get more than just a broadband service. They will have access to the world's largest library of first-run movies and shows, watch all the major networks in HD, and get a full-featured DVR to record their favorite shows.
"PC Telcom is demonstrating that service operators can harness and capitalize on the disruptive potential of OTT while also taking back control of their broadband network. PC Telcom subscribers get the best of both worlds – live HDTV programs from local broadcasters, DVR and high-value OTT content through a seamless operator-branded user interface," said Andrew Morton, VP of Broadband TV Solutions at Entone. "We look forward to supporting PC Telcom as they continue to grow their business."
