MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Enghouse Networks today announced it is partnering with Access Communications Co-operative of Regina, Saskatchewan to provide a fully hosted, next generation TV service for Canadian service providers.
Service providers upgrade their TV platform for two main reasons: cost efficiency and the ability to offer superior user experience to consumers. To date, deploying such solutions has meant significant capital outlays, revenue growth delays and high risk.
The Enghouse TV solution offers operators a state-of-the-art TV service for their customers with low start-up costs, swift time to revenue and low deployment risk. That brings a next generation solution within easy reach of small and medium sized operators across Canada.
"We are excited to partner with Enghouse networks to deliver a secure and customer-driven video solution," said Jeffrey De Sarno, CTO of Access Communications. "As a co-operative, we are committed to delivering exceptional entertainment services to the communities we serve. We now provide our subscribers with a comprehensive TV experience, and this initiative enables other operators nationwide to offer video solutions that are just as robust and secure."
The solution offers operators access to over 200 channels of live TV, catch-up and restart services, network DVR and comprehensive, on-demand content. The service is highly configurable, ensuring that the widest range of market segments can be easily addressed.
"The Enghouse solution offers operators the ability to target market segments with high value TV services," said Sunil Diaz, General Manager of Enghouse Networks. "Through the partnership with Access Communications, we can offer these services at unmatched time to revenue and low deployment risk. We already have a number of operators signed up for the service and expect others to join in the coming months."
