Caribbean operator LIME has engaged IPTV technology provider Amino to supply enhanced set-top boxes to support the rollout of pay-TV services.
LIME is a full service telecoms provider to the communities of 13 Caribbean islands: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, the Turks and Caicos islands, Barbados and the Cayman Islands.
For customers in the latter two territories, LIME TV delivers over 100 channels of pay-TV and video-on-demand (VOD) including a wide range of entertainment encompassing local and international news, premium content channels, lifestyle and sports.
The new service will roll out Amino's A140 and A540 set-top boxes which are claimed to be able to provide a better 'carrier class' Wi-Fi signal to deliver entertainment around the home. They are also designed to enable customers to set up pay-TV for themselves reducing the need for service engineers.
"Pay-TV is an important and growing service for LIME and we are keen to introduce improvements like these set-top boxes which help improve the experience we are delivering to our customers," explained vice president of TV and entertainment Dianne Bissoon.
