New England-based provider Consolidated Communications has selected the MOBITV CONNECT Platform to power its new TV service, CCiTV.

The new service will deliver content from nearly 200 live US local, national, and premium channels such as A+E, Crown Media Family, Disney and ESPN Media, FOX, HBO, Turner, Viacom, local broadcast channels, regional sports networks, and others. It is available initially to subscribers in Southern Maine with plans to expand service later this year.

The MOBITV CONNECT platform is based on an interface that can be customised according to a service provider’s content and design preferences without the high cost of frequently replacing legacy set-top boxes in the home. By using IPTV and a "bring-your-own-device" method of service delivery, the platform is said to be a cost-conscious option that does not require customers to purchase additional hardware or incur setup fees. It includes on-demand, live TV, catch-up TV, unlimited network DVR and recommendations allows for real-time enablement of new technologies such as 4K Cloud DVR, replay TV and voice control. Customers can download the app and view television on any of their connected devices.

“We’re pleased to play such an integral role in Consolidated’s new offering and proud to bring the future of television to their subscribers," said Charlie Nooney, CEO and Chairman of app-based TV video delivery solutions firm MOBITV. “The customisable MOBITV CONNECT Platform, combined with the fibre-optic network and customer service from Consolidated Communications, makes for a powerful app-based TV solution that prioritizes the user experience.”

“CCiTV goes well beyond basic television services to provide next-gen streaming TV with the modern features our subscribers want," added Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management at Consolidated Communications. "Partnering with MOBITV allows us to deliver a cost-effective next-generation TV service and enhanced user experience. Consolidated also benefits from MOBITV’s IP delivery, which reduces the capital expense associated with additional hardware in the home and the ability to transition to the service without a major rip-and-replace installation.”
