connectiVISION Digital Networks, an IPTV provider for hospitals, doctors' offices, clinics and care centers in the United States, has added programming from IC Places to its lineup.

connectiVISION offers national broadcast feeds as well as news, weather and sports. The IC Places offerings will liven up the mix with shows like The Hollywood Fast Lane and Travel Tech.
Additional IC Places-produced shows will be added to the schedule as its newly acquired Punch TV Networks begins its fall season. "The addition of IC Places to our programming mix provides ConnectiVISION with top-tier programming that will enhance the viewer experience. IC Places produces excellent shows that will engage, entertain and inform our audience," David Tetreault, COO at connectiVISION, in a statement.
Travel Tech, which features the latest gadgets, apps and services to make travel more convenient, was conceived by IC Places and the team at connectiVISION together.
"We are pleased to be partnering with IC Places as their diverse roster of content provides our viewers with engaging entertainment stories from around the world as well as innovative insights into the technology and digital media sectors," said Henry Mauriss, CEO of connectiVISION.
IC Places recently announced it had completed the purchase of Punch TV Networks, giving the company a broadcast TV network available in 50 million households. In August 2012 the network expanded into New York and Houston, adding 14 million households. Punch TV Network has a roster of original programing which includes 36 new dramas, comedies, variety shows, talk shows, children's shows and inspirational entertainment.
