Zazeen to roll out IPTV in Canada with Entone
| 29 May 2014
Canadian broadband provider Zazeen has selected Entone for its hybrid IPTV roll-out.
Together with Acanac and Distributel, Zazeen has access to an ISP network with more than 200,000 subscribers in several markets. The joint companies offer video services through the Zazeen brand.
"We need to position ourselves to take advantage of a rapidly changing marketplace," said Paul Louro, president of Zazeen. "We see broadband as the foundation for enabling next-gen services and TV is a natural extension of our broadband business. With Entone's hybrid TV solution, we're able to leverage our existing network to deliver a video-centric broadband service that helps us to increase ARPU and further strengthens the relationship with our subscribers."
Entone's Hybrid TV solution combines live TV and cloud services, which operators can deploy across their broadband footprint.
"Broadband is a strategic anchor that progressive operators can leverage for greater consumer engagement and provides a platform for other ARPU-accretive broadband services," said Mark Evensen, founder and CTO of Entone. "We look forward to supporting Zazeen as they continue to expand their hybrid TV service roll-out."
