Wisconsin Video Operator adds MG-TV Live Streaming

TelAve News/10670981
WESTBY, Wis. - TelAve -- As many video operators are using a cap-n-grow model to phase out their cable or IPTV systems in place of live streaming, Vernon Communications Coop in Wisconsin is taking a different approach. Recognizing their demographic customer base, this western Wisconsin video operator has not only added the live streaming service from national headend provider Midwest Video Solutions as a stand-alone service, but they are also offering it as a complementary service for their existing IPTV customers. Both solutions are part of the Innovative Systems suite of video products, and according to Vernon Member Relations Manager Emily Rozeske, the consistent look across both the streaming and IPTV platforms makes it very easy for customers to use one or both. Rozeske says the streaming component has been quite popular for customers who have IPTV but would like the same service in other areas of their home where they do not have Set Top Boxes wired, and with Roku, Amazon or Apple devices connected to Wi-Fi, now they can.

Rozeske says for Vernon customers who are comfortable with streaming, this service as a stand-alone, coupled with their broadband is a better deal price wise compared to their IPTV service. The pricing is more favorable because there are less operational expenses with no installation service call, and lower capital expenses because streaming customers do not need a set top box. To get a full video channel lineup at a price point that is in line with the national live streaming services along with local customer care is a major competitive advantage for Vernon.
