Shaw expands VOD footprint with nCUBE
Shaw Cablesystems has tapped nCUBE Corp. to supply video-on-demand servers as the MSO pushes the service in the Thompson Okanagan and Prince George regions of British Columbia.
Shaw, Canada's second-largest MSO with more than 2.1 million subs, now offers VOD with nCUBE in 11 markets. Shaw also offers VOD in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Winnipeg, Prince Albert, Edmonton, Ft. McMurray, Saskatoon and Duncan.
Instead of purchasing VOD titles directly from a TV-based interactive program guide, Shaw required its digital customers to order on-demand content via the Internet.
