Bresnan Communications is making preparations to deploy video-on-demand (VOD) across all of its cable markets in 2005.
Bresnan, which just announced an expanded VOD and ad insertion deal with nCUBE Corp., expects to light up on-demand sometime next year in Bozeman, Billings, and Great Falls, Mont.; Casper, Wyo.; and Canon City, Colo., an MSO spokeswoman said.
Bresnan has already launched or is getting close to launching VOD in Butte, Helena, and Kalispell, Mont.; Grand Junction, Colo.; and Cheyenne, Wyo.
The MSO would not say if it plans to deploy nCUBE's VOD servers and nABLE backoffice software in the additional markets tagged for 2005, but it's expected that nCUBE, which is in the process of being acquired by C-COR Inc., has the inside track on that business.
