Cable & Wireless preps TV Everywhere
Using Avail-TVN's multi-platform video service, Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) has begun rolling out TV Everywhere across all 37 markets in its global footprint.
The first CWC property to bring up the service will be Lime, which will begin offering TV Everywhere in Jamaica and Barbados before the end of the year. Lime expects to spend 2012 expanding the service across the 14 countries it serves in the Caribbean.
CWC has networks in the Caribbean, Panama, Macau, Monaco and elsewhere.
Using adaptive bit rate (ABR) technology, Avail-TVN will provide up to 130 live SD television channels, as well as video-on-demand content for Lime customers to access via set-top boxes and connected devices.
Avail-TVN will also manage the subscriber experience, the vendor said, providing the user interface and electronic program guide and monitoring broadcasts from its network operations center. The service will be delivered via Lime's private broadband network.
