Cass Cable TV has entirely replaced its MPEG-2 service with Avail-TVN's hosted MPEG-4 video service, including SD and HD channels.
Cass Cable TV offers cable, Internet and telephone services to 35 communities, including rural areas, in west-central Illinois.
"We wanted a way to deliver a superior television experience to our subscribers while increasing efficiency and reducing overhead," said Tom Allen, COO of Cass Cable. "By working with Avail-TVN, we were able to move to a robust, cost-effective MPEG-4 solution that allows us to better use existing bandwidth to deliver next-generation services such as TV Everywhere, as well as additional programming options."
The small provider in Illinois signs up for Avail-TVN's MPEG-4 service, freeing bandwidth for TV Everywhere and other services.
