Consolidated Communications today announced that it has introduced CCiTV throughout Northern New England, with the service now available consumers in Vermont, as well as additional locations in Maine and New Hampshire. CCiTV had already been available in southern Maine and in the Lakes Region, central and southern New Hampshire.
The service offers several features, including viewing content from nearly 200 live, local, national and premium channels, restart/replay TV, voice-activated remote controls, HD with 4K compatibility and cloud-based DVR storage. It’s based on the MobiTV platform and was first launched by Consolidated earlier this year.
The new app-based TV service eliminates typical weather-related outages and enables customers to view content on a TV, computer, tablet or phone, according to Consolidated. Customers also can choose if they want Consolidated to provide a set-top-box or access CCiTV through streaming devices like Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV. CCiTV is cloud-enabled and supports individual preferences, parental controls and viewing recommendations.
“We’re excited to bring our one-of-a-kind TV service to all of Northern New England,” said Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management at Consolidated Communications, in a prepared statement. “The cloud-based technology delivers unmatched quality, flexibility and reliability.”
The service is available in Vermont locations, including, but not limited to, Barre, Bennington, Brattleboro, Burlington, Colchester, Dorset, Hartford, Manchester, Montpelier, Readsboro, Rutland, and Williston. In Maine, CCiTV is available in Auburn, Augusta, Bangor, Biddeford, Lewiston, Portland, Saco, Scarborough, Topsham and Waterville, as well as numerous additional locations throughout the state. New Hampshire locations, such as Center Harbor, Chesterfield, Concord, Derry, Dover, Epping, Keene, Laconia, Manchester, Merrimack, Nashua, New London, Portsmouth, Rochester and Salem, are among the towns where CCiTV is available.
