KANSAS CITY, Mo. (April 15, 2014) – NeoNova, an industry leader in cloud-based services for regional telcos, today announced that the company’s latest live broadcast streaming solution for Roku gives affiliate customers a new way for their subscribers to watch local television.
YourStream TV from NeoNova allows service providers to deliver cost-effective local television to broadband customers through a customizable Roku channel with a fully brandable interface and tailored channel lineups. This new service offers end-users a lower-cost alternative to cable and satellite subscriptions or inconsistent over-the-air signals, and it comes with authentication functionality so local channels remain in compliance with retransmission agreements.

Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom (WCVT), an independent telecommunications company serving the Mad River and Central Champlain Valley regions of Vermont, successfully integrated YourStream TV into its service options through a white-label version called GMA Video. This solution now gives WCVT a real competitive advantage in the market because customers no longer have to look for multiple providers for telephone, Internet, and TV.
“Customers have said for years that local TV channels are a priority,” said Kurt Gruendling, vice president of marketing and business development, WCVT. “Local channels often take precedent over premium or subscription channels, but people don’t want to pay exorbitant amounts of money and only receive a handful of channels.”
YourStream TV has a simple, inexpensive setup that comes with all the extra benefits of Roku, including access to Netflix®, Hulu Plus™, Amazon® Instant Video, HBO GO®, and more than 1,000 other channels. It also comes with a trick play feature so users can pause, rewind, and fast-forward any live channel they are currently watching.
“Our goal is to provide our affiliates the tools they require to be successful, even if that means developing new services to fit a specific need,” said Ray Carey, CEO of NeoNova.” YourStream TV allows rural telco customers to offer live broadcast video services by leveraging a cost-effective, hosted model using affordable consumer hardware. The television and video marketplace is changing rapidly and we are happy to be working with WVCT to introduce changes right along with it. This new service enables an affordable triple play that is a real game changer.”
NeoNova will highlight this latest streaming video innovation and other products and services this week at the IP Possibilities Conference & Expo in Kansas City, Mo. NeoNova is in booth number 207/209. NeoNova CEO Ray Carey will deliver the conference’s Thursday keynote address on hosted services at 8:15 a.m., and Chris Beatson, vice president of project management and software engineering, will speak about emerging technologies, customized content, and consumer control on Wednesday at 1 p.m.
