Rapid changes in the video business are causing smaller cable companies, who have historically relied on RF and HFC technologies, to evaluate new IPTV options. Customers are demanding digital services like Whole Home DVR, Restart TV, and smartphone and tablet applications, which are best enabled through IPTV. Increasingly smaller cable companies are making the transition.
One recent example is Huntsville, Arkansas based Madison County Telephone (MCT), who recently upgraded their network to FTTH and transitioned their legacy cable network to IPTV. The transition has been welcomed by MCT subscribers.
“Some of the most hesitant customers are now our biggest promoters as they have been able to see the improved quality over the RF service,” says MCT’s Scott Hamby. “The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and everybody loves the Weather App and the better quality picture that they receive.”
After careful evaluation of all of their options, MCT decided the move to an APMAX IPTV platform made the most sense for their customers and delivered the features and user experience they demanded. The operational benefits including better quality, improved efficiency, and smooth integration are added bonuses.
