Last week, EchoStar made overtures to the IP-Prime wholesale IPTV customers of SES Americom, and now Avail Media is touting its own success winning over telcos that up until now have been using IP-Prime. Avail Media, another IPTV wholesaler, announced that it has so far converted nine IP-Prime customers, including BEK Communications Cooperative of North Dakota.
SES Americom is ending the IP-Prime service later this year, a move it announced late last year. Avail Media and EchoStar are among some of the companies that have been vying to replace SES Americom in the hearts of IP-Prime telcos.
