Oregon-based independent teclo Canby Telcom has added more than two dozen high-definition channels to its IPTV line-up. Canby got help from the satellite-based IP-Prime transport solution offered by SES Americom, in tandem with the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative (NRTC).
Canby's new MPEG-4 HD channels include Discovery, Disney, Showtime, Fox News, ESPN, A&E, the Food Network and a handful of local broadcast services, bringing the telco's total HD channel count to 36. The NRTC member was among the first small telcos in the U.S. to launch IPTV in 2005.
