Consolidated Communications, a regional pay TV and broadband provider, is expanding the New England footprint for its CCiTV product.

The company is introducing its TV service to consumers in Vermont and making the service available to additional locations in Maine and New Hampshire. CCiTV was already available in southern Maine and in the Lakes Region, central and southern New Hampshire.

CCiTV offers nearly 200 live, local, national and premium channels, and offers features including restart/replay TV, voice-activated remote controls, HD with 4K compatibility and cloud DVR. The service starts at $24.99 per month for the basic tier (which offers more than 30 channels), and goes all the way up to $84.41 per month for more than 180 channels.
