Consolidated deploys CloverLeaf Digital's apps solution to IPTV subscribers

CloverLeaf Digital has scored a win for its AppDaily TV apps solution, which soon will be deployed on existing customer Consolidated Communication's (Nasdaq: CNSL) IPTV service.


CloverLeaf's television apps solution includes an app store, a personalized dashboard and a full suite of apps.

Consolidated, one of the largest independent rural local exchange carriers (RLEC) in the U.S., launched AppDaily to all of its IPTV subscribers in Illinois, Pennsylvania and Texas. The company has about 31,200 subscribers to its IPTV service as of the second quarter of 2011.

CloverLeaf's television apps solution includes an app store, a personalized quick-access dashboard and a full suite of over 40 localized news and information apps, social networking apps and CloverLeaf's DashDaily community publishing apps. AppDaily is available on many major television platforms.

"AppDaily apps for TV solution gives us an entry into the world of apps that has clearly become so popular with consumers on many devices," said Rob Koester, director of product management at Consolidated Communications. "AppDaily helps independent providers of managed video reclaim the forefront of the consumer experience."

CloverLeaf develops and provides applications that are fully integrated with the television platform and built on the underlying technology. Its content management and publishing system allows for either local or cloud-hosting by service providers.

The Brooklyn-based company not only provides the apps, but manages and monitors them and the networks and systems behind them as well.
