Cost, features lead Duncan Cable TV to choose GoBackTV for IPTV services

Duncan Cable TV owner Cliff Duncan said his decision to use GoBackTV's RetroVue system to bring his customers interactive digital cable boiled down to a couple of main factors: how much it was going to cost him and what it would bring to his customers.

"We looked at a lot of solutions, and GoBackTV has the best, most financially realistic solution for DCTV," said Duncan. "We want the same new services as the large operators, but we have fewer customers over which we can spread the cost. ...As a very small operator, we can't be all things to all people. However, the GoBackTV solution will enable us to offer unique as well as cutting edge video services we believe our subscribers will value highly."

Wilmington, Vt.-based DCTV currently offers its 2,800 subscribers 75 analog channels as well as DOCSIS-based high-speed Internet. The GoBackTV deal will initially allow the company to bring 50 channels of HD cable IPTV, and will include video on demand, video mosaic, switched multicast, and startover. Duncan Cable TV will also use GoBackTV's MyRV Portal middleware to provide guide and navigation tools.
