Ohio cable operator MCTV has announced the integration of Netflix into its Fusion video platform. 

MCTV Fusion video customers with a Netflix account will be able to view the service on their Fusion set-top. Customers will continue to pay the SVOD provider directly, as is the case with most big-operator integrations of the streaming platform. 

“More now than ever, people want more and they want it at their fingertips. Simplifying access to Netflix content is just another example of MCTV’s ongoing commitment to adapt to the needs of our customers by going the extra smile,” said MCTV President Robert Gessner, in a statement.

Earlier this week, Fierce uncovered a Netflix support page for integration of the SVOD platform on Verizon Fios. Major cable operators Comcast and Cox have already embedded Netflix into the X1 video platform and its white label iterations. 

Fusion is MCTV’s whole-home video platform based on Arris hardware and technology. The system combines Arris set-tops and gateways with Espial’s Elevate platform, which is underpinned by the company’s acquisition in 2016 of the Arris Whole Home Solutions. 

Based in Massillon, Ohio, MCTV serves more than 47,000 residences and businesses in Stark, Wayne, Summit, Holmes and Tuscarawas counties.
