MTS Allstream expands IPTV, whole home PVR

MTS Allstream, the Canadian telco that was one of the pioneers of telco TV in North America, is now offering MTS Ultimate TV in Brandon, Manitoba, with service features that include Whole Home PVR. The launch is using Alcatel-Lucent equipment and Microsoft's Mediaroom platform.

The PVR service includes the capability to record up to three programs on three different broadcast channels at the same time, which the service provider claims is a first among TV service providers in Canada. No sooner have DVR services become competitive table stakes than some providers using Mediaroom (like AT&T and MTS) have looked to up the ante with multi-channel recording.
