Pioneer Telephone Coop launches WealthTV

While it seems like a small play, the Pioneer Telephone Cooperative is one of the earliest to deploy IPTV service in the U.S. (they launched in Oklahoma in 2004). The latest network to sign up with Pioneer is WealthTV, which covers travel, luxury cars, better etiquette and better investing. Pioneer claims 53,000 total customers in 30 Oklahoma counties (not too shabby). Much of the innovation in the U.S. IPTV sector will begin with the small players since they'll need to distinguish themselves from the larger telco offerings moving forward.
