SureWest rolls out Mediaroom-powered ADTV

Independent telco TV pioneer SureWest Communications has begun rolling out its new Microsoft Mediaroom-based Advanced Digital TV (ADTV) to new customers in its Sacramento, Calif. service area. The company said in a press release that it is already seeing demand during a soft launch period before its marketing campaign has begun in earnest.

The Mediaroom capabilities behind ADTV bring SureWest offerings like Whole Home DVR, which AT&T and other Microsoft customers have made available. It comes at a time when SureWest also has broadened its base of potential customers by investing in bringing ADSL2+ connections to more households. The carrier has used Minerva middleware on its previous TV rollouts.

Charter Communications said it will add five “Latino targeted TV networks” to its Spectrum TV lineup.

Charter argues that the data caps rules were imposed so that Charter wouldn’t hurt OTT video players by limiting their traffic on its network.
