C Spire has launched a new in-home streaming TV service in the US that eliminates the need for set-top boxes.
C Spire TV delivers the cable TV features that consumers love in a simple app designed to run on popular streaming devices from Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Apple TV with Roku availability expected in the near future while reducing installation time, monthly costs and the need for replacement of outdated hardware.
“Consumers get the best of both worlds with robust software platforms from the biggest names in the technology world and our cutting-edge apps and superior service,” said Ashley Phillips, general manager of C Spire Home Services, a unit of the Mississippi-based telecommunications and technology services firm.
The new service eliminates the need for customers to outfit every TV in their house with a set-top box, freeing them from several hundred dollars a year in rental fees. Because it’s app-based, C Spire TV allows customers to watch their favourite content on virtually any screen in the home, Phillips said.
