IPTV expands with Arqiva
November 28, 2007
US broadcast channel IPTV has chosen broadcast transmission specialist Arqiva as its key content distribution platform to expand into the European market.
Arqiva recently acquired two teleports and fibre networks in the United States which offer direct access to Arqiva's distribution capabilities within the UK and Europe. The deal represents the first contract to take full advantage of the cost and distribution benefits of using Arqiva's new North American assets. IPTV's founder, Michael Reinstein said that using the Arqiva gateway allowed the channel to cut costs for origination and allowed it to operate virtually as if it were a UK-based broadcaster.
