NTTC and SMS combined IPTV licensing strategy
November 18, 2008
Content licensing leaders NTTC, (National Telco Television Consortium) and SMS, Satellite Management Services, have forged a strategic relationship to provide increased options for IPTV and SMATV system operators in the US. The move is aimed at reaching farther and deeper into traditional residential style IPTV systems by adding a variety of content deployment products.
"NTTC traditionally provides consultative content licensing strategies to our core Telco, Powerco, networking and Municipality members in order to determine the best content offerings needed to build their successful IPTV deployments," said William Shepherd, NTTC CEO. "We are excited to work with SMS because NTTC has growing opportunities in the hospitality and multi-tenant markets. SMS gives us the added ability to serve our member systems with those alternative deployment solutions where common IPTV deployments may fall a little short in reaching the most subscribers."
