HBC goes OTT with Amino
April 20, 2012
HBC (Hiawatha Broadband Communications), the Minnesota-based FTTH ‘quadplay’ services provider, is trialling Amino’s Freedom Jump OTT media centre as it seeks to offer new and innovative entertainment experiences to its 20,000-strong customer base.
Working closely with platform partner aioTv, Amino’s Freedom Jump delivers a new layer of content that is blended seamlessly with an HBC’s existing branded user interface. This allows viewers to access a wealth of additional OTT content from the open Internet such as movie-on-demand services, catch-up TV, Internet music services and social networking alongside traditional broadcast entertainment.
Amino VP sales North America Dan Carufel added; “There is growing demand from innovative service providers like HBC to really embrace OTT as a key part of their offering. The response from both a customer and technical perspective has been excellent and we look forward to continuing the work with both HBC and our partners aioTV to extend the trial.”
