Cable & Wireless Communication’s Caribbean division, LIME, has deployed video delivery technology from US firm Minerva Networks to deliver pay-TV services to its broadband subscribers across the region.
Minerva’s iTVFusion platform is being used in combination with adaptive bitrate and HTTP Live Streaming technologies to enable LIME to deliver advanced video services over its broadband network, including over 130 linear channels, video-on-demand and Digital Video Recording.
“This partnership with Minerva Networks complements our service very well in terms of the stability of the transmission, the security of the content and, among other excellent provisioning support, we get to offer our customers all the latest features of a pay TV service,” said Dianne Bissoon, LIME’s VP TV & Entertainment.
LIME’s basic TV service channel lineup includes programs from major US networks such as ABC, CBS and NBC, sports from ESPN, music from MTV, children’s channel Nickelodeon, as well as news and lifestyle programmes from Warner Brothers and BBC America. LIME has also launched LIMEstyle, its own channel for showcasing its latest products, services and promotions.
