National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative announces that more rural telcos are adopting the innovative and cost-effective, end-to-end IPTV service, IP-PRIME. The announcement came during the first general session of the TelcoTV conference. Through a partnership with NRTC and The National Telecommunications Cooperative Association, rural telcos may bring IPTV to rural America through two business opportunities:
1) An end-to-end IPTV service using SES AMERICOM’s IP-PRIME, a centralized, satellite-delivered IPTV distribution solution that includes content transport, headend, and set-top box solutions
2) A programming-only solution for telcos with existing headend facilities or other transport arrangements.
