The model is being proven as a cost-effective, flexible, and profitable solution for telcos to compete against traditional pay-TV services in their markets. Verimatrix’s content security to our transmission ensures Avail Media is delivering appropriately for our content providers while streamlining the process for commercially launching our affiliates in market.”
