IP-based Aliant TV launched in Canada

MUMBAI: Aliant, Atlantic Canada's information and communications technology provider, has kicked off its digital television business with the launch of Aliant TV. The new, IP-based television service delivers digital picture and sound quality and features over 150 television channels and over 70 music channels.

"Aliant is pleased to offer our 100 per cent digital television service to our Aliant High Speed Value Package customers. A great television and music line-up for a low price," Aliant Broadband and Marketing V-P Heather Tulk said in an official release.

"With 20 per cent more channels for 40 per cent less than full-tier analog cable - combining phone, cell, Internet and television on one bill from Aliant is a convenient and cost-effective choice for our customers. Extending our service offering to include another television service is part of our commitment to be our customers' first choice for all information, communications and entertainment needs," Tulk added.

Aliant TV delivers value, quality and choice to customers for as low as $29 per month - for the first twelve months. Our television service delivers high quality picture and sound, on up to two television sets. Over 150 fully digital television channels are available, including all four local channels; over 70 digital music channels (including 30 Atlantic Canadian radio stations); and a host of other features including an easy-to-use electronic (on-screen) program guide, free time-shifting that allows customers to watch their favourite shows from other time zones and access to pay-per-view movies and events, the release added.

According to the official statement, customers subscribing to Aliant TV do not have to pay for any additional equipment or installation. The service is currently available to Aliant high-speed Internet customers in select areas of Clayton Park West, Wedgewood and Rockingham in Halifax.

The company will be extending the television service to other select areas of Halifax Regional Municipality and to additional urban centres throughout Atlantic Canada.

From its home base in Atlantic Canada, Aliant offers traditional communications services, including local and long distance telephony, wireless, Internet, e-commerce, interactive multimedia, data and managed network services, to more than two million consumers and over 80,000 enterprises.
