Stanton Telecom Transitioning Cable Plant to IPTV Using APMAX Middleware
Stanton NE – April 13, 2017 – After over thirty years of providing RF Cable Television to customers in the Stanton Nebraska area, Stanton Telecom, under the Stanton Town & Country TV brand, is in the process of converting them to IPTV and they have chosen the APMAX Middleware solution from Innovative Systems.
According to Robert Paden General Manager of Stanton Telecom, the only way his company could stay viable in video was to upgrade their cable plant to IPTV. Picture quality and lack of advanced features was causing customer churn primarily to satellite providers.
Video Quality and More Features are Bringing Them Back
The switch provided Stanton’s subscribers with better picture quality and more competitive features like Restart TV and Cloud DVR. Paden relates one story where a customer stated that he thought his eyes needed checked by an optometrist, but after seeing the new StaC-TV product and the impressive picture quality he decided his eyes were just fine. Stanton Telecom is exclusively offering their customers Cloud DVR instead of premise based DVRs and Paden says they are having a strong take rate for the network-based storage. Paden says they have won back customers who had previously dropped their cable service and have received numerous commitments from satellite customers once their contracts expire.
