Midwestern services provider HickoryTech plans to offer advanced IPTV services soon, using a new Nokia Siemens Networks platform.
Subscribers will be able to personalize content such as weather and stock market information, do personal video recording and change channels faster.
“There is a growing demand for a superior TV experience that allows a high degree of interactivity and personalization,” Damon Dutz, president of HickoryTech’s consumer and network solutions division, said in a prepared statement. Plus, Dutz added, “the open environment of Nokia Siemens Networks’ multi-screen IPTV platform allows us to work with independent developers to offer new applications that satisfy the changing needs of our customers.”
HickoryTech will develop its services using Nokia Siemens’ multiscreen IPTV system based on the Interactive Markup Language.
