The Challenge

TDS sought to deliver a more personalised and engaging entertainment experience on a wide range of consumer devices, with a view to attracting and retaining video subscribers in its highly competitive markets across 31 U.S. states.

Branded TDS TV+, TDS's new Android TV-based streaming video service was to replace two legacy cable systems and an established IPTV solution, unifying the network and integrating both managed and unmanaged video delivery.

The solution

TDS launched the first phase of its next generation TDS TV+ service in central Oregon, USA, with the content delivery powered by Velocix’s suite of IP video applications, including its on-net licenced CDN, origin server, and video recording solutions.

The new streaming platform delivers high performance and efficiency with carrier-grade robustness. It enables TDS subscribers to watch linear programming, video-on-demand, and personalised video recordings on a multitude of consumer devices, including TVs, PCs, mobile devices, and the most popular streaming media players.

Consumers can enjoy more than 180 channels on their own schedule, as well as accessing an extensive library of on-demand and pay-per-view content. Additionally, internet-based offerings, including Netflix and YouTube, can be accessed directly through the new service.
