|Enabling Telco-Grade TV Services||26th November 2010|
By Geoff Thomas, General Manager, Asia-Pacific, Communications Sector, Microsoft Corporation
More than thirty world-class telcos are betting their subscription TV businesses on the Microsoft Mediaroom platform. Around the world, this platform is serving up award-winning TV services to more than five million homes, and subscriptions to these TV services are growing at a rate of four TV households a minute, twenty-four hours a day, and seven days a week. While the telcos delivering these TV services deserve much of the credit for the success of these services, they would not be able to deliver as robust and reliable a service if the Microsoft platform itself were not equal to the service delivery task.
AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, SingTel and most recently Vee TIME Corp, for example chose Microsoft Mediaroom as the foundation for TV services they are delivering to subscribers over broadband networks. AT&T began offering its U-verse TV service in June of 2006 in a single geographic region. Within six months, it had built out its service to support seven geographically distinct regions. By the end of 2007 it had scaled its solution to support an additional 16 regions. As of mid-2009, AT&T offers its U-verse TV service in more than 50 regions in 27 states. To existing customers, the expansion of this service has been transparent. The only changes they noticed came from alerts notifying them of additional TV channels coming online.
