Minerva Networks has deployed the YourTV Now platform for Mahaska Communications Group (MCG). MCG provides internet, television and phone services to customers in a number of Iowa cities as well as providing wireless internet to rural communities.
YourTV Now is a turnkey white label cloud pay-TV service powered by the Minerva 10 platform. It is pre-integrated with popular OSS/BSS systems and features service management, video encoding/transcoding, time-shifting and streaming services.
When paired with the Minerva 10 platform, Mahaska becomes part of a turnkey platform that offers a full range of television functionality, including catch-up TV, restart TV, personal video recording, recommendations and binge watching.
“Looking to move away from legacy IPTV technology, this new service will allow Mahaska to deploy a streaming solution with more devices including tablets, smartphones, firesticks and more,” said Matt Cuson, VP of marketing and product for Minerva Networks. “Known throughout Iowa for their reliability and innovation, we are proud to be working with Mahaska as they upgrade their technology platform and continue to deliver great TV services to their loyal and growing customer base.”
“As a leading operator, we are excited to be working with Minerva to create a more compelling and engaging user experience in a very short amount of time,” said Steve Burnett, assistant general manager at MCG. “The entire industry has learned so much over the last year and as the market continues to evolve, I am looking forward to sharing what we’ve learned here at Mahaska along with what we know will be keen insights from Matt.”
