EchoStar launches wholesale IPTV service


US satellite TV provider EchoStar Communications has launched a satellite-delivered wholesale internet protocol television (IPTV) service. Dubbed ViP-TV, the service has been launched by EchoStar Fixed Satellite Services Corporation (EFSSC), and can provide more than 300 channels of broadcast TV to telcos and cable operators.

EFSSC said ViP-TV delivered “affordable and scalable” MPEG-4 internet protocol encapsulated radio and television channels from a high-powered Ku-band satellite.

“ViP-TV is one of the most comprehensive video iP transport and distribution platforms available in the marketplace,” said Michael Kelly, executive vice president of EchoStar Fixed Satellite Services. “More than just programming, it is a premier service buoyed by industry-leading technology, service and support.

“With over 12 years of experience in the transport and distribution business, EchoStar can create a true end-to-end solution offering everything from set top box technology to satellite distribution to service and customer support.”
