Logic Cayman, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bermuda-based KeyTech Holding Limited, has confirmed plans to launch a new internet protocol television (IPTV) service over a purpose-built fibre-optic network in the Cayman Islands, Caycompass.com reports. The new service promises to offer a range of TV channels, an improved HD channel line-up, multi-room DVR capabilities and video-on-demand (VoD).
Logic CEO Mike Edenholm is quoted as saying: ‘Logic will launch IPTV in Cayman in direct competition with traditional cable TV and DVD operations. Unlike the [previous alternatives], IPTV subscribers will be able to choose the programme they wish to watch and when they want to watch them – all without leaving their living rooms.’ In June 2012 the company revealed that commercial launch of the new IPTV service would take place in the fourth quarter.
TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database writes that Logic Cayman was issued with an IPTV licence in January 2012, allowing it to start offering triple-play voice telephony, internet access and IPTV services there. At the time the CEO of parent group KeyTech, Sheila Lines, was quoted as saying that the group intends to offer triple-play in Cayman over a fibre residential network and has already commenced construction of the system infrastructure.
