Bermuda CableVision launches VoD in Southampton, Warwick

11 Dec 2012

Domestic cable services provider Bermuda CableVision has launched a video-on-demand (VoD) service in Southampton and Warwick, The Royal Gazette reports. First launched in Somerset in late-October this year, the cableco has been rolling out VoD on a parish-by-parish basis, moving from west to east the paper says. The new offering includes a range of movie titles, shows and events, and viewers can select from a suite of free and pay-per-view content, with prices starting at BMD2.99 (USD2.99) per title.

As reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, last month CableVision launched a new ultra-high speed residential internet service – a first on the island. The commercial launch of the cableco’s ‘Broadband Link’ plans offer speeds of 15Mbps for BMD90 a month, rising to BMD140 a month for a 25Mbps connection via DOCSIS3.0 technology. The service launch eclipsed the previous maximum 10Mbps/1Mbps (download/upload) service available to householders in Bermuda. The new service is available ‘island-wide’, with Terry Roberson, general manager of Bermuda CableVision, quoted as saying: ‘Power users, families in connected homes with numerous devices, geeks, gamers and anyone who craves more speed, will appreciate these new Broadband Link services.’
