Not all market disruption is bad. Learn how two independent video operators – MCTV (Massillon) and HBC (Hiawatha Broadband Communications) – are leveraging IPTV technology and business models to make their video services thrive. In this session, executives from MCTV, HBC and Espial will discuss the video investment dilemma, IPTV and app-based TV. Listen in and reclaim your natural advantage in the video market by pursuing continuous innovation in your video offerings.

In this webinar, Alan Breznick, Cable/Video Practice Leader at Light Reading, will speak with MCTV, HBC and Espial executives about the following:

  • What are the video investment dilemmas and choices that video operators face?
  • Why did MCTV and HBC choose IPTV solutions that reduced their total cost of ownership?
  • How did these operators innovate on business models to make their video services thrive?
  • Is it more expensive to do nothing – a TCO model that says it is?
  • Can TV-as-a-service (TVaaS) help change the game?
