Cogeco unit signs deal for MediaFirst IPTV platform

Cogeco Communications Inc unit Cogeco Connexion Inc. will offer MediaFirst's next-generation internet protocol television platform in Canada.

"Once integrated, Cogeco Connexion's new MediaFirst Video Experience will be entirely IPTV-based, voice activated, and will rely entirely on a media-optimized cloud-based TV platform," Michel Blais, vice president, engineering and operations at Cogeco Connexion, said in an Aug. 14 statement. "We expect to make the service available to customers throughout our footprint by mid-year 2019 and it will then become the standard video experience offered to new customers."

Cogeco Connexion is the second-largest cable operator in Ontario and Quebec in terms of the number of basic cable service customers served.
