Telus Corp. hopes to offer video-on-demand (VOD) when it launches its digital television service over broadband possibly later this year. As the telco awaits the CRTC’s decision on its licence applications to provide digital TV service in British Columbia and Alberta (CCR, March 13/03, Sept. 26/02), its VOD application has been gazetted and is slated to be considered at a June 16 public hearing in Edmonton (CCR Update, April 16/03). Mark Pezarro, Telus’ VP of broadband applications, tells Canadian Communications Reports that it’s possible that VOD could launch at the same time as the telco’s TV service.
