ExpressVu applies for VOD licence to help proposed cable service be competitive

News | 06/21/2004 4:00 am EDT

Bell ExpressVu LP has applied for a video-on-demand (VOD) licence primarily to ensure that its sister company Bell Canada’s proposed TV broadcast service is competitive with the incumbent cablecos. "They (the VOD and the Class 1 cable licence applications) are two independent applications. But once we obtain the cable licence, we intend to be out in the market with our wireline cable service as soon as we can thereafter," Bell Canada VP of regulatory affairs Mirko Bibic tells Canadian Communications Reports. "The objective here is to be as competitive as possible and to offer as much choice as we can. Video-on-demand is a nice feature to have to be competitive."
