Canada’s best IPTV network… Sasktel!

March 5, 2007

Sasktel is claiming that they have the best Geographical Network in the world. This according to today’s Leader Post. They have put in place an incredibly fast network of Fibre-Optic cables throughout the province, thus enabling them to offer broadband services such as the much awaited IPTV.

They call their IPTV service Max Entertainement services. With 27 HD chanels this rivals all other offerings in Canada. They will be exporting this service to other provinces as soon as they work out some of the kinks. I personally am looking forward to IPTV, hoping that on demand local programing and personalized menus will make my viewing that much more enjoyable.

If anyone reading this as aleready tried out this service please let me know you thoughts.

HDTV, IPTV, DTV, all we want is TV.

January 20, 2007

This blog will do its best to keep up with TV trends in Canada. These are always on the move, either through its content providers buying each other up, or through the ever changing techno landscape surrounding TV land. On that note I would invite anyone looking for a glimpse into which Canadian company is doing what on the IPTV front to read today’s Financial Post front page, it’s all about the IPTV trend taking rout in the prairies. Yes the Prairies, cause in Canada Sasktel and MTS are the leaders in IPTV deployment, with TELUS coming up behind them. This will be a hot topic for months to come as Internet providers in Canada, especially the cable companies, decide whether or not to practice Net neutrality when it comes to these bandwidth intensive services.

LEt me know you thoughts on this or any other TV related issue.

Looks like 2007 will be quite a year for the consumer.
