TekSavvy launching in Ottawa
TekSavvy and its affiliate cable company Hastings Cable Vision announced yesterday the launch of its IPTV service, TekSavvy TV, in the Ottawa region. TekSavvy TV will offer customers access to over 100 HD channels of sports, movies, series and kids programming including video-on-demand content from selected TV channels.
“On the heels of our successful launch in our home town of Chatham, we’re excited to bring a simple and high-quality TV experience to our customers in Ottawa,” said Marc Gaudrault, CEO of TekSavvy and President of Hastings Cable Vision. “Our customers are asking for innovative, competitive Canadian television alternatives and TekSavvy TV is delivering more value with a great, easy-to-use experience on a device that they already own. We look forward to adding more devices, more features, and more channels, and rolling out to more areas in the coming months.”
