THE VALLEY, Anguilla, Friday July 17, 2015 – Cable and Wireless Communications (C&W) which now operates Flow has secured a broadcast licence to operate television service in Anguilla.
Residents will be able to access the Advanced Video Service (AVS) by the end of the year.
President of C&W’s Consumer Group, John Reid, said the company was thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce “the most advanced digital TV technology available today to the people of Anguilla”.
“This is welcome news for our customers in Anguilla. Our successful merger with Columbus International Inc has facilitated the acceleration of our expanded portfolio from triple play to market leading quad play services, he said.”
AVS will provide state-of-the-art high definition TV, personal cloud video recorder, parental control and will also allow viewers to watch television on the go with the Flow To-Go app.
“The planned launch of this advanced video service in Anguilla will provide our viewers with the region’s best TV experience and is set to transform the way people watch TV. It will be TV on demand, whenever, wherever and how the viewer wishes. Our ambition is to be number one with customers, and delivering world-class customer experiences is what we are all about,” Reid said.
Commenting on the approval of the TV licence and soon to be announced launch of TV services, Anguilla Country Manager, Matthieu Dion said Anguillans would benefit from “the best content, service features and the most flexible options – all accessible at home or on the go”.
“All this is just a taste of the many innovations to come. We will deliver Anguilla’s best TV service across the most advanced network, ensuring our customers experience the great services they so richly deserve,” he assured.
In 2014, C&W embarked on a US$7.4 million network upgrade investment programme for Anguilla, as part of a wider regional investment strategy, called Project Marlin.
