SaskTel to launch HD IPTV service

Canadian telecom company SaskTel will be the first provider in North America to commercially deploy HDTV services as part of an IPTV offering using new technologies such as MPEG-4, according to Alcatel.

Alcatel's Triple Play Service Delivery Architecture is a key component of SaskTel's Next Generation Access Infrastructure (NGAI) program. SaskTel's HDTV offering represents the evolution of the company’s Max Entertainment Services, which currently include high-speed Internet access, television and video on demand (VOD) in a single bundle over SaskTel's high-speed IP network.

SaskTel's NGAI program, a capital investment initiative that is providing bandwidth of up to 40Mb/s, is the key enabler for advanced services such as HDTV and VoIP.
