USDTV emerges from bankruptcy with new owner
NexGen Telecom has acquired the assets of U.S. Digital Television (USDTV) from bankruptcy court and added the MountainWest Sports Network (the mtn.) to the USDTV service.
USDTV’s over-the-air subscription TV service provides consumers with a low-cost alternative to cable. USDTV was the first all-digital, HD pay TV service in the United States to be broadcast over the air.
Charles McNeil, chairman of NexGen Telecom, has selected digital broadcasting pioneer Steve Lindsley to be USDTV’s CEO.
USDTV also has added the mtn., which will be available at no extra charge to existing customers, in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area.
