The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has granted Manitoba Telecom Services Inc. (MTS) a Video on Demand Programming license. "With Video on Demand, our customers will be able to use their remote control to choose videos or movies on their own schedules, without leaving home," says Cheryl Barker, President and Chief Operating Officer of MTS Communications Inc. "They will have a huge video library to choose from, offering a range of movies, documentaries, and other programming categories." With Video on Demand, MTS TV customers won't have to wait for a scheduled time, since the entire library will be available for viewing any time of the day or night. The movies will simply be billed to their MTS TV account - so there is no need to use a credit card to order. "MTS TV customers will enjoy benefits beyond traditional movie channels with MTS's Video on Demand," says Roy Sherbo, Vice President of MTS TV. "In addition to the huge choice and convenience of scheduling, our customers will be able to stop, pause, fast forward, rewind and replay the program as often as they want during the rental period, all from their TV remote control." MTS is currently negotiating content with various movie companies in both Canada and the United States. Video On Demand is expected to be available through MTS TV later in 2004.
