New Uniserve TV offering breaks the status quo - channel by channel purchases

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uniserve Communications (the Company) is pleased to announce the introduction and addition of Uniserve TV to its residential and business products mix.  Uniserve TV lets clients choose the channels that best fit their lifestyle without having to buy the usual bundles. The TV is powered by an Apple TV box, which gives clients access to hundreds of streaming Apps like Netflix, and YouTube, all in one view, without having to switch from TV to the Internet.

The Uniserve TV platform can be voice activated using Apple’s Siri and is a bridge to a collection of smart home devices such as lights, plugs and cameras, all of which can all be controlled through a mobile phone or Uniserve TV.  This new build-as-you-go is unique in the TV and smart home space.

To allow customers to dip their toes in the water, the Company is offering the first two months of their TV platform service free.

Uniserve’s CEO Nicholas Jeffery said: “The smart home revolution and streaming TV is gaining pace, but the incumbents still have shoppers over a barrel with bundled channel packages where they have to buy six channel theme packages to get the one channel they want – well that stops with Uniserve TV – buy what you want when you want it. TV is just a monitor and should integrate all your online devices and media – by selecting the Apple platform, we allow customers to do jst that – break the stranglehold of the incumbents, allowing them to stretch their imaginations.”

Uniserve is now offering TV services to residential and business clients throughout British Columbia and Alberta, with the intention to expand into Ontario in early 2018.
