Excerpt from News

"The key to our customers' survival, in this extremely competitive entertainment delivery industry, will depend upon their ability to quickly deliver the most exciting and reliable content possible, while at the same time minimizing the time it takes to deliver these services, and reducing the cost associated with each subscriber turn-up.
