TekSavvy is expanding its Internet Protocol television (IPTV) into Toronto, offering television loyalists in the city another option for live programming beyond the big telcos.
The Ontario-based wholesale network provider announced on Monday that subscribers in the region will be able to access over 100 HD channels and on-demand video through the TekSavvy TV service.
TekSavvy and its affiliate cable company Hastings Cable Vision said basic packages start at $20 per month, and additional “theme packages” will range in price from $6 to $20 per month.
The company said the service is currently available as an app for Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire Stick. Customers will need a residential Internet subscription with a minimum download speed of 15 Mbps.
“We’re responding to our customers’ requests for innovative, competitive Canadian television alternatives which TekSavvy TV is delivering with more value and a great, easy-to-use experience on select devices that they already own,” Marc Gaudrault, CEO of TekSavvy and President of Hastings Cable Vision.
“We look forward to adding more devices, more features, and more channels, and rolling out to more areas in the coming months.”
