Cable and Satellite TV to Become Obsolete?
In a press release, the company states that "the broadband entertainment-on-demand service will allow customers to instantly access a wide variety of video entertainment, including television programs and Hollywood films, within seconds with the click of a mouse." Broadwing claims that ZoomTown's Intertainer subscribers will be able to select music programming as well. Customers will view their choices in "full-screen, high-quality resolution with complete VCR functionality," allowing them to stop, rewind, and fast-forward selections.
Jonathan Taplin, president and co-CEO of Intertainer, says "We're excited about being the first company to bring full-screen, A-list entertainment on demand directly to consumers' PCs. Broadwing's ZoomTown customers will soon discover the freedom and joy of having a world of entertainment options at their fingertips that can be delivered to their PCs within seconds."
