Microsoft Mediaroom-Powered Services Surpasses 2 Million Subscribers

In less than a year, subscribers to TV services powered by the Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV and multimedia software platform have more than doubled, reaching over 2 million subscriber homes and powering services on nearly 4 million set-top boxes worldwide. In the past quarter alone, Mediaroom customers have connected 500,000 new subscribers across the globe.

Microsoft noted that its customers are beginning to maximize the functionality of its Mediaroom platform to differentiate their service offering with features such as personalized weather and sports information, the freedom to play back standard-definition and high-definition recorded programs on any connected TV in the home, or the ability to set the digital video recorder (DVR) remotely via a PC or mobile device.
