US number eight cableco Breezeline launches cloud TV service

The number eight US cable operator, Breezeline, owned by Canada’s Cogeco, has unveiled a new cloud-based TV offering with live TV, DVR, on-demand and popular streaming apps for multiple viewing devices.

Breezeline Stream TV is an IP-based service that provides access to apps including Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max and Disney+ among others.

The service offers features including live rewind, startover and catch-up TV, with HD recording on the Cloud DVR Max offering providing up to 300 hours of HD recording.

The streaming service comes with voice command capability from Google Assistant along with built-in support for Chromecast.

The Breezeline Stream TV app is available on the Apple App store and Google Play, enabling users to view cointent on the go, including live TV and cloud DVR recordings.

Breezeline Stream TV will launch in New Hampshire this month and will be extended to other service areas in the course of the year.

Breezeline operates services across Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

Parent company Cogeco operates networks in Québec and Ontario. The company was recently the target of an unsuccessful bid to acquire it by Patrick Drahi’s Altice USA.

“We are excited to introduce next generation TV with Breezeline Stream TV,” said Heather McCallion, VP products and programming for Breezeline.

“It’s an incredibly advanced TV service, with unparalleled features and personalization options, yet really simple to use. Customers can easily view what they want, when they want and where they want.”
