Markham, Ontario – New York, NY – July 21, 2022 – Enghouse Networks, a leading global IPTV SaaS platform solutions provider, and Broadpeak®, a major global video streaming company, have been selected by Americable International, Inc. to deliver world-class video streaming service to US military personnel serving in Japan.

The solution enables the delivery of live, catch-up TV, NPVR, and VOD American content, as well as local Japanese content to Americable Stream subscribers. They are leveraging Enghouse’s innovative EspialTV platform which provides a multi-tenant, cloud based solution to manage and control the TV service and client solutions for mobile, retail STBs (e.g. FireTV, AppleTV) and managed STBs.

“Americable provides a vital service for US military personnel serving overseas, and we were honored they selected Enghouse Networks, EspialTV to help them offer a compelling TV service” said Mick McCluskey, Vice President, Product Management, Enghouse Networks. “We have an unrivalled track record of delivering outstanding television experiences for residential and bulk/commercial customers which will be applicable for this deployment.”
