Consolidated Communications (NASDAQ:CNSL) introduced CCiTV, a cloud-based multiscreen video service, in the southern Maine communities of Portland, Augusta and Lewiston.

The new service will supply viewing content from nearly 200 live local, national and premium channels, as well as restart/replay TV, voice-activated remote controls, high definition (HD) with 4K compatibility and cloud-based DVR storage.

"CCiTV breaks the traditional mold of television services," said Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management at Consolidated Communications. "It's a streamlined service that removes the two biggest pain points customers experience when dealing with traditional providers: weather-related outages and never-ending fees on the bill. Everything is included in one easy-to-use, highly reliable package."

CCiTV is designed to support customizable individual preferences, parental controls and viewing recommendations. The service features bring-your-own-device functionality and can be delivered in HD to a big-screen TV, as well as to tablets and mobile devices through compatibility with Apple iOS-, Amazon- and Android-supported devices.

CCiTV will deliver content from network groups, local broadcast channels, regional sports networks and others. Consolidated Communications broadband customers in Northern New England also have access to on-demand streaming content.
