ImOn Freedom Video Service Launches in Iowa

As Iowa communications provider ImOn continues to build out their fiber network into new Iowa communities, they recognize the importance of having a video option for customers, and have selected MG-TV Live Streaming from Innovative Systems as the customer experience platform for their ImOn Freedom Video brand.

Lisa Rhatigan, ImOn’s Vice President of Marketing says that ImOn does not want the lack of having a good video product get in the way of their ability to penetrate new markets and that is why they made an investment in upgrading and launching a full-channel live streaming line-up branded as ImOn Freedom Video. Moving forward Rhatigan says that new fiber to the home customers will be able to purchase the ImOn Freedom Video product. During ImOn’s aggressive fiber expansion they found a measurable number of homeowners who have a video service bundled with another provider that were not willing to separate the two services. This supports the 2022 Video and Broadband study on Rural America that shows over 75% of those who have a local video service, have it bundled with their internet.

Proprietary Streaming Set Top a Key Factor in ImOn’s Vendor Choice

According to Rhatigan, one of the determining factors in choosing MG-TV Live Streaming from Innovative, was the availability of the IS-5041W Set Top Box that gives customers the option of a traditional linear experience.
