Galaxie Music Mediaroom Launches with Three Telcos

Galaxie’s Interactive App Leverages Mediaroom Platform

New Orleans, LA, October 27, 2011 --( Stingray Digital, a Montreal-based provider of music services to multi-channel operators, announces the launch of its Galaxie Digital Music Service with Hawaiian Telcom, Lumos Networks (formerly known as nTelos) and Paul Bunyan Communications.

“Stingray Digital is pleased to introduce the Galaxie music service to customers of these innovative telcos,” said Eric Boyko, President of Stingray Digital. “Hawaiian Telcom, Lumos Networks and Paul Bunyan Communications customers will have access to the most advanced Galaxie service available through a unique and feature-rich Galaxie Mediaroom application,” he added.

These companies are the first television services provider in the US to launch the Galaxie Mediaroom Application. This exciting new application gives Galaxie users an enhanced, interactive experience that leverages the flexibility of the Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV platform. The application allows users to browse all 50 channels and see what’s playing without changing the current channel, provides a pleasing look and feel to the Galaxie service and includes album art for the currently playing, and previously played songs on each channel. Galaxie users can also review the playlist of the last 24 hours of songs played on each channel, the most requested feature.

“As we aggressively continue to roll-out our advanced digital TV service, we strive to differentiate our service with unique and compelling content,” stated Ernie Villicana, Director-Video Content Programming & Packaging. “We chose to offer the Galaxie music service to our customers, not only based on the high quality of the music programming, but also for the innovation and development that Stingray continues to deliver for users of the service, such as the interactive Galaxie application for Mediaroom,” Villicana concluded.

The 50 commercial-free music channels of the Galaxie music service will be included for no additional fee for all TV service customers of Hawaiian Telcom, Lumos Networks and Paul Bunyan Communications. Users will enjoy the professionally programmed music channels in all popular genres including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classical, Country and many more.
