Buckeye Boosts Local VOD

Buckeye CableSystem is bolstering its video-on-demand offerings.

Using SeaChange International Inc.’s video server and software platform, including the vendor’s local-content encoders, the operator has added programming from local network affiliates and high-school sporting events to Buckeye VOD.

Buckeye recently launched VOD packages for Home Box Office/Cinemax and Starz! on an a-la-carte and subscription basis, respectively, joining fare such as movies, events, NFL Network game highlights, children's programming and free content.

The operator serves about 133,000 subscribers in Toledo, Ohio, and southeast Michigan, including more than 42,000 digital homes.
