New Deal for DirecTV, Multiband

Multiband Corp. will incorporate DirecTV Inc.’s direct-broadcast satellite services into its bundled offering following a new expanded agreement between the two companies.

Multiband provides voice, data and video systems and services to multiple-dwelling units, including apartment buildings and time-share resorts.

The agreement includes provisions for Multiband to deploy DirecTV's new single-wire solution for multiunit buildings.

“Our newly expanded relationship with Multiband provides an increased focus on bundling and customer service and further illustrates DirecTV's commitment to the MDU community,” DirecTV vice president of sales development and strategy Daren A. Benzi said in a prepared statement.
