The service will deliver feature-length movies from Blockbuster to the televisions of 5,000 TELUS high-speed Internet customers in British Columbia, using TELUS' ADSL network and a DSL-enabled set top box.
TELUS plans to continue to partner with content providers and to use its ADSL network infrastructure and portal abilities to deliver free and transaction-based content such as video, audio, animation and live events to Internet and ADSL customers, according to Roy Osing, executive vice-president and president, TELUS Advanced Communications.
Following the trial, TELUS will launch a broadband commercial video-on-demand service on its Internet portals for broadband customers. The TELUS portal network currently consists of MyBC.com, Alberta.com and the soon-to-be launched Toronto portal. The commercial service will let customers choose from a library of videos through their televisions.
