Lime and Amino announce Caribbean TV upgrade

LIME has signed a contract with Amino, leaders in IPTV, for them to supply enhanced set-top boxes to support the rollout of pay TV services.

LIME TV delivers over 100 channels of pay TV entertainment – plus video-on-demand – to customers in the Cayman Islands and Barbados. The TV line-up includes a wide range of entertainment – including local and international news, premium content channels, lifestyle and sports.

The service will introduce Amino’s A140 and A540 set-top boxes which will provide a better ’carrier class’ Wi-Fi signal to deliver entertainment around the home and enable customers to set up pay TV for themselves reducing the need for service engineers.

Amino CEO Donald McGarva commented:  “This is an exciting and innovative deployment which demands devices that are ultra-reliable, future proof and capable of easy home installation. Combining our field-proven STBs with carrier class Wi-Fi will help LIME rollout services quickly and cost-effectively whilst at the same time supporting an exciting range of entertainment services.”

Dianne Bissoon, Vice President of TV and Entertainment at LIME added: “Pay TV is an important and growing service for LIME and we are keen to introduce improvements like these set top boxes which help improve the experience we are delivering to our customers.”

LIME is a leading full service telecoms provider in the Caribbean region and the largest telecommunications provider by revenue across the markets in which it operates. The company provides a range of telecoms services to the communities of 13 Caribbean islands: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Turks and Caicos.
