GTA TeleGuam expands its IPTV channel lineup

GTA TeleGuam is enhancing its Guam Digital Television (GUdTV) service lineup with the addition of nine new digital and HDTV channels. Included in the new mix are two new digital, one international radio channel and six HD channels.

To date, GUdTV offers over 270 digital channels including about 60 premium channels, 30 HD channels, and 26 international channels. While still be available in digital format, the six new HD channels include CNN, TNT, TBS, USA, SyFy and E!

In addition to offering both an upgraded channel guide, which is also available online, GTA TeleGuam assigned new display numbers to selected channels, including Pay Per View.

As the incumbent service provider facing wireless and wireline competition from all sides, including aggressive cable operators that are also offering quad-play service sets, TeleGuam's latest TV and continual broadband expansion efforts (both Fiber to the Home and VDSL2) reflect its effort to stay on its competitive toes. With the low $29.95 entry price point, the island's cable operator will be forced to respond with a competitive offering.

Thus far, GTA TeleGuam's TV efforts are paying off. Since being launched in 2008, 5,000 residential and business customers have subscribed to GUdTV.
