EchoStar adds VOD to ViP-TV service

Steven Kim

With the launch of its ViP-TV service taken care of, EchoStar has added VOD capability to its new IPTV platform. It's nothing unique to ViP-TV, but a carryover of the DISH On Demand service. However, in the all-important marketing department, it does allow for ViP-TV providers to advertise "push and pull" service. It also brings some feature parity to the DirecTV VOD service. No word on what HD options will be available, but we're hoping that the Dish On Demand HD that was advertised at CEDIA as "coming soon" shows up, um, soon on both platforms. Any readers with the ViP-TV service, please let us know your experience!
