ConnectedLyfe Officially Launches as a New Triple-Play Provider on UTOPIA

Last month, I reported that ConnectedLyfe would be a new service provider on UTOPIA. Today, the press release is out to make that launch official. ConnectedLyfe has also updated their website with some details as to what they will be offering. It looks pretty run-of-the-mill as far as services and pricing, but this little tidbit stood out.

Now you’ll be able to access your TV from any device inside your home, or on the go through your PDA or iPhone.

So, if I’m reading this correctly, it sounds like ConnectedLyfe is bringing their own version of TV Everywhere to the game a la Comcast. Given that the channel line-up appears to be a little different from the white-boxed UTOPIA offerings, I’m also going to guess that they’re using their own video headend, especially since they seem to be pushing VOD as a key part of their package. It should be interesting to see if this start-up can throw down both with incumbents and the existing providers on the network.

    Utopia had an emergency board meeting in march to discuss impending litigation. Any idea who is suing them and for what? Related to the Brigham SAA maybe?

    ..or them suing RUS. The Board was told that lawsuit could take 2 years and cost $2-$3 million.

    Orem has kicked $65k into the pot to pay legal fees.

    Cities have started down the slippery slope of paying UTOPIA costs in addition to the bond payments.
