CableClix (USA), Inc. (OTCPK:CCLX) (“CableClix” or the “Company”) Kris Domich, President of CableClix (USA), Inc. is pleased to announce that CableClix (USA), Inc, has completed the construction of its USA-East head end in Winchester, VA. This cable television distribution point is the first of several head ends CableClix will build across the country in 2016-2017. The head end is currently broadcasting twelve live television streams and is capable of supporting a customer base located anywhere in the country. This location will support CableClix’s initial customer pilot launch in early 2017. The head end was built with enough data center power and cooling, telecommunications bandwidth, and transcoding capacity to stream several hundred live television streams concurrently. “We have enjoyed making our vision of live television streaming over our Virtual Private Cable Network™, or VPCN™ a reality”, says Mark Bayliss, CTO and founder of CableClix. Mark added, “Anyone can come up with a great way to do video on demand and be successful. To develop a way to provide live streaming tele in the vision in a lightweight package in a manner that complies with FCC regulations is the new holy grail of television broadcasting.”
In addition to the build out of the first CableClix head end, the company has been working with several manufacturers to produce its own set top box which will allow broadband users to bypass the monopoly of Cable and Satellite providers for live television programing. “CableClix wants to provide USA Cable and Satellite broadband customers with a choice for their set top box as well as their television programing. Our set top box development will help supply the much needed competition for live broadcast television, and to provide consumers with choices for set top boxes, video programing, and other advanced services”, Says Mark Bayliss CTO and founder of CableClix.
CableClix fully supports The FCC Commissioner’s statements on opening the Cable box market. Statement made by Tom Wheeler, Chairman of the FCC states:
“We’ve been here before. Decades ago, if you wanted to have a landline in your home, you had to lease your phone from Ma Bell. There was little choice in telephones, and prices were high. The FCC unlocked competition and empowered consumers with a simple but powerful rule: Consumers could connect the telephones and modems of their choice to the telephone network. Competition and game-changing innovation followed, from lower-priced phones to answering machines to technology that is the foundation of the Internet. Should pay-TV continue to be an exception? I believe, and Congress has made clear, the answer is no. You should have choices in how you access the video programming you are paying for, as well. In the end, this proposal is about one thing: putting the future of TV in consumer’s hands. You should have options that competition provides. It’s time to unlock the set-top box market — let’s let innovators create, and then let consumers choose.”

CableClix is also in development of a smart-device app. Both the app and set top box are slated for release end of 2016 to first quarter of 2017. “We are looking forward to closing out this year strong with additional product development and continuing to make excellent progress on our national cable TV franchise agreements”, remarked Kris Domich, President and CEO of CableClix (USA), Inc.
About CableClix (USA), Inc.
CableClix, Inc. was formed in 2013 to be a leading provider of high definition streaming television over broadband connections. Our goals remain as they were at our inception; deliver quality television programming in high and ultrahigh definition, including local network content, directly to the local consumer, on nearly any device, at any time. CableClix is different from others that have attempted to deliver similar services in the past – because we create partnerships with the national networks, local affiliates, and local ISP’s. Commonly referred to as television rebroadcasting, the concept is often one-sided in nature and ultimately the end consumer is left to pay significant monthly subscription fees for a plethora of channels that go mostly unwatched. Concurrently, local broadcast affiliates feel the ever increasing pressure of internet-based streaming services often broadcasting the same content and diminishing the relevance of traditional TV viewing. CableClix founders believed there was an opportunity to bridge the gap between the network and affiliate interests, and at the same time, give the consumers what they are clearly asking for: the convenience of watching their favorite shows any time, unaltered, and without a barrage of irrelevant marketing and advertisement.
Another important aspect of CableClix approach to streaming television is our appreciation for the local ISP’s, especially the Wireless ISP’s (WISPs). All ISP’s have experienced the pressure of needing to increase upstream bandwidth to support the growing popularity of streaming video. The cost of these increases in bandwidth are either passed on to the end customer, or in competitive markets, taken directly from the bottom line. WISPs in particular tend to serve customers in rural areas, and while are still part of a given metropolitan broad cast area, are unable to receive local broadcasts without a satellite connection due to line of sight or distance from transmitters. In nearly all of those cases, cable is not an option for those customers due to the unavailability of the required infrastructure. CableClix founder and owner/operator of a WISP understood this problem firsthand, which triggered the desire to solve this growing TV viewing conundrum:
“How can we deliver high definition, local and premium television to the public, especially rural customers while simultaneously relieving bandwidth strain on ISPs, in a manner that protects and enforces the local broadcast area boundaries and respects the intellectual property of the networks and production houses?”
CableClix is committed to the development and continual enhancement of products and services that deliver the programming that consumers want affordably and reliably. We achieve this using best-of-breed technologies, innovative people, and a customer-centric underpinning woven into everything we do. We respect the ownership, talent, and effort that goes into developing the news, entertainment, and other intellectual property that we stream, and always respect and enforce the boundaries of metropolitan broadcast areas. We value our partnerships with ISP’s and constantly seek out new ways to optimize their network resources to ensure the best customer experience. We are excited to be a part of the transformation of traditional viewing to the next generation of customized streaming TV.
