under an agreement announced Monday.
Under the agreement, CenterSpan's 'C-StarOne' service will provide

including movies, music, sports and TV services.
That includes programming from cable networks such as E! Entertainment
Television, Ovation, Triangle Television Network, Courtroom Television Network
and Game Show Network.

'We chose CenterSpan because they have a service that keeps costs low without
diminishing the quality of entertainment our subscribers enjoy in their living
room,' MeTV senior vice president Michael Dutcher said.
'The rapid growth we're seeing in the adoption of our service demands a
secure, scalable network capable of maintaining that quality as our subscriber
base increases,' he added.
