NEW ORLEANS -- Rentrak entered into a multiyear deal with Cox Communications to provide video-on-demand measurement services, which now gives Rentrak coverage of the top 10 cable operators.

"Announcing a multiyear deal with Cox, a true leader in the cable industry, further solidifies the importance of Rentrak's reputation as a third-party leader in accurate, timely and customizable data," said Carol Hinnant, Rentrak vice president of business development for OnDemand Essentials.
