Cablevision: iO, iO, Interactive We Will Go


Cablevision Systems Corp. said Thursday that it has successfully deployed five advanced interactive-television applications to iO: Interactive Optimum digital-cable customers across its entire service area.

The MSO added that it has more than doubled the size of the subscription-games service it introduced for all iO customers earlier this month with the addition of a “Casino” games package featuring unlimited access to seven gaming favorites.

“This is a watershed moment in the development of our iO digital-cable service because it represents the extension of innovative interactive applications, which had formerly been available only in select areas, across our entire customer base,” Cablevision vice president of interactive-television development and operations Patrick Donoghue said in a prepared statement.
