BT AND MCI TO OFFER VIDEO SERVICES FOR US TELEVISION

By CBR Staff Writer

The soon to be merged MCI Corp and British Telecommunications Plc are to launch a new broadcast services unit in the US. MCI will join with the Telecommunications Broadcast Services unit of British Telecom to offer a suite of new video services targeted at US television broadcasters and media companies. The companies say they will offer coast-to-coast terrestrial and satellite transmission services within the US, as well as providing new routes for bringing in programming from Europe and the rest of the world. The new alliance will join British Telecom’s Broadcast Services’ existing European teleport facilities in London, Paris, Brussels, Cologne and Moscow as well as MCI’s four US sites to provide customers with global reach. BT Broadcast Services is a $300m division of British Telecommunications Plc.
