MTS becomes only Manitoba television provider to offer direct access to Netflix

WINNIPEG, MB – MTS (TSX:MBT), Manitoba’s leading full-service telecommunications provider, announced today that customers will now be able to access Netflix, the world’s leading Internet TV network, directly on MTS Ultimate TV.

MTS becomes the only television provider in Manitoba to offer the streaming service on set-top boxes, which removes the hassle of having to switch video inputs or purchase additional hardware.

“This is just the latest step in our ongoing transformation to become a customer-focused company that is the first choice for Manitobans,” said Heather Tulk, Chief Customer Officer, MTS. “We want our customers to be at the forefront of everything we do. The addition of Netflix to MTS Ultimate TV displays our commitment to bringing them the best entertainment viewing experience possible.”

Customers will now be able to access Netflix’s entire catalogue of TV shows and movies, such as Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, on channels 55 and 1055 or by pressing the interactive button on their remote. Viewers will still pay Netflix directly to watch their service.

“We are making it easier and more convenient for Manitobans to watch their favourite movies and television programs – all with the simple push of a button,” added Heather. “It’s a level of access and service that is unparalleled in the province.”
