This plan includes 7 days free trial, 7 days of Catchup TV and over 50 hours of Cloud DVR.

Robertson, a 12-year veteran in Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and Over the Top (OTT) TV operations, stated “Today, as we add live sports, news, entertainment and more to the Brightcast platform, we want to enhance the way people consume TV.” “By bringing together live TV, on-demand shows & movies and serving them up on viewer’s favorite devices, Brightcast can become a viewer’s primary source of television at home or on the go.”

Premium and Feature Add-Ons

Though some great features like Cloud DVR and Catchup TV are already included, Brightcast subscribers can further enhance their viewing experience by choosing premium content or feature add-ons that best fit their lifestyle:

  • Multi-Screen($8/month): Our Multi Screens add-on gives viewers 5 concurrent streams, so members of the same household can enjoy Brightcast simultaneously on separate devices
