Greenlight partners with DIRECTV on streaming service

Listen to this article

Greenlight Networks is partnering with DIRECTV to provide a streaming service that runs over high-speed fiber-optic cable, a collaboration that Greenlight CEO Mark Murphy calls “a game-changer.”

The new DIRECTV streaming service will provide access to live, local TV channels, on-demand content and premium programming, the company said.

Customers will have the option to access the service with a DIRECTV Gemini device, which is similar to a traditional cable box, or through an app on a smart TV or streaming device.

“This collaboration is a solution to the industry’s growing demand for high-quality TV streaming services coupled with reliable connectivity,” Mark Murphy, CEO of Henrietta-based Greenlight, said in a news release. “Each day, more customers are considering ‘cutting the cord,’ but they also want to be sure that they can access news, sports and premium programming.”

The Greenlight fiber internet service provides synchronous speeds that eliminate lag, the company says.

DIRECTV packages through Greenlight range from $64.99 to $154.99 per month, with billing from a new DIRECTV account that is separate from the Greenlight account.
