After changing its name earlier this month, Breezeline — formerly Atlantic Broadband — announced Monday the debut of its next-generation TV service: Breezeline Stream TV.

The new service uses Internet Protocol TV, or IPTV, technology with a home’s Wi-Fi network to deliver hundreds of video channels, thousands of on-demand programs, and access to streaming providers, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max and others. The service will provide live and recorded programs on compatible devices inside and outside the home, and will be available in New Hampshire this month, with phased launches throughout the year in other service areas.

In southeastern Connecticut, Breezeline, the nation’s eighth-largest cable operator, serves parts of East Lyme, Montville, New London and Waterford.

Breezeline announced Jan. 10 that it was changing its name from Atlantic Broadband. The rebranding followed a major expansion, including the company's acquisition in September 2021 of two cable systems in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, pushing the company’s customer base to more than 1.6 million.

“We’re no longer just an East Coast provider, and we’ve long offered much more than broadband, so our company identity must evolve with us,” Frank van der Post, president of Breezeline, said in a statement. “The name Breezeline marks the beginning of a new, exciting era of transforming our company through new growth, while also elevating the customer experience through enhanced customer care options, innovative products, and investment in the latest technologies.”
