Novus Entertainment (commonly known simply as Novus) is a Canadian telecommunications company providing television, digital phone, and high-speed Internet services via a fibre optic network. The company is licensed by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (the CRTC) as a Class 1 Broadcast Distribution Undertaking for both Metro Vancouver and Toronto. Novus presently provides services to apartments, condominiums, and businesses in Metro Vancouver. Novus is one of the few broadband Internet carriers in Canada to offer a Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) network.[1] The company continues to expand its service in Metro Vancouver.

Novus is also in the business of leasing dark fibre to other communications service providers and to businesses.

Internet

In July, 2011, Novus announced its 300 Mbit/s Internet service, claiming to be “Canada’s fastest Internet service” to go into effect July 2011. Due to its use of Metro Ethernet rather than DOCSIS or DSL technology, the carrier allows a direct RJ-45 connection into a wall jack, circumventing the use of a modem.

Television

Novus offers analogue and digital (SD and HD) television services. The carrier continues to add standard and high definition channels to its lineup as they become available.

Novus’ cable community channel is branded as Novus TV or NVTV 4.

Telephone

In April 2008, Novus launched its digital phone (VOIP) service through its fibre optic network.

Novus TV

Novus TV is the locally based community channel operated by Novus Entertainment Inc.

Novus TV covers a variety of events and issues happening in and around Vancouver and the lower mainland and airs numerous locally produced shows, short films, music videos, etc. created by community members.
