VMedia is a Toronto-based IPTV provider, offering television and internet service in Ontario. It operates as a fully licensed BDU (broadcasting distribution undertaking), under the auspices of the CRTC, offering a unique entertainment portal that combines traditional subscription television service with access to internet-delivered content.

VMedia officially launched on March 26, 2013 and is currently available only in select areas of Southern Ontario as well as the Greater Toronto Area. IPTV Service will gradually be expanded to cover all major urban centres in Ontario and eventually into parts of Quebec.[1]

VMedia’s set top, the VBox,[2] powers both TV programming as well as access to internet content on the TV screen, via 100’s of apps in movies, social media, music, games and multicultural TV sites.
