DESCRIPTION: The objective of this system is to provide a single "point-of-entry" for television service and provide television channels to users throughout the base, via a method alternative to traditional cable television delivery methods.

The goal for this system is to provide an alternative to traditional cable television delivery methods by utilizing a single "point-of-entry" as a source of television service.

All interested vendors shall submit a response demonstrating their capability to provide the described requirements listed in the attached document.
