WINNIPEG, April 26 /CNW/ - MTS is pleased to announce that it has introduced TV Call Display to its MTS Ultimate TV customers. Those customers who already subscribe to Call Display on their MTS Home Phone automatically receive this new service free of charge through their MTS Ultimate TV.

"MTS Ultimate TV, what we think is the best television viewing experience in Manitoba, is one of our fastest growing services," said Kelvin Shepherd, President, MTS. "The service already features several innovations, such as Whole Home PVR, that competitors in Manitoba cannot match. With the launch of TV Call Display, we are adding even more value for our customers to a service that is already very strong. Not only do they get an innovative product, but they get to enjoy it from the comfort of their couch."

TV Call Display gives customers the ability to see the name and number of all incoming calls by simply viewing it on their television screen. In addition, this service allows customers to view recent calls, personalize their display settings and access the last call received.
