Stingray is entering the U.S. market after winning a break-through contract with a client that operates cable systems in 21 states.
Stingray won away one of Music Choice's clients, Altice USA, a New York-based broadband and video services company that has 4.9 million residential and business customers.
Stingray spokesperson said, "We'd been working on it for six months. . . . We signed with them at 4 p.m. on Monday. And at midnight we were live, with five million subscribers."
