Sky Catcher Communications announced plans to offer Digital Video Broadcast – Return Channel Satellite (DVB-RCS) services to the enterprise market in North America.

In conjunction with their technology partner Telenor-USA, the company is currently beta testing the system on the East Coast and plans to offer services nationwide next month.
