“Personalized TV” provider Sezmi, whose service combines live TV, on-demand movies, Internet video and DVR capabilities, says its “Sezmi Select” service package now is available in 36 markets across 23 U.S. states, priced at $4.99 per month (for more background on Sezmi, click here.)

“Today, cable and satellite are the two traditional choices for TV entertainment, but they come at a high price. Frustrated consumers across the country are voicing their dissatisfaction by either adding on piecemeal solutions, turning to the Internet or by cutting the cord completely,” said Buno Pati, president and CEO at Sezmi. “Sezmi hears those unsatisfied customers loud and clear, and we’re responding by giving them a unique hybrid solution that seamlessly integrates digital broadcast television with online and on-demand video. Consumers want choice, they want flexibility, they want personalization, and most importantly, they want value. That’s what we’re offering.”

Potential customers can see if their address qualifies for service by going to www.Sezmi.com. They also can order their Sezmi system and subscribe for the service at www.BestBuy.com.

Later this year, the company plans to introduce another Sezmi subscription option that expands the content offering to include a lineup of the most-watched cable channels. Those interested in the expanded offering can subscribe to Sezmi Select now, and then upgrade their service tier once the cable network programming becomes available in their markets
