Motive to add Internet (OTT) Channels to TabletTV
- Adding OTT Channels make TabletTV the universal choice for mobile TV viewing
Motive Television PLC (AIM: MTV), the technology provider to broadcasters and pay television operators, is pleased to announce that it has developed new technology to add Internet-delivered (also known as Over-the-Top or OTT) channels to its TabletTV product.
Examples of Internet channels that will be available in the UK include YouTube, BBC iPlayer, STV Player, ITV Player, All4, BT Sport, and Netflix. In the US, a similar selection of the most popular Internet channels will be available. Further, TabletTV users will be able to add and customize their individual list of Internet channels based on their viewing preferences. The Internet channels will be made available through the TabletTV Apps as an addition to all broadcast TV channels, making TabletTV the one-stop place for all entertainment and information on Apple and Android mobile devices.
The TabletTV UK and US apps with Internet channels included will be tested in a Beta version this summer with a group of existing users of TabletTV and made available to the overall market in early autumn.
Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive commented, “The addition of Internet catch-up TV and on-demand channels will expand and enhance the value of TabletTV to the user and make Motive’s apps unique in the industry. Together with the launch of Mobile PVR, announced earlier this month, Motive is developing the most convenient, simplest, and lowest cost mobile viewing alternative to an immense market of mobile viewers.”
