  • Boasting more than 61 signed Pay TV operators to its platform, MOBITV is continuing to solidify its position as the go-to provider helping operators retain subscribers and compete, while simultaneously making it easier to offer next-gen services through simplified content distribution methods

EMERYVILLE, Calif. — MOBITV, the leading App-Based Pay TV video streaming platform, today announces it has secured hosted streaming delivery rights from another 90 networks including Bloomberg Television, Discovery, MGM HD, Newsmax, Outside TV, Smithsonian Channel, Stingray Music, Univision, and others, bringing its total to more than 350 networks.

In June of this year, MOBITV announced it was the first multi-tenant video delivery solutions provider to secure hosted streaming delivery rights from popular networks such as A+E Networks, AMC Networks, Crown Media Family Networks, C-SPAN Networks, Disney and ESPN Media Networks, SHOWTIME®, Viacom, and others. These new additions will propel the MOBITV CONNECT™ managed service even further, helping operators go to market faster with a cost-effective model that doesn’t require material capital outlays or an upgrade to traditional headend infrastructure. With the new additions, MOBITV is able to deploy virtually all of our customer’s channel lineups on a managed service solution basis which saves them money and gives subscribers a superior viewing experience.

“The content community continues to support the MOBITV managed service offering and we continue to sign more operators as a result,” said Charlie Nooney, CEO and Chairman of MOBITV. “Feedback continues to be that our platform provides viewers a great experience and allows operators the ability to maintain a competitive edge in the market in a cost-effective manner to their Pay TV and broadband subscriber base. Adding more networks has put us in the lead within the marketplace, as we now have almost all possible channels within the cable lineup and continue to grow what we believe is giving us a competitive lead.”

“We have a core vision of being everywhere our audience is with the best in sports, news, entertainment and beyond,” said Scott Levine, Senior Vice President, Product & Technology for Univision Communications Inc. “Working with MOBITV helps Univision move closer to its vision, by enabling our partners – and our collective audiences – access to Univision’s programming everywhere they want.”

MOBITV has already signed more than 61 Pay TV operators to its signature platform, which accounts for a national footprint of more than 1 million U.S. subscribers. MOBITV’s prominence in the Pay TV industry continues to evolve alongside the changing industry.
