Motive Television, the London-based provider of technology-based solutions to the television industry, has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Motive Television Services, has signed a final Operation and Services Agreement with Siyaya Free To Air TV in South Africa.
Under the Agreement, Motive will install, integrate, and operate Siyaya’s VoD platform in conjunction with the expected launch of Siyaya’s television services on the Sentech Freevision DTH satellite service in the first half of 2014.
Once Siyaya has won a television licence for digital terrestrial broadcasting, and when Siyaya subsequently launches services over DTT, Motive will serve as the primary technology partner for Siyaya, providing technology solutions, products, and system integration for the implementation and continued operation of Siyaya’s VoD platform.
Leonard M Fertig, Chief Executive Officer of Motive Television, commented: “The completion of this Operations and Services Agreement marks another milestone in the growing partnership between Motive and Siyaya, and we look forward to the upcoming launch of Siyaya on the Freevision DTH platform. We have been working closely with Siyaya since February 2013 in the planning of their services and will now move directly into preparation for launch.
