Move takes over Inuk

April 22, 2009

Inuk, the IPTV service for students, has been bought by Move Networks for an undisclosed fee. Move Networks says the combination of Inuk's IPTV platform and its virtual set-top box technology would be able to offer viewers an internet television experience with no skipping or buffering.

"Inuk's IPTV platform is well positioned to deliver these new consumer expectations and Move Networks proprietary adaptive streaming and video publishing platform delivers an HD viewing experience via the current Internet infrastructure today," said John Edwards, executive chairman Move Networks.

Inuk offers its Freewire-branded platform to universities in the UK, Ireland and Canada. It has plans to launch in the United States and the Nordic region later this year.
