Live and on-demand TV Everywhere delivery specialist MobiTV has confirmed that its platform partnership with Deutsche Telekom’s Entertain2Go streaming service has successfully completed the first phase of the rollout. The new multiscreen service extends the robust Entertain service to deliver live TV and on-demand programming across screens.
“Advancements in wireless technology, network quality and content availability are changing the way consumers discover, access, and view video programming,” said Charlie Nooney, chairman and chief executive officer at MobiTV. “Consumers want to be able to choose when, where, and on which devices they view their content. Deutsche Telekom has been at the forefront of this transformation in the industry and the MobiTV team is proud to be at the core of the solution.”
MobiTV’s software solution has been deployed to expand Deutsche Telekom’s converged service offering, extending the delivery of live TV and on-demand programming to multiple screens. By integrating MobiTV’ s software solution, Deutsche Telekom has broadened its IPTV service to deliver primetime shows, live sporting events and VoD services to smartphones, tablets, PCs and IP-connected TVs.
“Since rolling out Entertain to our customers, we have continued to offer options to ensure that our customers are provided the latest in technology so they have the best quality of experience,” said Marc Schwarze, VP Consumer Marketing TV, Telekom Deutschland. “MobiTV’s collaboration has helped us change the landscape for our customers and will allow them to break out of the home and experience their content wherever and whenever.”
