Motive Television has confirme that the first TabletTV US and UK apps for Android devices are available for download on the Google Playstore. Users of Samsung Android tablets will be able to join those with iPads in being able to watch and record over-the-air television (Freeview in the UK) on their tablets in time for the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
With this first version of the Android TabletTV US and TabletTV UK apps the Company increases the potential target market of users by nearly 75 pe rcent for its and patent pending TabletTV technology. Initially the first Android TabletTV apps are available for Samsung 10 and 7-inch devices with more coming later this year.
Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive commented, “The addition of Android devices to the TabletTV family is a major step forward due to the growing popularity of Android devices. The global potential market for TabletTV numbers is in the hundreds of millions – by the end of 2013 it is estimated that 6 per cent of the global population used a tablet and 22 per cent a smartphone. Further, the use of tablets for watching television is growing dramatically; as of December 2014 Mail Online reported that 17 per cent of the British population watched TV on their tablets. There is little question that TabletTV is the right product at the right time.”
