Broadcast and pay-TV technology provider Motive Television has received approval from Apple for its TabletTV Internet App to be available to any iPhone user globally. The new App is available from today on all Apple App Stores in the world for a cost of $4.99/£2.99 (€3.96).
The TabletTV Internet App enables users to access and watch any streamed channel and content available in their own market in one easy to use platform. Users must satisfy registration requirements for subscription or pay channels as determined by the channel providers.
Examples of the channels available in the UK include BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Demand 5, ITV Hub, All 4, Sky Go, YouTube, and more. Additionally, each user may customise his App to provide easy selection for favourite channels.
The TabletTV Internet App does not require any additional antenna or equipment and will work wherever there is an Internet connection.
TabletTV Internet is initially limited to iPhones, however, the Company is working on a version for all Android mobile phones and will make a further announcement once this version has been completed.
Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive, said that providing a mobile phone solution for television viewing was the latest step on Motive’s roadmap to providing TV content where and when people want to watch. “With about 750 million iPhones having been sold globally to date, TabletTV Internet addresses a very large potential market and revenue source for the Company. Apps that aggregate viewing options in one place with an attractive user interface have proved quite popular in the US and UK markets and the Company believes this product is well-suited for this quickly developing market,” he stated.
