September 20, 2018

MobiTV, the app-based US pay-TV video streaming platform, has secured hosted streaming delivery rights from another 90 networks including Bloomberg Television, Discovery, MGM HD, Newsmax, Outside TV, Smithsonian Channel, Stingray Music, Univision, and others, bringing its total to more than 350 networks.

In June of this year, MobiTV announced it was the first multi-tenant video delivery solutions provider to secure hosted streaming delivery rights from popular networks such as A+E Networks, AMC Networks, Crown Media Family Networks, C-Span Networks, Disney and ESPN Media Networks, Showtime, Viacom, and others.

“The content community continues to support the MobiTV managed service offering and we continue to sign more operators as a result,” said Charlie Nooney, CEO and Chairman of MobiTV. “Feedback continues to be that our platform provides viewers a great experience and allows operators the ability to maintain a competitive edge in the market in a cost-effective manner to their pay-TV and broadband subscriber base. Adding more networks has put us in the lead within the marketplace, as we now have almost all possible channels within the cable lineup and continue to grow what we believe is giving us a competitive lead.”

“We have a core vision of being everywhere our audience is with the best in sports, news, entertainment and beyond,” said Scott Levine, Senior Vice President, Product & Technology for Univision Communications Inc. “Working with MobiTV helps Univision move closer to its vision, by enabling our partners – and our collective audiences – access to Univision’s programming everywhere they want.”
