Working on tech to deliver TV across mobile phones, tablets, PCs, Internet TVs and set-top boxes.
The solution will be powered by MobiTV’s TV Everywhere and will give consumers the option to watch live and on demand TV on any authorised device irrespective of manufacturer or platform.
It follows a successful trial implementation of the converged multi-screen service that integrates TV Everywhere into Deutsche Telekom's existing IPTV service, Entertain.
TV Everywhere integrates with existing TV infrastructure and back-end systems, so broadcasters looking to extend their content to other platforms can do so – at reduced time and cost.
Charlie Nooney, CEO of MobiTV, said: “Consumer acceptance of TV ‘on the go’ has opened the door to a truly converged multi-screen offering that will allow broadcasters, cable operators and pay TV providers to extend the delivery of primetime shows, live sporting events and VOD services to tablets, smartphones and PCs.
“Deutsche Telekom has acknowledged this shift in the market. It is well prepared to meet the demand for ‘TV Everywhere’ through the integration of MobiTV’s TV Everywhere solution into their service ecosystem to support content delivery and other critical backend services.”
MobiTV is already the exclusive national provider of mobile TV services for AT&T U-verse Live TV, NFL Mobile on Verizon, Sprint TV and T-Mobile TV among others.
