MobiTV, the US provider of TV everywhere solutions, has completed the first phase of the rollout of its partnership with Deutsche Telekom set up to take the German telco's IPTV platform Entertain to mobile devices.
The new multiscreen service Entertain to go will deliver live TV and on-demand programming across multiple 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 CEO 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 proposition of live TV and on-demand programming to multiple screens. By integrating MobiTV's software solution, the telco has expanded its IPTV service to deliver prime time shows, live sports events and video-on-demand (VOD) services to smartphones, tablets, PCs and connected TV sets.
"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, vice-president consumer marketing TV at 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."
