Motive Television, the enabling technology provider for broadcasters and pay-TV operators, has added OTT channels to its TabletTV product.
In the UK, they will include YouTube, BBC iPlayer, STV Player, ITV Player, All4, BT Sport, and Netflix, while in the US a similar selection of the most popular ones will be made available.
The internet channels will be accessible through the TabletTV apps as an addition to all broadcast TV channels.
The apps with internet channels will be tested in Beta this summer with a group of existing TabletTV users and offered to the market as a whole this autumn.
Commenting on the development, Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive said: “The addition of internet catch-up TV and on-demand channels will expand and enhance the value of TabletTV to the user and make Motive’s apps unique in the industry. Together with the launch of Mobile PVR, announced earlier this month, Motive is developing the most convenient, simplest, and lowest cost mobile viewing alternative to an immense market of mobile viewers”.
