Through the MobiTV Connect Platform, operators can transition their network’s video delivery system to an extendable IP-based approach that includes on-demand, live TV, catch-up TV, network DVR, and recommendations.
“It is becoming apparent that app-based TV is the future for delivering Pay services. In a world where video is growing increasingly competitive from OTT offerings, operators must reduce the expense and overhead associated with pay-TV,” said Charlie Nooney, CEO and Chairman of MobiTV.
“Given that we are a software-based solution that provides both in-network and managed service options, we provide a level playing field for operators in terms of cost and, equally important, we allow them to take a leadership role in the user experience.”
“Sustaining our legacy cable TV architecture has become cost prohibitive while the experience it provides our customers struggles to satisfy expectations,” said Jody Heustess, Vice President, Marketing & Customer Care at ATMC.
“MobiTV, we feel, gives us a platform by which we can meet our customer’s demands without the need for constant high cost capital investments.”
