Aiming to help pay-TV providers expand their services beyond the traditional set-top box, MobiTV has launched a new IP video delivery solution, the MobiTV Connect Platform.

mobitvThe platform is claimed to be able to allow cable operators to significantly upgrade their user experience and use connected TV devices and streaming boxes which are already in a large majority of US homes.

The MobiTV Connect Platform gives pay-TV and cable operators the option of selecting an in-network deployment or a MobiTV operator grade managed service. Both are based on a development process which allows continuous improvement, rapid response to market trends and evolution of technology. MobiTV adds that its end-to-end platform allows fast time to market, simple integrations and upgrades every six weeks.

“The in-home TV experience is changing rapidly, creating both challenges and opportunities for providers as they navigate the new reality of delivering pay-TV services in today’s market,” said Charlie Nooney, CEO of MobiTV. “This is only the beginning for us. We continue to break barriers and utilize our long history in the video delivery space to help more companies future-proof their offerings through our ever-evolving, agile solutions within the video delivery ecosystem.”

Already the company has signed up a major customer for its new services, the US’s sixth largest cable operator C Spire. “At C Spire, our inspiration is to bring premium viewing experiences that deliver tailored TV content to consumers on the devices they love,” said senior vice president of Consumer Markets, Suzy Hays. “MobiTV embraced our vision and worked closely with us to develop the software platform for the cutting-edge service we are announcing today.”
