By integrating MobiTV’ s software, Deutsche Telekom has broadened its IPTV service to deliver primetime shows, live sporting events and VOD services to smartphones, tablets, PCs and IP-connected TVs.
“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 chief executive officer 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.”
