It has been announced that Motive Television has successfully completed its first milestone in its joint venture with Granite Broadcasting Corporation, BCJV LLC, to enable Television Anytime Anywhere over broadcast television to tablet devices. The original Technical Feasibility Analysis and Business Plan, which was approved by the JV, was completed by the company on 20 April, 2012.
Throughout the coming weeks discussions will be held with a number of additional broadcasters which may be interested in joining or affiliating with the JV. It is anticipated that technical development will begin in June 2012, leading to a commercial launch in Spring 2013. With 60 million tablets already in use in the US Market and an additional 40 million predicted to be sold each year, Motive Television believes this is a large opportunity.
The project with Sagemcom and Digiturk in Turkey is in the process of debugging and final pre-launch testing. Motive is in discussions with these clients regarding continuing support and maintenance agreements and further product enhancements post-launch.
The Mediaset Premium on Demand platform, powered by Motive's Television Anytime, continues to grow rapidly and the Company is in discussions with the client regarding continuing support agreements.
Motive Television provides software and services to the global television industry, enabling Television Anytime Anywhere. Motive's patented and proprietary technology platform responds to the heightened viewer demand for watching what they want, when they want, on whatever device they want; and is driven by the mandatory switchover from analogue to digital broadcasting as mandated by the International Telecommunication Union.
