MTN agrees BYOD TV deal with Motive

Motive Television, via its fully-owned subsidiary Motive Television Services, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with MTN Satellite Communications, which will allow MTN access to Motive's BYOD (bring your own device) TV technology to develop new services for its maritime customers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}MTN, recently acquired by EMC, will be able to offer TV services to its customers in the cruise, yachts, ferries, oil & gas, commercial shipping and government markets, with Motive already working on the modifications and customisation required for MTN to begin demonstrations of BYOD TV in September 2015.

Should MTN decide to go forward with a full product roll-out beyond that, Motive will complete a marketing agreement with MTN whereby MTN is licensed to market and offer these services to its clients and customers.

“Through partnering with MTN, a world-leading supplier of maritime communications, Motive can greatly extend the marketing reach of its BYOD TV technology to thousands of ships including ferries, cruise ships, yachts, and commercial vessels that are clients and customers of MTN for maritime communications services,” said Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive.

“This cooperation with MTN could quickly make Motive's BYOD TV an industry-leading solution.”{/mprestriction}
