NSSLGlobal adds TV at sea with SnapTV acquisition

NSSLGlobal reports that it has acquired Norwegian IPTV company SnapTV, a deal which will see the companies work together to promote and develop entertainment services for maritime and offshore companies.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Established in 2006, SnapTV provides a range of infotainment software and hardware, and already holds a series of TV and media distribution rights. Its infotainment software services include television, recording (nPVR), video on demand and radio.

The deal is part of a new NSSLGlobal investment programme under which the company aims to proactively seek out young innovative companies with applications that will work as an Added Value Service for NSSLGlobal customers, whilst the two parties continue to work independently and attract their own clients.

“SnapTV is an obvious investment choice for us and there are very clear synergies between our satcom technologies and SnapTV’s offering,” said Sally-Anne Ray, CEO, NSSLGlobal.

“SnapTV’s core streaming technology, with fully licensed content, is compelling to customers. Combine this with our ability to broadcast SnapTV over a separate satellite channel to VSAT IP@SEA vessels — without affecting other operational or crew welfare services or forcing customers to increase their satellite bandwidth packages – and it becomes an even more compelling way to enhance the working environment and crew welfare on ships and oil rigs.”

“With the combination of both companies’ knowledge and experience, we look forward to emerging with a stronger, united product portfolio.”{/mprestriction}
