NSSLGlobal expands at-sea TV range

NSSLGlobal is expanding its range of value added services with the launch of an onboard video-based entertainment system called CrewVision.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The launch builds on NSSLGlobal’s recent acquisition of Norwegian IPTV company snap.tv, adding an expanded list of entertainment products. CrewVision provides a range of new and previously released Hollywood movies, box sets, documentaries, world-wide news and sports summaries.

Maritime companies choose and pay for specific ‘content packages’, which are viewable on TVs, tablets and PCs. The content is streamed separately over the satellite via NSSLGlobal’s multicast technology, without affecting onboard internet speeds.

The system has a content refresh capability, which updates the movie and TV catalogue each month. New movies are typically made available 6-8 weeks after cinematic release.  

“The importance of crew welfare can often be overlooked by shipping companies,” said Andrew Sirkett, marine commercial manager, NSSLGlobal.

“With MLC-2006 regulations in place, there is now a requirement for shipowners to enhance the working environment and boost crew morale. What’s more, crew are expensive to replace and re-train, and many, particularly younger crew members, are unused to extended periods without access to internet and entertainment services.”

“A simple yet cost-effective way to enable this is by giving crews access to a wide range of TV programmes and films via a service such as CrewVision. This, in addition to NSSLGlobal’s Crew Unite service, ensures that crew have access to entertainment without affecting on board internet speeds.”{/mprestriction}
