Gizat launches live maritime streaming TV service

Gizat Global Communication has launched a new live TV service that will enable its partners to deliver live streaming TV channels to onboard crew. The service uses partner connectivity capabilities for content delivery.

The streaming package includes approximately 150+ popular live TV channels from all over the world as well as global channels out of a catalogue of over 400 channels. Gizat also provides 10,000 hours of video on demand (VOD) content.

Viewers will be able to watch these channels via a dedicated and user or password protected URL. Content can be viewed on a main screen located in the crew facility room or by using a dedicated app  (IOS/Android) on a crew member’s private smartphone.

Once a customer has logged into the portal, they will be able to view all offered channels and VOD with a simple click.

According to Gizat, just a 1Mbps MIR (maximum information rate) is enough to access the channels in very high quality.

Channel viewing can be customised, for example a user can view the available channels by country or by theme.

The service is provided as a monthly subscription plan at US $75.00 to $95.00/month per ship or subject subscription plan type. The price includes all distribution and licensing costs, and the best part is - no hardware or software installation is required.

Gizat anticipates that the streaming service will help companies to increase their revenues & margins, extend their service portfolio, ensure competitiveness, and enhance customer ‘stickiness’ with them as their provider. Streaming TV may also increase service capacity consumed by customers.
