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.
