TabletTV upgrade introduces over-the-air, over-the-top capabilities

Tablet Television LLC, the joint venture between Motive Television plc and Granite Broadcasting Corporation, said it is launching TabletTV Plus in mid-fourth quarter within the United States.

The TabletTV Plus App will provide TabletTV users with an unmatched total mobile television solution that is unique in the industry. Through the new service, viewers will have access to all broadcast channels available in their market, operate the world´s first mobile personal video recorder (PVR) to time shift programs to fit their own schedules and, when connected to the Internet, watch free and paid Internet television channels — all within the TabletTV Plus App.

Additionally, TabletTV Plus users can simultaneously surf the Internet, check emails and browse Facebook and Twitter, all while watching television. They will also have the ability to use Google Chromecast to cast the viewing content to their television screens.

TabletTV Plus will initially be available for the Apple iOS platform only in the United States, and then Android device versions will be released at a later date. TabletTV users who already have TPod tuners will be able to download the new TabletTV Plus App without additional cost and it will be compatible with their existing devices.
