MobiTV Comes to the BlackBerry Torch

Posted by at 10:05 am on August 13, 2010

MobiTV now offers the ability to download mobile media content for local playback on the BlackBerry Torch smartphone from AT&T. Using Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology, MobiTV now offers downloadable content alongside live TV and video-on-demand on the new smartphone.

Working closely with content partners, MobiTV created a DRM solution that spans multiple devices, allowing users to download content to their mobile devices and watch offline with strong DRM protection.

“The DRM component of our technology platform is one of the elements that make this offline playback solution possible,” said Kay Johansson, CTO, MobiTV, Inc. “Additional components, such as our Optimized Delivery Server which delivers high quality media while reducing network usage, further enhance the scalability and potential of our offering. Continued technology developments like these are critical for MobiTV to maintain our leadership position in multiplatform media delivery.”

Beyond offline playback, live TV and a large VOD library, the MobiTV service on the BlackBerry Torch features enhanced discoverability of new content, resulting in a more personalized viewing experience. Combined with the ability to create quick links to favorite content and channels, MobiTV subscribers now have more control over when and how they consume mobile media.
