Motive Television eyes autumn launch for Tablet TV

Motive Television (LON:MTV) has revealed that Tablet Television, its joint venture with Granite Broadcasting, expects to launch commercial operations this autumn.

That will follow its first full market beta test in the summer in San Francisco.

Tablet TV, which will allow users to watch TV on a tablet without an internet connection, expects to work with Frank N. Magid Associates to fine-tune its feature and service offering, as well as its consumer marketing efforts.

Recent research from GFK revealed that 33% of Americans own a tablet and watch at least an hour of video a day on their devices.

Chief executive Leonard M Fertig said: “We are extremely pleased with the successful testing of the commercial design, which utilizes Motive's proven technology in use in markets around the globe, and the continued progress toward the launch of Tablet TV. 

“Tablets are the fastest growing media device in US history and the ability to directly watch and record over-the-air HD television and receive VoD with no broadband connection creates a compelling proposition for anytime, anywhere, any device viewing.”

Motive’s shares jumped 12% to 0.025p.
