MobiTV hits 6 Million Mark
In 1999 a small group of talented and ambitious entrepreneurs had a vision - Mobile Television. 10 years and 6 million subscribers later this vision has become a reality.
MobiTV was amongst the first services to let you watch TV on your mobile phone and continues to spearhead the mobile television revolution. With an unprecedented ability to anticipate market movement and consumer demands MobiTV offers a user friendly experience as well as an array of premium and broadcast channels.
Since taking over from the MobiTV´s founding CEO Dr. Phillip Alvelda in 2007, Charlie Nooney has taken the company to dizzy heights. Under his stewardship MobiTV has acquired an incredible 6 million subscribers and continues to grow. Speaking at this year´s Mobile World Congress Mr Nooney stated that all that remains is to inform the world that mobile TV has arrived:
“The biggest hurdle to adoption is no longer availability or technology -- it is awareness, and as the market leader we're poised to capitalize on increasing consumer demand for compelling, entertaining TV and video-on-demand for the mobile phone.”
Despite facing some strong competition Mr Nooney took home several top honours from the GSMA Global Mobile Awards in Barcelona earlier this month. The awards recognise MobiTV's outstanding contribution in the field of mobile television technology and more evocatively acknowledged Mr Nooney's company as the market leader in mobile technology.
“At MobiTV we know mainstream adoption of mobile television is dependent on compelling user experiences and content that is relevant to the consumer” said Mr Nooney, he continued “by providing features like immediate session start, fast channel change and a simple user interface, MobiTV is giving users the experience they expect. The GSMA have recognised that in the award we received.”
Not standing still, MobiTV continues to assert authority over the Mobile TV community after recently announcing that its Media Distribution Platform now has the ability to deliver live streaming and on demand video content to the popular iPhone device.
