Don't let the name fool ya -- "WhereverTV" wasn't on any iOS devices until this morning when the Neuros-powered streaming global television service got an App Store launch. It's intended for a wide variety of iOS devices -- the iPhone 3GS through the 5, as well as iPod Touches and iPads running iOS 4.3 or newer -- and offers access to WhereverTV free international TV streaming options, as well as paid options for Greek, Moroccan, and Arabic programming (the app's been available on Android devices for some time now).
Users aren't limited by connection, either, as even 3G signal is supported by the app; of course, we wouldn't suggest you go depending on that option, but it will function should you try. WhereverTV is also promising updates in the future, such as DVR scheduling and playback, as well as more free channels. That is, in addition to the company's ongoing quest to make good on its name.
WhereverTV App Now Available on the App Store
Free App delivers LIVE programming from around the world to iOS devices.
PITTSBURGH, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTC Pink: TVTV), a leader in delivering over-the-top (OTT) subscription television services, today announced the release of the WhereverTV app for iOS devices, now available on the App Store. The App works on any Apple device running iOS 4.3 or greater, including iPad, iPhone 3GS to 5, and iPod Touch.
With the WhereverTV App, subscribers to GreekTV, ArabicTV and 2M Maroc now have the freedom to watch live programming portably on Apple devices, while providing yet another option in delivering content to TV sets through AirPlay (http://www.apple.com/airplay/) and AppleTV (http://www.apple.com/appletv/). The WhereverTV App also features a channel guide that allows users to simultaneously browse and change channels while watching television.
The WhereverTV App can be downloaded for free by visiting: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wherevertv/id602767459?mt=8
Impact of iOS Device Access
"With Apple forecasting sales of 102 million iPads and 194 million iPhones in 2013, it is a necessity to have our service accessible to users of these wildly popular devices," explained Mark Cavicchia , TVTV's CEO. "Apple's App Store has over 500 million active accounts and had a record-breaking 2012 with nearly 20 billion downloads during the year. Our current subscribers will no doubt benefit from this additional outlet to access their content, while WhereverTV's subscription services will appeal to an expanded customer base that is already accustomed to using Apple's ecosystem for accessing video content and other entertainment."
Increasing the ease in delivering over-the-top content to television sets has been the major focus of TVTV's business strategy from its inception. "Streaming channels from WhereverTV's App to TV sets via AirPlay allows subscribers to watch live content on their big screen while browsing and navigating from their handheld devices," continued Mr. Cavicchia. "Technology has caught up to our patent pending Global IPG system to the point where consumers are no longer bound to traditional cable and satellite providers. Much like we are seeing cell phones replace landlines throughout the world, we will soon see a shift in the way people access, manage and view live television content as technology continues to evolve. WhereverTV is well positioned to be in front of that shift."
The Company is already working on future enhancements to its iOS App, which include DVR scheduling and playback capabilities, as well as adding free-to-air internet television channels from around the world.
