iOS and Android-compatible devices will allow smartphones to pickup Freeview TV
Activ8 has signed an exclusive deal with digital TV receiver manufacturer iCube to distribute its Tivizen range, which allows mobile devices to pick up a signal without needing to use Wi-Fi or mobile data.
Tivizen devices will be compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS6 and Android devices and work both in the UK and abroad, where it will give access to local digital TV stations.
Activ8 will have the sole distribution rights in both the UK and Ireland and will be marketing the products as ideal for holidaymakers – especially in the motorhome market.
Activ8 managing director Stuart Conroy said: “Our customers are demanding access to mobile digital TV away from the home without impacting data allowance and Tivizen’s pioneering products provide the perfect solution.
“We’ve already seen considerable interest in the caravan and motorhome market and given the flexibility this provides to watch digital TV anywhere there are more avenues to explore. We’re looking forward to this joint venture and the roll out of the entire range.”
