Notes to Editors :
Motive Television provides digital television technology and services globally, enabling Television Anytime Anywhere. The market is driven by heightened consumer demand coupled with the mandatory switchover from analogue to digital broadcasting which, as mandated by the International Telecommunication Union, will come into full effect by 2015.
Motive Television provides broadcasters with new sources of income and business models and currently operates via three subsidiaries:
• Television Anytime is a technology that permits and enables digital terrestrial broadcasters to offer enhanced broadcasting services without the need for the Internet. Broadcasters can earn additional income through these services, including Catch-Up TV, Virtual Channels, Video-on-Demand and Targeted Advertising. Television Anytime is currently in commercial operation in Italy and successful tests have been carried out in the Czech Republic and Hungary.
• Television Anywhere is an advanced place-changing television technology that allows a viewer to interact, control and watch their Internet-connected home television from a computer, mobile phone, iPad or any other Internet connected device. Television Anywhere is software orientated, doesn’t require an additional box, and can be updated via software upgrades. US patent pending.
• Motive Television Limited, a Dublin-based award-winning independent production company that produces factual programmes for Irish broadcasters. It specializes in live sports production and sports documentaries and also produces factual and entertainment series.
Motive Television was founded in London in 2005 and its shares are quoted on the London Stock Exchange (AIM).
