MTN Worldwide TV Now Available to All Vessels

Press Release
Tuesday, August 28, 2012

MTN Satellite Communications (MTN) announce MTN Worldwide TV is now available to commercial shipping, ferry, oil & gas and yacht customers.

MTN Worldwide TV is the first fully-digital, multi-channel television service for the maritime industry. Leveraging MTN’s global infrastructure, the service utilizes overlapping satellite beams that integrate seamlessly with a vessel’s existing Television Receive-Only (TVRO) antenna and onboard video distribution system.

MTN ensures viewers at sea receive reliable, uninterrupted service - regardless of location - by managing the satellite network and content. In addition, MTN Worldwide TV is available in all ocean regions and is a great core TV service to supplement any existing programming that might be lost when the vessel is at sea.

MTN Worldwide TV has delivered premium content to the cruise industry for the past four years and currently supports 78 vessels across 20 cruise lines. MTN has built the most comprehensive solution for broadcast television and continually exceeds the needs of customers.

MTN Worldwide TV delivers programming from eight major U.S. and international television networks including BBC World News, CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, Sky News, Sky Sports News, Sport 24 and E! Entertainment Television and has included special event programming such as the Olympics, Premier League Soccer and onboard events like private broadcasts, training, etc.

Brad Briggs, Senior Vice President and General Manager, MTN Commercial Shipping & Energy Services said: “Receiving secured, licensed content aboard a ship or remote platform at sea can be challenging, yet we are able to do this seamlessly, regardless of location, without requiring a vessel to swap out receivers or change service providers.”
