Motive Television’s new maritime platform, BYOD (bring your own device), is currently being tested with two ferry lines servicing Greece and Italy and is expected to launch commercially in early April 2015. 

The company is also in discussions with cruise operators in North America to launch the services during the upcoming summer season.

The new joint platform (made together with Twin Peak’s VoDo technology) provides VOD movies and TV programmes for the rapidly growing demand for BYOD service on commercial ships, private yachts, oil rigs, ferries, and cruise ships worldwide.

“Launching our first BYOD service commercially seven months after undertaking the development of this new product is quite an achievement,” comments Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive. “The international ferry market, is huge, and BYOD should find great acceptance among passengers on 3-10 hour journeys throughout Europe and the Americas.  Added to that, the growing cruise market represents significant growth opportunity for Motive.”
