Motive to add Chromecast integration to TabletTV

chromecastMotive Television is set to integrate Google’s Chromecast technology into its TabletTV apps, so that viewers with the device can ‘cast’ what they are viewing onto TV screens. 

The new functionality will become available during the next two months via an update to the TabletTV app, according to Motive. The new functionality will work with the existing TabletTV iPad app, as well as an upcoming app for Android tablets.

Motive launched TabletTV – a digital tuner that is designed to let UK viewers watch Freeview TV from a tablet or mobile device in conjunction with a TabletTV app – for pre-order in December.

“This exciting development is an example of the huge potential of TabletTV to partner with major technology and television platforms to create a better, more flexible, high-value experience for the consumer,” said Motive CEO Leonard Fertig, commenting on the Chromecast launch.

“This is just the first of our anticipated strategic and product cooperation agreements with industry players that will benefit TabletTV customers.”
