Motive Television and Granite Broadcasting Corporation’s joint venture, Tablet TV, will start to take US pre-orders for its TabletTV Plus app in the US on November 12.
The mobile TV app will initially be available for iOS tablets only, but is still pending final completed review and approval by the Apple App Store.
The app lets viewers watch broadcast and internet TV channels and access a mobile PVR for time-shifted viewing, via a compatible TPod television tuner. The app includes Apple TV Airplay and Google Chromecast support and lets users simultaneously surf the web while watching TV.
Tablet TV said that the US launch of TabletTV Plus will be followed in a short time by the availability of the new platform in the UK.
