Peace TV taps Vision247 for multiscreen distribution

Hybrid TV technology platform provider Vision247 has launched applications for smart phones and a desktop interface for Peace TV Network, an international Islamic TV channel broadcasting in multiple languages and featuring Islamic orators and scholars.

The service supports live TV, video-on-demand, catch-up TV in English, Urdu, Bangla and Chinese, an EPG and VOD metadata enabling community-generated ratings and recommendations.

Peace TV OTT service is available via iOS and Android smart phone applications as well as a desktop front end. The 24-hour channel is free-to-air and available globally.

Peace TV will broadcast live feeds from Mecca during Ramadan, enabling the channel’s viewers to follow its programmes wherever they are.
