WIT Software announces Live TV application for iPhone
Coimbra, April 13th 2009: WIT Software unveils iPhone “Live TV” application. It is now possible for Vodafone Portugal iPhone 3G users to watch real time TV. This is one of the first iPhone Live TV applications in the world to be launched commercially in a mobile operator. It was developed by WIT-Software, in close cooperation with Vodafone Portugal,
the first Operator to enable this service on its network.
What makes this application unique, according to Luis Silva, WIT Software CEO, is “the use of mobile standards, commonly used by mobile operators, and the ability to use 3G. With this application, mobile operators do not have to change anything on their network and subscribers can use the service anywhere in the country, as long as they have 3G coverage”.
This application is available for free on the Portuguese AppStore as “Vodafone Mobile TV” and it can be used by any Vodafone Portugal customer. The application is now available for licensing for other mobile operators willing to extend its Mobile TV offering to iPhone 3G subscribers.
Yet another unique feature is “the support for Fast Channel Switching, where the user can do zapping of TV channels in an easy way. This feature brings the Mobile TV experience on the iPhone even closer to the traditional TV set” according to Luis Silva.
WIT Software has developed a competence center for iPhone Application Development, and in a short period this is the third application certified by Apple. The iPhone MMS Client and the Mobile ATM application are also available on the AppStore, also for Vodafone Portugal iPhone 3G customers.
