Solution for TV Everywhere Controversy

LONDON--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) -


Press release

Motive Television Announces Solution for TV Everywhere Controversy
"Motive's Television Anywhere (US Patent Pending) is among the biggest
changes in watching TV since the invention of time-shifting."

London: April 19, 2011 -- Motive Television plc announced today that
its proprietary (US Patent Pending) Television Anywhere technology is a
solution to the problem of content rights issues regarding TV
Everywhere offers by cable and satellite pay television providers.
Motive's technology, developed over the past five years in Europe,
provides an innovative and flexible approach to the issue of easy
distribution of television content to all screens within the home at
the direction of the consumer.

Leonard M. Fertig, CEO of Motive, said "Motive's Television Anywhere
technology puts the capability of accessing TV on any screen in the
hands of the consumer rather than having cable or satellite operators
distributing additional feeds of channels and programs in multiple
formats and technologies. By placing our proprietary software into the
cable or satellite Set-Top-Box, the cable or DTH provider continues to
provide the same service as always, however, the consumer is able to
connect to his television source from authenticated registered screens
and devices in the home.

Viewers can watch not only any live programming available on their main
TV, but programs recorded on their PVR as well. The user experience on
any screen is the same as watching the main television and can be
consistent across all devices.

Additionally, Motive's Television Anywhere software platform provides
the capability of sideloading (virtual DVD's) and the ability to use
any screen as a remote control. The programming enters the home via
cable or DTH and the provider/operator can control which, if any,
programs are not permitted to be multi-screen. We feel that our
Television Anywhere solution has the same characteristics as the
ability of viewers to time shift programs for their own personal use in
their home."
