MTN launches HDTV

South Florida-based MTN Communications has launched its high-definition live television service at sea, MTN Worldwide TV HD.

“MTN-TV HD delivers an amazing viewing experience onboard,” said Graham Douglas, media and communications manager, P&O Cruises and Cunard. “We can now experience TV at sea like we can at home. As we transformed the technology and ambience in our common areas, theaters and cabins, we evolved from small to large screens, so our requirement for HD became paramount. We are so pleased with the service that we just used it on all our ships to broadcast the naming ceremony for our new build, Britannia.”

This service launch starts with IMG’s Sport 24 Channel in HD. The first-ever 24/7 sports channel designed for the maritime market, its 2015 line-up includes Premier League Soccer, Formula 1, U.S. Open tennis, Wimbledon, the Masters golf tournament, and Bundesliga Soccer.

This new service enhances the broadcast quality of all the other MTN-TV channels, as well. The company has plans for further MTN-TV technology investments, particularly nearing the roll-out of the MTN High-Throughput Multi Spot Beam (MTN HTMS) service next year.

MTN-TV has been in service five years.
