PITTSBURGH, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTC Pink: TVTV), a leader in delivering over the top (OTT) subscription television services to a variety of devices including ConnectedTVs, streaming media players, smartphones and TabletPCs, today announced the upcoming launch of its expanded ArabicTV service offering, which will include more than 25 of the most popular channels from the Middle East.
"Our customers have spoken and we listened very carefully to their content requests," said TVTV's CEO, Mark Cavicchia. "The Arabic speaking population is one of the fastest growing segments in North America, with more than 4 million people living in the USA alone. When you add in the Arabic community of approximately 25 million living in Latin America, you have a representative and influential group of people who are eagerly looking for a stable and reliable in-language television service wherever they are in the world."
Mr. Cavicchia continued, "In addition to offering the most popular channel from Morocco, 2M Maroc, the Company is excited to be adding leading channels from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, and the United Arab Emirates. We will follow this launch with the addition of at least one new Arabic channel every month for the remainder of 2013."
The new ArabicTV service will be available via the Company's WhereverTV application, currently available on GoogleTV and Android Smartphones and TabletPCs, and is expected to be available on Apple devices later this month.
"The fact that more than 1.3 million Android devices are activated every day gives us tremendous reach in to the growing number of Arabic speaking residents throughout the Americas," stated Mr. Cavicchia, who also added, "once our iPhone and iPad applications are available later this month, we will have even greater reach into this important segment of the population through two of the most popular connected device platforms in the world."
