Real-time Digital TV Comes to your Smartphone with Cignal's TV-to-Go Service

TV will never be the same again after Cignal introduced recently its TV-to-Go, an over-the-top (OTT) service.

Cignal subscribers can now watch real-time broadcast feeds from select Cignal channels on their broadband-connected smartphones or tablets - anywhere, any time. Breaking news come to you as it happens. You need not miss your favorite telenovela. Watch a favorite show while caught in traffic. These are just some of the things you can do with real-time TV!

On-demand movies at home were the fashion some time back with Pay Per View. But with OTT technology nowadays, one can watch movies and TV shows on the go via the internet rather than through a dedicated network. So significant is OTT service that Cignal reports that at the recently concluded BroadcastAsia 2013 Conference in Singapore last June 2013, several experts in the field of communications are foreseeing OTT as a worldwide trend in multimedia viewing.

On hand at the launch were top executives of PLDT, Smart and Cignal including M. V. Pangilinan.

For its initial salvo, Cignal brings 13 premium channels to smartphones and tablets, including international feeds from CNN and the Food Channel as well as local feeds like Aksyon TV.
