ROK TV On BlackBerry Tops 100,000 Download

The increasingly popular ROK TV app has now been downloaded by more than 100,000 people in the UK, according to the mobile applications and web technologies company ROK Global PLC.

ROK TV is a streamed Mobile TV service available to UK residents on BlackBerry App World™.

The app uses the power of their own Media player to allow the user to watch channels such as BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, CBBC and ROK Tube channels.

Available to UK residents free of charge, ROK TV works by transmitting the television signal via GPRS straight to the phone.

Differing from other Mobile Television Services, ROK TV works on a normal 2.5G signal, which is the standard signal that nearly all mobile devices use.
One of the most unique features of the service is that it is not dependant on any particular Network Provider.

This unique feature means that you can be on T-Mobile, O2, Vodafone or Orange and still receive a television signal.Growing fast
The company has pioneered many new technologies in the constantly-evolving mobile and web space, including mobile security technologies.

It licenses to law enforcement agencies, as well as multi-language text-to-speech technologies.

Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman and CEO of ROK said “To have exceeded 100,000 downloads of ROK TV in the UK in such a short period of time is a great achievement and proves our case that Mobile TV containing quality TV channels, streamed live over mass-market 2.5G as well as 3G and Wi-Fi, is a compelling service for Content Owners and Mobile Operators to offer their customers on a subscription basis.”

“We are using this success to demonstrate to several major content owners, around the world, the viability of white-label versions of ROK TV which has already led to 2 new contracts being agreed and we will announce details of these and other agreements for ROK-powered Mobile TV service deployments in due course,” added Kendrick.
