OBN, Inc: Presents G2i TV – a turn key vSTB Cloud Based Solution for Satellite

iCrowdNewswire - May 15, 2015




As the evolution to Internet TV continues to expand, Pay TV Service Providers throughout the world need additional features for their viewers.

The G2i TV concept represents the new generation of interactive digital broadcast that provides new innovations through the introduction of new apps that will enhance existing Streaming TV, both live and on-demand services by allowing access to many features not currently available.


Product/Service Details

The company has developed a unique proprietary digital platform that allows consumers to connect with content, merchandisers and people everywhere, anytime on whatever viewing device they choose simultaneously. There are plenty of products on the market that can provide content, social networking and merchandising services independently but OBN, Inc. can deliver all enhanced digital services through one platform.

Current success status: OBN, Inc. has an established international distribution partner, SinTel Satellite Services, Inc. that will deploy the platform and application in over 138 countries internationally through a network of TV providers utilizing their satellite services and established infrastructure.

OBN will use distribution channels that are already well established in the market place. Cable, Satellite and Internet providers can white label OBN’s products and services to enhance their existing consumer products

The company has a patent on their unique platform and application which includes a system, method and apparatus. Multiple revenue streams will be established through product licensing opportunities


Traction & Accomplishments

1. OBN is engaged with a Global Direct To Home Satellite, WiFi, VSAT and Telcom Service Provider to install G2i TV into their customer’s existing networks for content delivery worldwide for viewers to watch, listen and play on one “Shared Network“.

2. Working with a National TV News Broadcaster to produce a proof of concept and prototype product for duplication and delivery worldwide in local markets. The G2i TV Everywhere/Second Screen functionality will be featured that provides in stream purchasing and contribution capibilities evaluated for immediate deployment. (end 2014)

3. OBN has partnered with a Global Eletronic Program Guide (EPG ) Data Systems Operator to engage the audience for on-demand purchasing during live stream broadcasts.

4.  Partnered with a global closed internet service provider to enable PayTV Service Providers the ability to provide their subscribers additional features on television, PC, tablets and phones at a low cost.




How We’re Different

Currently, the Pay TV Service Providers have at most a limited ability to provide a fully scalable content delivery platform for unlimited membership for Broadcasters, Merchants and End Users within the USA and around the world.  As a result of this limitation, cable TV and other internet providers are losing subscribers to the likes of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Roku etc.

Thus, OBN, Inc. has created a TV/Radio Everywhere Companion Tool for the “End User” or “Audience” to access One Universal Common Social Broadcast Network for mass media consumption on demand at a low cost.

OBN has the unique ability to reach and engage millions of current subscriber’s globally at one time due to working in partnership with established telecoms, Satellite, Wireless, Fiber and VSAT Networks worldwide drives sales and solutions.

The new OBN G2iTV concept represents an opportunity for Pay TV Service Providers to consolidate publishing and entertainment onto one scalable platform. The use of the OBN G2iTV concept will allow Pay TV Service Providers the opportunity to expand the scope of their services which will both result in more effective advertising for their clients and new revenue streams based on demand purchasing from interactive viewers.

Also, it will give the Pay TV Service Providers additional capabilities, including the ability to support a large number of niche channels, easier use of video on demand service, an online internet shopping experience and allowing users to establish and use social networks.
