The company said
it will integrate Dolby Digital Plus into its existing DRM-protected content-delivery
platform to spur the delivery of live and on-demand TV programs and other video
content in surround sound across multiple consumer platforms, including cellphones
and tablets as well as PCs and Internet-connected consumer electronics devices
such as TVs.
MobiTV is the exclusive national provider
of cellular-delivered mobile-TV services for the AT&T U-verse Live TV, NFL

company has enabled cellular carriers to offer live-TV and on-demand video services
over cellular, but late last year, MobiTV announced an end-to-end TV Everywhere

MobiTV's TV Everywhere solution include the ability to pause, resume and
transfer live programming between devices, allowing for place-shifting as well
as time shifting. Users can record on any platform and view the recorded
