Television at sea

Traditionally, broadcasting video via satellite was considered prohibitively expensive and simply clogging communication lines.

In the summer of 2014, two new satellite products came out, which completely changed the picture of how people can have fun on the ship. The first appeared IP-MobileCast service from KVH (since May of this year). Soon after, Flem Media service from Inmarsat appeared. It has not yet entered the market, but will appear as soon as beta testing passes.

Both services will offer a wide range of television programs and films, news and sports broadcasts. All videos will be available from a laptop, tablet, phone or TV installed in the wardroom.

Previously, only DVD libraries were available to sailors – that is, you could only choose from a limited number of films. Even if they were at sea for several months. Now, with the help of Inmarsat or KVH, people on board will be able to watch the latest movies that come out at that time on land. In addition to the latest releases of Hollywood cinema, news and broadcast of the latest matches will allow sailors not to stay away from the events that their relatives and friends are talking about at home.

But perhaps the biggest innovation related to the introduction of new services is that shipping companies will not need to pay for the delivery of this data to the ship. Instead, both KVH and Inmarsat will send digital content separately from the ship’s primary satellite communications. Moreover, both companies claim that they can do it in such a way that the broadcast will not affect the overall operation of the communication system.

Subscribers will pay a monthly fee, which will depend on the amount of content delivered and how often it is updated. Crew members will be able to access this content whenever they want.

The data delivery system is very similar to the one provided on long flights or popular server multimedia systems (for example, Plex). Various types and genres of content will be displayed on the screen, and the user will be able to choose what he wants to see, in which language and whether he needs subtitles.

Nevertheless, although many aspects of the use of these entertainment systems are similar to each other, the ways in which the data will go to the ship differ markedly.

If you evaluate the cost, for example, IP-Mobilecast, which is already promoting its service on the market, then the data will be paid for in packages, starting from $ 295 per month. The cheapest subscription includes 10 films and 10 television shows per month, as well as approximately 60 digital newspapers daily.

Next comes the Premium package, which includes 20 films and 30 television programs, as well as news releases, including CNN, BBC and sports. It will cost $ 1,295 a month.

In addition, special packages were offered, such as FIFA Cup lighting. The package included the highlights of each match, as well as the full final of the World Cup, shown almost immediately after the online broadcast.

In addition, new services open up new opportunities for travel shipping companies. Now tourists can watch news and latest movies directly on the ship, and can also access daily newspapers directly from their laptop or tablet.
