The first ship to deploy the Wave television platform will be Oceania Cruises' Insignia. The line's Nautica and Regatta are scheduled to receive the service later this year.
Wave Entertainment Network delivers an interactive, multi-channel at-sea television platform, available in all ocean regions around the world. The company says that the content, both linear and 'on-demand', is provided with a high quality digital picture via its satellite delivered IPTV system.
The Wave Entertainment platform uses a combination of satellite technology - delivered by SeaMobile's Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN) - and special caching technology that allows viewers to experience live events and network programming in time slots they are accustomed to seeing.
The store-and-forward feature of the service ensures that travellers at sea won't miss their favourite programmes.
"For over a year now we have utilised SeaMobile's premier communications solutions for our guests," said Oceania Cruises' president Bob Binder.
"As an innovator and leader in the cruise line industry, we have again placed our trust in SeaMobile to deliver a television product that not only enhances our guests' experience, but makes them feel right at home."
