Inuk, the student focussed IPTV operator, has been sold to Move Networks for an undisclosed fee.
In a statement, Move Networks said the combination of Inuk’s IPTV platform and its virtual set-top box technology would be able to offer viewers an internet television experience with no skipping or buffering.
“Inuk’s IPTV platform is well positioned to deliver these new consumer expectations and Move Networks proprietary adaptive streaming and video publishing platform delivers an HD viewing experience via the current Internet infrastructure today,” said John Edwards, executive chairman of the board at Move Networks. “This means Move Networks and Inuk have the critical components in place to support commercial deployments.
Inuk offers its Freewire-branded platform Freewire to universities in the UK, Ireland and Canada. It has plans to launch in the United States and the Nordic region later this year.
