LAS VEGAS, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Tablet Television LLC
[], America's first broadcast TV service for tablets,
announced today during a press conference at the 2014 NAB Show briefing room
#N242 that Tablet TV is available for live demo at the 2014 NAB Show taking
place April 7-10^th at the Las Vegas Convention Center Booth N2439 in the

Tablet TV LLC, a joint venture of Motive Television plc and Granite
Broadcasting Corporation, truly puts television a touch away for portable
devices with no subscription fee, cable, satellite or Internet required.
Utilizing existing ATSC distribution viewers will be able to receive direct,
free over-the-air television transmissions to their portable devices. This
first broadcast TV service for tablets will enable viewers to watch and record
live broadcast content in high definition in every market in the U.S. and, in
association with local broadcasting partners, will be able to provide
on-demand packages. Additional features such as fully-integrated social
television will be available to Internet connected viewers.

Tablet TV will conduct its first full market beta test this summer in San
Francisco. The beta test will be conducted in partnership with Granite's
KOFY-TV. Leading up to the San Francisco launch, Tablet TV expects to work
with Frank N. Magid Associates, Inc. to fine tune its feature and service
offering, as well as its consumer marketing efforts. Tablet TV expects to
commence commercial operations in fall 2014.

Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive commented, "We are extremely pleased with the
successful testing of the commercial design, which utilizes Motive's proven
technology in use in markets around the globe, and the continued progress
toward the launch of Tablet TV. Tablets are the fastest growing media device
in U.S. history and the ability to directly watch and record over-the-air HD
television and receive VoD with no broadband connection creates a compelling
proposition for anytime, anywhere, any device viewing."

Granite Chairman Peter Markham commented, "Tablet TV is a unique service that
we envision making available to every viewer in the U.S. with a tablet and
access to a local television station signal where the most popular programs on
free Over the-Air (OTA) television are found. It is a broadcaster friendly
offering that requires no capital investment and enhances local broadcaster's
business models by extending their brand and content, leveraging their
existing digital distribution network, and creating new revenue opportunities.
With a compelling offering for viewers and broadcasters, we look forward to
our beta launch in San Francisco later this year, a technology savvy market
that we believe will be very receptive to Tablet TV."

Tablet TV will be the first complete television service for the U.S. market of
140 million tablet users using the current over the air high definition (HD)
ATSC broadcast television signals that will provide access to current HD
broadcast television prime time TV and sports, plus on-demand movies and
programs. The new television service will be marketed in cooperation with
participating broadcasters in each market as it rolls out across the United
States, starting with the television markets that Granite Television serves.

With patented and proprietary technology, tablet owners in every market will
be able to watch and record all the programming currently broadcast over all
the digital terrestrial channels and networks. Additionally, Tablet TV
subscribers will be able to download a selection of video-on-demand movies and
programs without the need for Internet access and, when they are connected,
