ROK Global PLC, the mobile applications and web technologies company, has today announced ROK TV, its streamed Mobile TV service available to UK residents on BlackBerry App World™, has now been downloaded by more than 100,000 people in the UK.

Commenting, Jonathan Kendrick,  Chairman and CEO of ROK said “To have exceeded 100,000 downloads of ROK TV in the UK in such a short period of time is a great achievement and proves our case that Mobile TV containing quality TV channels, streamed live over mass-market 2.5G as well as 3G and Wi-Fi, is a compelling service for Content Owners and Mobile Operators to offer their customers on a subscription basis.”

The ROK TV service delivers BBC One, BBC Two, BBC  Three, CBBC and ROK Tube channels and is available to UK residents free of  charge on BlackBerry App World™.

“We are using this success to demonstrate to several major content owners, around the world, the viability of white-label versions of ROK TV which has already lead to 2 new contracts being agreed and we will announce details of these and other agreements for ROK-powered Mobile TV service deployments in due course.” Added Kendrick.
