Founded in 2013, TotalCast is a TV Everywhere solution delivering live local channels to cell phones and tablets. TotalCast’s patented geofencing technology ensures local affiliate streams stay within each local TV market, respecting content distribution agreements and allowing additive TV monetization.
TotalCast was developed by Capitol Broadcasting Company, Inc. in 2007 to help it manage Internet content distribution rights for its television and radio stations.
Why is it important?
With TotalCast, content is only delivered over a computer network if the recipient’s computer or device requesting the content is verified to be located in the geographically restricted area.
TotalCast allows broadcasters, MVPD’s, content producers, and radio stations to simulcast live broadcast content to mobile devices while respecting distribution rights.
