Wahltv Proposed Software Prototype

Wahltv is for Everyone

Wahltv's finished software will allow people to watch Live TV worldwide on all electronic devices through the internet. No longer will live content be restricted geographically. Instead of using traditional satellite in space and other equipment to bring live content to peoples' homes; Wahltv's finished state-of-the-art software and hardware will accomplish the same with a fraction of the cost by using the power of the internet.

 Why people need Wahltv    

Over the past 50 years, the price of cable has incrementally increased significantly while premium contents have gone down drastically. For the last 35 years satellite have done the same. People now are paying way more for less. Currently, the live content industry is a natural monopoly. Due to the live content distribution requirements, only a few competitors can exist in most cable market. Often there is only one option that consumers can choose. 

Furthermore, when people relocate whether it be to another country or continent chances are their service providers cannot provide service. Consequently, people will have to enter into a new agreements.

How does Wahltv work?

WahlTV proprietary software and servers receive live signal from broadcasters and content owners. Our system will then break it down, clean it, convert it to RTMP stream, M3u8 stream, RTSP Stream, and HLS stream, amplify the signal and send that live signal to our receiver through the Internet. In turn making live content available on any viewing screen in Ultra HD. All you need is high speed Internet and our receiver.

Wahltv vs. Kodi & other devices

Wahltv is a simplified version of Kodi, Apple tv, mixed with Comcast or DIRECTV. Like a typical media center platform, Wahltv is broadcast over the internet but it also offers the simplicity of traditional cable and satellite service providers using the world easies user interface. Wahltv is best described as a mixture of cable bundle which includes TV, phone and internet with the convenience of Sony vue, Apple TV, Sling tv or Amazon fire. There are some great and really interesting media center soft wares out there; however each one of them is restricted in some particular way. Wahltv’s system successfully integrates all of their strengths yet compensated for their weaknesses.

For example Kodi is an open source platform developers and programmers use to add plug-ins. Although it is a free product and users can receive live content on it; the quality of the content is usually poor and unreliable, because Kodi does not have distribution rights to their content, their system is then secondary to Wahltv which provide live contents, Phone Service and a functioning computer for a very low monthly subscription fee. Furthermore, Kodi user interface is quit complex for the typical cable/satellite subscribers.

Secondarily, similar to kodi, Roku, Apple TV and other android boxes out there, there are thousands of Wahltv add-ons and plug-ins available on Google play store to further enhance our user experience. That includes accessing media streaming services like Kodi, YouTube, Hulu, Netflix and more. The main difference is that our state-of-the-art proprietary software categorizes and organizes all plug-ins/application under a submenu called “Application”. This means you can download thousands and thousands of applications yet your main menu will only have four icons. Which are “Live TV”, which includes but not limited to connecting to users own ota (over the air) which gives users their local channels, keeping the viewers up to date with current local news and entertainment, cable channels, and international channel live; then “Application” is where users can download plug-ins/applications etc.; then “Phone” is where you make and receive phone calls including texting,

Lastly at “Setting” is where users would connect their devices to the internet and receives updates. Wahltv is a service that combines Live TV, media centers like Kodi, Hulu, Netflix and thousands of other applications/plug-ins, phone service, and a computer in a easy format for everyone to use.

Working Prototype

Each hardware will be equipped with a ATSC tuner which will allow people to pick up their local channels within a 50 mile radius. Accompanied with this hardware would be a wireless waterproff keyboard and mouse.

Comparison    

Other live tv service systems including software that previously existed are too constrain and unreliable during bad weather. People cannot take their cable or satellite service to a different country. Wahltv is completly different, all you have to do is enter the wifi information on your system and resume where you left off all under 5 minutes. Because our signal is broadcast over the internet, no natural or unnatural disasters can disrupt the signal as long as a person is connected to the internet.

Wahltv software provide the convenience of Live TV worldwide, phone, and computer over the internet.

 Your Backing = Earlier Delivery      

Currently, we are negotiating content rights with many of the leading content providers and creators and hope to finalize the negotiation by November 2015. We have been working with manufacturers in America to design and built our receivers. We currently have a working prototype and are ready for production. However, we really need your support to get the premium content rights and ramp up assembly to get the receivers to you as early as possible.

By backing us now you’ll help us reach our last crucial milestone: finalizing the rights to the content and manufacture much needed receivers. Doing so will give millions of people the opportunity to choose a full entertainment system which includes but not limited to; TV, Phone, Computer, Applications, etc.

 What's Included with My Reward?    

Besides our eternal gratitude and giving potentially millions of people control over who they want to serve them for their entertainment needs. You will get a username and password to our app and you will receive a small package in the mail which contains the following:  A Wahltv cut the cord t-shirts, receivers, wireless keyboards, wireless mouses, HDMI cord, AV Cord, a small antenna for local channels, power cord and an instructional manual. In less than 5 minutes, you can plug everything in, put in your WiFi password and begin enjoying a complete entertainment system - it’s as quick and as simple as that.

Why We Need You  

It is our passion to give people choices and as far as we've come, we still need additional support to be able to give everyone the option of selecting live entertainment provider anywhere they may live. We need your help to take it further, and make Wahltv a reality.

Risks and challenges

Premium content right costs
The primary challenge Wahltv faces is the premium content rights prices. Our goal from the beginning is to offer a product and service that makes a difference in peoples lives. We want to give people more for half of what the typical competition charges while providing the same amount of premium contents. In addition to providing a fully functioning computer and phone system. We can accomplish this because instead of using traditional satellite in space and other equipment to bring live content to peoples homes; Wahltv state-of-the-art software and hardware will accomplish the same with better quality for the fraction of the cost by using the power of the internet. Still, the cost is high. Hence, we need everyone to support Wahltv So we can negotiate better terms with the content providers.

Receiver Cost
Our receiver is a very sophisticated intuitive piece of technology that receives and processes pretty much anything you throw at it. The working prototype was accomplished by working with multiple manufactures and designers. Needless to say, it is very expensive to produce and we need your backing so we can accomplish our objective.
