IP-MobileCast Onboard is a Great Catch for F/V Cornelia Marie

Fans of the Discovery Channel show “Deadliest Catch” are familiar with the adventures of the fishing vessel Cornelia Marie, but what kind of fans are the Cornelia Marie’s captains? Big-time soccer fans, it turns out. From Bristol Bay, Alaska, last month, co-captains Josh Harris and Casey McManus spent some off-watch hours catching world championship soccer onboard the Cornelia Marie, thanks to KVH’s IP-MobileCast™ content delivery service.

Seems the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ sure was the Cornelia Marie’s catch of the day: “We’re sitting in the wheelhouse watching World Cup…thanks to KVH and the innovations they’ve come forth with. This is pretty awesome!” says Casey. “Thanks, KVH!” adds Josh.

The IP-MobileCast service utilizes multicasting technology to affordably deliver large multimedia files via KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband service, which provides satellite Internet and phone to thousands of vessels around the world. IP-MobileCast’s SPORTSlink™ channel delivers coverage of major sports events from around the world; the service also provides news, movies, and TV shows. There are plans for electronic chart database updates, e-training, and high-resolution weather data to also be multicast via the service.

So, Josh and Casey, what other sports events would you like to watch from the Cornelia Marie wheelhouse?
