The FLO TV service is live mobile TV with the capacity for up to 20 channels. The hardware solution is universal and works with the Audiovox supplied OE headrest DVD and Seat Top solutions. In addition the hardware solution can integrate with factory rear seat entertainment system.
Audiovox will supply the hardware for the FLO TV(TM) Auto Entertainment system that integrates with the vehicles’ existing entertainment systems and Mopar 7-inch DVD screen systems.
A small antenna, similar in size to a laptop mouse, is mounted on a vehicle’s roof to deliver the digital TV signal. The receiver and wiring are installed under the interior trim of the vehicle and are not visible to occupants. User-friendly wired and wireless remote controls allow viewers to easily surf channels, similar to TV systems at home.
