SentabTV Aims to Connect the Generation that Technology ‘Forgot’

71acjeag91l-_sl1500_On Tuesday, MMW connected with the team behind the launch of Sentab, a unique platform that lets users connect in real time with their friends and loved ones.

This week, the company is releasing its SentabTV digital media player.

The launch comes just in time for the holidays, on the heels of the company’s newly-available iOS and Android apps and web program.

SentabTV seeks to enable unlimited cross-device connectivity, and remove the technological barriers that prevent senior citizens from enjoying the social aspects of the Internet.

“The desire to help people all over the world connect, capture and share their precious moments with loved ones is what led us to develop SentabTV,” said Tarmo Pihl, Founder and CEO of Sentab. “By blending the simplicity of the TV platform with the immediacy of live-recorded video via mobile devices and computers, SentabTV will help make the user experience more authentic.”

According the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people ages 65 and older will reach 82.3 million by 2040. “SentabTV can provide key benefits to this growing, often overlooked population. The easy-to-use, integrated platform will help them combat loneliness, communicate more effectively with family members and care providers within senior living communities – all via their TV,” the company’s announcement reads.

The subscription-based SentabTV set top box costs $149.00 and is available for purchase on Amazon.
