MobiTV’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Fox Rothschild LLP advised the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors on the deal.

Founded in 2000, MobiTV is the first company to bring live and on-demand television to mobile devices and is a leader in application-based television and video delivery solutions.  MobiTV asserts in its filings that despite growing revenue and increasing subscriber and customer bases, it incurred substantial operating losses in 2020 and its growth was materially impaired by COVID-19 and related stay-at-home orders.

MobiTV filed a voluntary petition on March 1, 2021 with a commitment for a $15.5 million debtor-in-possession financing facility from an affiliate of T-Mobile USA, Inc., one of MobiTV’s key customers.  MobiTV is pursuing a going concern sale of its business pursuant to bidding procedures approved by the Bankruptcy Court on April 7, 2021.
