satellite radio and datacasting


Othernet delivers a multi-media broadcast to small, portable receivers. By uniting a globally-scalable satellite broadcast with easily-accessible technologies and rich, digital media, Othernet brings about a new communication platform accessible to all.

Accessible, portable receivers

Thousands of consumers access Othernet's technology through our receivers. Our model is to deliver more value in a portable design at low-cost with a scalable content delivery system. 

Othernet's receivers acquire content through our broadcast network, which can be accessed by any computing device from the receiver through a local Wi-Fi hotspot created by the receiver. Othernet's free channel requires no recurring fees or account registration and our newest antennas are as small as a quarter.

Rich Content

Othernet's solution marries the reach of broadcasting with digital media, transcending the format and time limitations of traditional radio or TV broadcasting.

Othernet broadcasts multi-media material through a scalable satellite network.

Scalable Broadcast Architecture

By leveraging existing geostationary satellite capacity and combining it with novel modulation techniques, we optimize content delivery with cost-efficiency.

  Othernet's architecture is globally-scalable and globally-accessible, with a broadcast of useful and relevant news, information, and education materials. The vision of ubiquitous access is becoming a reality through our cutting-edge platform.


Use cases include radio broadcasting, emergency alerts, and educational content delivery. 


Radio Broadcasting

Like traditional FM radio broadcasting, Othernet delivers audio content directly to Othernet receivers 

Emergency Management and Disaster Relief

During times of disaster - when reliable communication is most important - terrestrial telecommunication systems are prone to fail. When these networks go down, Othernet's broadcast persists.

We provide a secure information channel for first responders while maintaining an open access platform for the general public. 

On-Demand Video 

Video files are downloaded by receivers and saved for later viewing.


Information access is an essential ingredient for socioeconomic development in the 21st century, yet over 40% of the humanity does not have access to the wealth of knowledge found on the internet.

Courseware in many formats (ebooks, videos, apps) can be accessed through Othernet. These educational services are accessible to all - from children learning to read to adults learning to code.

Interactive Weather Data

 Othernet delivers real-time interactive weather maps to even the most remote areas.

File Delivery

Othernet broadcasts a wide array of multi-media content. Anything that is saved on a hard drive can be broadcast through Othernet.

Othernet's mission is to build a universal information service; a truly pervasive multi-media service that operates in the most remote places and functions even when nothing else does.
