Experiences were made on WeTek Play and then the firmware was developed on the WeTek hardware. They are also sharing the source code and instructions for flashing the Outernet Lighthouse image onto WeTek Play and WeTek OpenELEC. Since Outernet is a broadcast data service that is transmitted over DVB-S/2 transponders, any device should have a tuner module.
Outernet is currently transmitting over 30,000 ebooks across 6 different satellites. The service is accessible virtually anywhere in the world.
