Unify ENTERTAIN In-Cell Media Centre

In-cell entertainment is there to reduce stress and boredom when prisoners are locked away in their cell. It is apparent that regular TV’s can be ‘modified’ using items that can be found around the prison and in turn lead to problems elsewhere as well as unauthorised channels being accessed. With the In-Cell Media Centre, live entertainment is accessed via IPTV, which does not need a TV aerial to work, which stops the ability to tamper with.
