Direct to home service provider Tata Sky has launched Tata Sky Mobile Access for the Android platform. In July, the company had launched this application only for Apple devices.
Speaking on the launch, Vikram Mehra, chief marketing officer, Tata Sky, tells afaqs! that it is a unique offering, and that no other DTH service provider has such a facility in place for users. "Android is an open source platform, and this app is compatible across the hardware."
The app functions on Android 2.2 or higher variations, and is available for free for HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, Nexus S, and Galaxy Tab. The Universal Remote functionality works on all Android 2.2 devices -- in conjunction with the MP3 Mobile Accessory.
"More and more people are buying smartphones today. When we asked our consumers what they do on their smartphones, the most common answers that we got were updating statuses on Facebook or Tweeting, finding movie promos on YouTube, and reading reviews on Wikipedia. We wanted all this to converge into one app," he adds.
