BPL Mobile TV

by Thiyagarajan Maruthavanan (Rajan)

BPL is set to launch mobile TV and looking to getting one million users using the service in six months. What are they smoking ??!!! Either the HT reporter has massaged the message a little more than what is necessary or the executive quoted has no idea of what he is talking about.Nokia Widsets which I think is one of the finest example of extremely fast adoption of a mobile data service/app  took a little more than a 6 months to reach 1 million user base in a global market. If only BPL can achieve what they claim  then they can be gauranteed a place in the Indian Limca Book Of Records.

With more of such announcements on mobile TV happening in India since last year and everytime each of these announcement claiming it’s a first in India I am just totally confused on what mobile TV really is. ( IMO a unicast certainly can’t be called TV)
