BSNL launches Mobile TV, but only for select Nokia handsets

Here comes Mobile TV to India.. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), the public sector telecom company of India has announced the launch of its "TV in mobile handset" service, but not in the whole of India but only across the eastern and north-eastern regions of the country.

This service presently allows the GSM users to view 12 television channels namely the NDTV, CNBC, Aajtak, Times Now, Zoom, Bindaas, ETV, and TV9 on their handsets at present. This will be expanded to 32 channels by the end of this year.

BSNL has partnered with Apalya Technologies Pvt Ltd to provide content in the form of TV signals that will be available on the BSNL GSM handsets.

A cool new step by BSNL, but not a complete step though. This service is initially available on select Nokia handsets only and not for any other companies' handset. But this step with will be completed soon by extending this service to Sony Ericsson and Motorola handsets as well.

To access this service, customers need to call the customer care i.e. 94000-24365. Customers can visit on their mobile phones to view the TV content, which will be free for the next 30 days.

The charges to be charged after these 30 days have not yet been declared though.
