Du launches TV service for mobile devices
| 20 October 2014
A mobile television service, du View, has been launched by UAE telecommunications operator du for subscribers to its IPTV service du TV.
Du View is available for Apple iOS and Android-based smartphones, tablets or laptops.
The second-screen service will be rolled out in two phases, built by CRM Software. The first phase will allow customers to view du TV channels on their connected devices, while the second will provide mobile access to du's On Demand Club.
Du On Demand Club offers hundreds of Hollywood and Arabic TV shows, movies, documentaries, children's entertainment and music videos.
Subscribers with a Samsung Smart TV can also access du View through an application designed by the TV App Agency, with this app being developed to encompass other manufacturers' connected TVs in the future.
The news comes shortly after the telco announced a new du TV app for Microsoft's Xbox One gaming consol.
