Romania has become the first country in the Orange group to introduce the Orange TV stick, a mini device that connects TVs to smartphones or tablets.

It allows viewers to watch films, series, shows and TV channels on the big screen, using the mobile device as a remote.

The Orange TV stick can be used by subscribers to the Orange TV DTH service, as well as those watching Orange TV on mobile devices.

It is portable and can be employed anywhere in Romania.

The device is being trialed by 100 customers before being launched commercially.

Orange previously tested its TV service with customers ahead of its debut in 2012.

Orange TV ended last year with 157,000 subscribers in Romania.

The Orange TV Go app, which gives viewers access to 78 TV channels, has already been downloaded over 1.1 million times.
