This tie-up is another step towards our objective of ‘massification of entertainment’ as this will open new avenues for reaching out to many potential users. With nexGTv expanding its reach, now more and more users can enjoy what we like to call, their ‘personal DTH’. With this tie-up, we plan to increase our subscriber base substantially.”

Elaborating on the partnership Khalid Zamir, Head Product Planning & Development, Videocon Mobile Phones said, “We are glad to partner with DigiVive’s popular mobile TV service - nexGTv for an enhanced user experience on our tablets. VT71 and VT10 are our recent launches in the tablet space, and bring to our users the latest technology at affordable prices. nexGTv is a successful mobile TV service provider and hence it made sense for Videocon to partner with them for this valued added service on our tablet devices.”
