MUMBAI: BSkyB, the UK?s leading provider of pay-TV services, has launched its Sky+ remote record service using weComm?s wave platform. It enables customers to maximise the value of their content by providing sophisticated, personalised services for mobile devices.

Sky customers will be able to set their Sky+ to record their favourite shows using a mobile phone - either by sending a text message or with Sky by mobile. If they have downloaded the Sky by mobile application they can view Sky?s seven-day TV guide on their phone and select programmes to record. The guide they see on their phone looks similar to Sky?s light blue on-screen guide and enables people to browse listings and view programme details on the move.

Sky by mobile is available on a large range of handsets, including Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and the RIM Blackberry, according to an official release.

weComm COO Oliver Sturrock commented: ?This is the first time that TV viewers will be able to remotely record their favourite programmes using a mobile phone from anywhere in the world.

?We started working with Sky two years ago. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our technology to adapt to theirs and, ultimately, their subscribers? needs. The launch of the Remote Record for Sky+ is a good example of how our collaboration with Sky is meeting those needs.

?Our technology has proven to be very reliable for building applications designed for the mass market and we are now seeing tremendous demand, particularly from the media industry.?

This is the third phase of weComm?s collaboration with Sky. The first generation of Sky by mobile was launched in June 2005 and provided the latest news stories and videos from Sky Sports and Sky News, up to the minute sports events scores and personalised services to users. It also allows viewers to place bets on sporting events through their Skybet account.

In January 2006, weComm developed the second phase of the technology allowing viewers to subscribe to and watch Sky TV channels live on their handsets ? Sky Mobile TV.
