Large European operator Tele2, with more than 34 million customers in 10 countries, has announced that their newly released service, Tele2 TV, will be coming to Windows Phone soon.
Tele2 TV lets Tele2 subscribers watch more than 60 Russian and international streaming TV channels for 7 rubles (0.10 euro) per day without incurring any data charges, and works over their own network on 3G or 4G or WIFI elsewhere.
The service comes with some other nifty features, including Picture in Picture mode and the ability to add reminders to your calendar directly for your favourite programs.
Roman Volodin, Chief Commercial Officer at Tele2, said “The 3G launch opened new opportunities for Tele2 subscribers in content services that require high-speed data transport. Now we are happy to offer a convenient and up-to-date mobile application that allows our clients to have a TV set by them and watch favorite TV programs where they want to. We have major plans to develop services based at wireless Internet and to launch a music service in the nearest future. I hope that Tele2 clients will like our new products especially with the prices as reasonable as always.”
The app was developed by SPB software, a long time mobile development house who cut their teeth on Windows Mobile development some time ago. Unfortunately no specific delivery date was announced.
