Du launches mobile TV app

UAE-based fixed-line operator Du has launched a new mobile TV app, Du View, on the Xbox One platform. 

The Du View app, which will enable viewers to watch content on smart TV, iOS and Android devices as well as Xbox game consoles, will initially allow Du TV viewers to watch their subscription packages on multiple devices, with on-demand content to be made available later.

Du View Anywhere allows existing home service subscribers to watch content on the Xbox One, with an interactive programming guide showing the current programs and the programming for up to seven days.The app is also Kinect-enabled.

“We’re excited to bring this revolutionary app to our customers, putting them ahead of fellow gamers in the region with an innovative View Anywhere technology. The additional convenience of the du View Anywhere app’s Kinect compatibility emphasises on the simplicity that technology brings to our communications; interaction is, today, as simple as gesturing at your screen,” said Fahad Al Hassawi, chief commercial officer, Du.

“By giving our customers the option to view their du TV subscription on devices other than their television, we are facilitating the UAE’s smart city progression, in which we will see increased screen convergence as content becomes viewable as, where, and how our customers want it. This is all part of our commitment to our customers, to bring them the innovations and technology that adds life to their life in the most unexpected ways.”

The Du View service, which was designed by TV App Agency, was unveiled at the GITEX Technology Week event.
