Mumbai: Telecom services provider Tata Teleservices on 18 June said it will launch Internet radio in its mobile handsets.
There would be 41 radio channels, including BBC, Bloomberg, CNN and different genres of music in the handsets provided by the CDMA major, which operates its services under the brand name Tata Indicom.
Subscribers would be charged Rs50 for a month’s subscription, Tata Teleservices President (Value-Added Services) Pankaj Sethi said at a press meet here.
Initially, the new service would be available in handsets of Rs 8,000.
“In three months, the facility would be available even in Rs 3,000 handsets,” Sethi said.
The Internet radio application has been developed by US-based Locate-it Info Inc, which will share the revenues with Tata Teleservices, he said.
He, however, did not give details of revenue sharing pattern.
The company would provide services of radio stations which have free subscription on the Internet.
