Zee’s DTH broadcaster Dish TV has successfully tested what it describes as Mobile MDU (Multi-Dwelling Unit) which will boost passengers’ TV choice when travelling on cross-country buses, trains and ferry routes.
The basic TV system – when in place - forces all passengers to watch the same single channel. Dish TV demonstrated the system on a luxury cruiser plying between Bombay and Goa last month, and which offered a 100-channel choice for passengers. Dish TV is now talking to bus operators and India’s national railway operator.
"This marks a major achievement as the signals on a moving vehicle are much weaker and the sea ride is even more turbulent. The team has been working very diligently and has finally achieved the success. This reinforces Dish TV promise of providing wholesome entertainment to people in all spheres of their lives," Dish TV Managing Director Jawahar Goel said.
