Subscribers will be able to catch the latest entertainment news, drama series and special mobisodes from the top studios of Bollywood while on the move.
 
The JV also has jumped feet first into the fast-growing Chinese market, signing an exclusive deal with Potevio, a Chinese Government owned entity that gives the company the right to provide IPTV to China's 500 million mobile subscribers though China Mobile and China Unicom.
