Tele2, a pan European mobile operator with over 34 million customer in 10 countries, has launched a new Over-the-Top (OTT) video service for mobile devices in Russia, allowing subscribers to watch favorite TV programs and movies on their smartphones and tablets without paying extra for the mobile data charges in areas with 3G/4G coverage. The OTT TV service, code named Tele2 TV is priced at 7 rubles per day and available via a downloadable Android app.

Tele2 mobile subcribers need to use Tele2 network to first activate the service, after which no subsequent authorization is required. The OTT TV services come with ease of use features such as in-built search, enabling Tele2 subscribers to easily find a wanted channel or program and calendering for setting reminders for favorite movies. In addition, the OTT TV app also supports “Picture in picture” mode, allowing clients to check what other channels have on air while they are watching their shows. Tele2 said that they will release similar app for iOS and Windows Phone soon. 

Roman Volodin, Chief Commercial Officer at Tele2
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.
