Tata Sky and Hungama offer Java-based gaming on DTH, for Rs. 40/month
Tata Sky and Hungama Digital Media Entertainment have teamed up again to bringing gaming into your living room, via the television. Calling it a global first, the duo offer “high-end Java-based gaming” that’s developed by Hungama Game Studio, via Tata Sky’s Actve platform. The two first teamed up on Actve Mall. Vikram Mehra, CMO of Tata Sky, said it was all an effort to deliver casual gaming to the 130 million TV homes in India, of which only 10 million own PCs, and 1 million own gaming consoles (and, Tata Sky just hit a subscriber base of 6 million).
Calling it “making Tata Sky more MASS”, the DTH service announced the value-add can be tried free by subscribers for a 15 day trial period before they choose to invest in the Rs. 40/month package. The service was soft-launched a fortnight ago, and Tata Sky claims that they’ve already snagged 35,000 Actve Games subscribers, without any advertising.
As for the platform itself, Tata Sky and Hungama officially launched it with what they call a celebrity/sports game - Yuvraj Singh Cricket Championship, obviously connecting it with one of India’s favourite pastimes. The turnout at the launch event also included Games Studio subscribers who’d won a contest to be there, and they were decidedly excited with the whole thing, all Yuvraj fans.
