92.7 BIG FM Goes Mobile

By March 1st, 2010 AT 1:45 PM

Reliance Media World Ltd’s radio division 92.7 BIG FM has entered into a partnership with India’s largest telecom VAS provider, OnMobile Global Ltd., to launch the radio experience on the mobile platform.

For the first time in India, BIG Mobile Radio will give mobile users the option to listen to 17 multi-lingual specially programmed channels anywhere in India.

This service will enable the BIG Mobile Radio experience to go from 45 cites to over 4500 cities and towns including rural areas in an ad-free format.

Apart from reaching a new audience, this service will allow users to listen to their favourite programmed channels regardless of their location. For example, even a Tamil listener in Mumbai will be able to listen to native-language programming on Big Mobile Radio.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Rabe. T. Iyer, Business Head, Allied Businesses, Reliance Media World Ltd. said, “We are extremely excited to join hands with the leaders in M-Vas, OnMobile. This partnership only strengthens 92.7 BIG FM’s endeavor to grow radio audiences both within India and the world over. Our effort is to reach radio to the deepest pockets of India, while growing the Indian diaspora overseas, giving them the flavor of radio from back home.”

Mr. Sanjay Uppal, President and COO, OnMobile, said, Using our innovations in technology we are happy to re-shape the radio medium from being a city-centered service to a global service accessible on any mobile.  OnMobile is ushering in a new experience by removing the geographic barriers to accessing content. ”

The operators who will offer the BIG Mobile Radio experience will be announced shortly.
