Indiatimes mobile phone content now available in the UAE

United Arab Emirates: Sunday, October 29 - 2006 @ 11:42

Indi5566, produced in partnership with Times Internet Ltd., part of the Times of India Group, provides live Indian news and entertainment content for mobile telephones.

Says Ross Deas, The Millionaire Co., UAE representative for Indi5566: “Indiatimes by Times Internet today provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date mobile phone content of Indian news and its large subscriber base is proof of its popularity. The introduction of Times Internet content to the UAE signals a profound change for Indians living in the emirates, many of whom are already regular users of Indiatimes.com, in how to gather information and news.

“The UAE is home to a dynamic Indian community, many of whom want to be alerted as to what’s happening back home. Whether it is up-to-date share price information, or the latest cricket scores, Indi5566 fills a void for mobile content that is specifically developed for the Indian community.”

Indi5566 provides its subscribers with a host of services under the infotainment umbrella, including news and stock market updates, cricket updates, the latest dispatches from India’s thriving Bollywoood film fraternity, but also ring tones and music snippets. Content is available to subscribers for a monthly fee of AED30 or at a daily rate of AED1. New subscribers can simply log on to indi5566.com and select the information they require and will be receiving their customised content henceforth.

“There’s already a robust demand and Indian residents in the emirates are particularly eager for digital content that serves their requirements,” said Sanjive Sethi, Executive Director, Times Internet. Indi5566 is a true connection to India and over the next few months its offerings will be expanded by a new assortment of services to provide more world-class mobile content.
