MUMBAI: Sports is a key content peg for Fever FM. Every T20 season, the teams change, the stakes change but there is one thing that remains the same – Fever FM is the official radio partner of Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders.

In Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai, Fever FM is running a flagship initiative – ‘Junior Daredevils’, ‘Junior Knight Riders’ and ‘Junior Super Kings’ respectively where parents will get a chance to fight it out on air and win their children a once in a lifetime chance to meet the players in the dugout just before the match begins. And Radio Nasha will give a VIP treatment, merchandise and tickets under its initiative ‘Dilli Ke VIP’ to honour the people who have brought a positive change in Delhi. From giving away match tickets every 104th minute, meet and greet with the players to original franchisee merchandise, the entire season willbe celebrated akin to a festival on Fever FM. The players from the franchises will be heard in a never before avatar on Fever FM. From exclusive interviews to entertaining snippets of them singing Bollywood numbers, all can be caught only on Fever FM.

They will host the evening drive from Sunday to Saturday between 5 pm to 9 pm. Already creating loads of buzz among the celebs of tinsel town, Rashmi and Sharique are the Gen-Y entertainers who understand the pulse of this ever-changing city. From Dev to Abir Chatterjee, from Rukmini to Nusrat, every Tollywood star is curious to know more about the ‘Agle Superstars’.

On this opportunity RJ Rashmi says, “It is indeed a unique opportunity to helm the most popular evening show in town. U-turn won’t be the same again for sure. Each day we will come up with original, trendy and stimulating content, and obviously only the super-hit music will play for our listeners. It’s an exciting time for Red FM and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Adding to that RJ Sharique states, “It’s an honour to be hosting the drive time slot on RED FM. I have been an avid listener all this time and can’t wait to be part of it. Being a radio show producer previously, I know how to cater to my listeners. And only the best content will be served to them.”

With innovative content, renewed show format and new radio jockeys to steer U-turn, listeners will never be bored. The cool avatar of U-turn defines the millennials who needs everything instantly and on-the-go. High on fun quotient this show promises to deliver non-stop exuberance from 5pm to 9pm every day. Rightfully called the ‘Agle Superstars’ RJ Rashmi and RJ Sharique will let you unwind while they tickle your funny bone as you sail through evening drive smoothly.

  Reliance Jio Adds Highest Monthly Subscribers In A Year
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 08:06 PM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. added the highest monthly users in a year as it continues to gain subscribers at the expense of smaller telecom operators.

Reliance Jio added close to 87 lakh subscribers in February, the highest since February 2017, according to the latest data released by the telecom regulator. It now has 17.7 crore users or 15.3 percent share of the market.

The user addition could have been partly fuelled by lower tariffs and JioPhone. The carrier cut pricing twice in January.

[Image: bloombergquint%2F2018-04%2Fc915633c-2f8c...4&fm=pjpeg]

About 86 percent of Reliance Jio’s subscribers are active on the network, lower than its larger peers. The number of active users, however, has been increasing consistently.

[Image: bloombergquint%2F2018-04%2Fc3ef8576-8326...4&fm=pjpeg]

Reliance Jio’s larger rivals Bharti Airtel Ltd., Vodafone India Ltd. and Idea Cellular Ltd. together added close to 1.2 crore subscribers. Vodafone added the most users in 18 months and Idea Cellular the highest in 16 months.

Overall, all carriers together added a net of 49 lakh users in February.

Among the smaller operators, barring state-owned BSNL, all lost subscribers in February. Reliance Communications Ltd., Tata Teleservices Ltd., Aircel, MTNL and Telenor’s customer base fell by more than 1.65 crore during the month.

Tata Teleservices and Telenor have completely stopped providing services, while Aircel has reportedly halted services in six of its circles and filed for insolvency. Anil Ambani owned RCom sold its assets and has decided to operate as a virtual network operator.

The pressure on customer addition and SIM consolidation is expected to continue as carrier on the verge of exiting consumer wireless services still have close to 13.2 percent of India’s user base.

Reliance Jio’s customer market share increased the most by 69 basis points, while that of other operators rose 20 to 31 basis points.

Since Reliance Jio’s launch, only Vodafone India has lost its share, while Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular have managed to hold their ground.

  ICC World Cup 2019: India to Open Campaign Against South Africa
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 07:41 PM - Forum: Sports Zone - No Replies

Kolkata: India will open their 2019 World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 4 instead of June 2 as the BCCI will have to maintain a mandatory 15-day gap between IPL final and international assignment as per the Lodha Committee recommendation.

The 2019 World Cup will be held in the UK from May 30 to July 14. The matter was discussed during the ICC Chief Executives Meeting here on Tuesday.

"The 2019 IPL will be played between March 29 and May 19. But we need to maintain a 15-day gap and World Cup starts on May 30. Therefore as per 15 day gap we could have only played on June 4. Earlier, we were scheduled to start on June 2 but we couldn't have played on that day," a senior BCCI official said.

"South Africa are our first opponents. The CEC agreed and the matter has been referred to the ICC board," he further added.

Interestingly, ICC in their various marquee events have always started with an Indo-Pak fixture which is a sureshot sell-out. It happened in the 2015 World Cup in Australia (at Adelaide) and 2017 Champions Trophy in UK (in Birmingham).

"This is the first time Indo-Pak match won't be a starting affair. Since the format will be a round robin affair (all teams playing each other like 1992)," the official added.

Among the other decisions that were formalised included the FTP for the next five year cycle from 2019-23.

"As we had decided, India will play a maximum 309 days of international cricket in this cycle across formats, a reduction of 92 days from the earlier cycle.

"However the number of home Test matches will increase from 15 to 19. All these Tests will be part of the World Test Championship," he added.

It was also confirmed that India will not play any Day/Night Test match for now as it's not a part of World Test Championship.

"All matches in ICC World Test Championship are day matches played with red ball. If that's the case, there is no point in playing pink ball Tests if it doesn't help in preparation for World Test Championship," he concluded.

  Google makes it easier to search for jobs in India
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 07:27 PM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

[Image: google-job-search.jpg&w=735&h=425&q=100]

Google has announced that it’s rolling out a new search feature that will allow its users in India to find relevant jobs. The search giant promises that this new feature would let users search for job opportunities in an easier way by listing jobs from local as well as online websites and classifieds. The move comes as a continuing trend from Google’s end to deliver India-specific products.

Upon searching for “jobs near me”, users will be able to see a list of results with in-depth descriptions that can be explored till one finds the relevant job they’re looking for. The latest feature comes as part of Google’s partnerships with IBM Talent, LinkedIn, QuikrJobs, TimesJobs, Aasaanjobs, Freshersworld, Headhonchos,, T-Jobs, Quezx and Wisdomjobs, through which Google will sort out a comprehensive set of employment opportunities for you.

[Image: PiX8KpSYyPPWPHETLdHivaISZJyb_W18wiG4a-T7...d_DeUkpWLC]

There are over a million listings across various jobs and ninety thousand employers to choose from within India itself. Upon searching for a job, the results that a user will be greeted with will contain all details about the listing including job type, position, location and the site through which the job can be applied for.

Users will be able to save the jobs that they like so they can get back to it on their own time. Google also offers alerts for jobs which will notify an opening or a listing through email. Google’s job search feature is available in English on iOS and Android devices through its search app and can also be accessed by searching for jobs on mobile and desktop.

Speaking about the announcement, VP Google India, Rajan Anandan says “We know that people turn to Search while looking for a job. In Q4 last year, we saw more than a 45% increase in the number of job search queries, and this number is continuously growing. However today, the job search experience is not always effective. On the other hand companies -- especially SMEs -- that are the largest job creators are often unable to make their listings discoverable. This new job search experience powered by our partners and our open platform approach attempts to bridge this gap”.

  Travelxp to launch in UK as FTA service on Freeview platform
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 07:22 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

MUMBAI: Travel and lifestyle channel Travelxp will launch in the UK on 30 April as a free to air (FTA) service on Freeview UK platform. Travelxp said it is the first TV channel from India to launch in the UK for mainstream audiences. The distribution on Freeview will allow the channel to reach close to 16 million homes.

The UK is the first market where the channel will follow the ad model. In all other markets, it follows the subscription model. The channel’s ad inventory is claimed to have been sold out.

Travelxp will also produce content for UK locally through its UK Production Office, across genres like destination, food, culture, nature, heritage, lifestyle and more. The UK production hub will be the first outside India. Travelxp MD Europe Sumant Bahl also leads Travelxp UK from its Greater London office.

Travelxp CEO Prashant Chothani noted that unlike other Indian channels which primarily target South Asians the travel and lifestyle channel will target the mainstream viewers in the UK. “Our launch in the UK on Freeview is yet another major step in our mission to help lovers and aficionados of travel explore the best of travel and lifestyle vicariously through Travelxp, and to encourage them to step out and explore our beautiful world in person,” Chothani added.

Travelxp’s launch on the Freeview platform, which reaches nearly 99% of TV homes in the UK, will add nearly-16-million TV homes to the 75 million-plus TV homes Travelxp already reaches worldwide. Every television manufactured in the UK after 2008 includes an inbuilt Freeview tuner that enables it to receive channels from Freeview, which is operated by DTV Services, a joint venture between the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky and transmitter operator Arqiva.

The channel’s most popular shows from its six main categories of Destination, Lifestyle, Food, Culture, Nature, and Heritage will be available to UK TV homes on the Freeview network.

Commenting on the content plan for Travelxp UK, Bahl said, “We are known for our mainstream approach, which focuses, always, on the entire mainstream audience instead of the diaspora alone as that would limit our reach and impact. For the UK audiences, we shall not only continue to provide our world-class mainstream content from our large library of over 1000 hours, we will also produce similarly engrossing and quality content locally in the UK, on all key travel aspects of Destination, Food, Culture, Nature, Heritage, Lifestyle and more. This locally produced content will resonate with the discerning UK audiences, and add immense value to our ever-growing content library too.”

Travelxp has made aggressive marketing plans targeting the large mainstream audience market in the UK. The plans include TV campaigns on mainstream Television and Digital Billboard Screens across the UK on buses, the Underground, and on Social Media, amongst other initiatives.

Content on Travelxp for TV homes on the Freeview network:

Destination: The destination category includes episodes about destinations from popular series like Backpack, Off The Grid, Glimpses, Xplore World, Xplore India, XP Guide, City Breaks, Nordic Quest, Summer Escapes and special series on Nepal – Hope Never Dies.
