Aiming to attract the growing number of smartphone users, Public Broadcaster Doordarshan has started beaming free TV services to mobile phones in 16 cities, including the four metros.

In a statement in New Delhi, the broadcaster said Digital Terrestrial Television services of Doordarshan have started operation from February 25 in 16 cities, thereby providing mobile TV to the users.

The sixteen cities are Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Guwahati, Patna, Ranchi, Cuttack, Lucknow, Jalandhar, Raipur, Indore, Aurangabad, Bhopal, Bangalore and Ahmedabad.

Mobile TV can be received in and around these cities using DVB-T2 dongles in OTG enabled smartphones and tablets, Wi-Fi dongles for moving vehicles, besides the TV sets having built-in DVB-T2 tuner which are called Integrated Digital TV (iDTV).

While iDTV are available in Sony , LG ,
Panasonic , Samsung etc, the dongles are also available on online shopping sites like

Flipkart , eBay, Snapdeal etc, the statement added.
Users are required to download the softwares and plug these dongles in smartphones and tablets to receive DD signal.

"There will be no charges for watching the DD channels. Also, no Internet is required after installation of the software," the statement added.
Currently DD National, DD News, DD Bharati, DD Sports, DD Regional/DD Kisan are being relayed. Only one-time investment of dongle will be required by viewers and there will be no extra expenditure unlike streaming with Internet.

The TV pictures are free from "ghosting" and "snowing", the statement added.

Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) secures greater plurality in platform ownership, ensuring that no single platform owner is so powerful that they can exert undue influence on public opinion or political agendas, the statement said.
