Mobile TV as a value added feature epitomises convergence in technology realising the distant dream of live television viewing on the move. Our association with Alcatel-Lucent enables us to materialise that Indian 3G subscriber's aspiration for a revolutionary product," said Kailash Choudhari, managing director, Aksh Optifibre.
