Mumbai : Hinduja Ventures has planned to run the field testing of Headend-in-the-Sky (HITS) platform in January-February 2015. It will officially roll out the service by April 2015. It has planned to captivate over eight to ten million subscribers during the testing phase.
“We are working as per the plan and are on schedule. By the time we launch, we will have close to 8-10 million consumers being serviced through our HITS platform” said Tony D’silva, MD and Group CEO of IMCL.
“We want to test our services and make sure that the set top boxes (STBs) are of top quality. There have been a lot of issues with the boxes all across the country and so we want to subject the STBs to all kinds of heat, cold and dust test,” he added.
The company has planned to enter into an annual maintenance contract (AMC) for set-top-boxes. The company is the third company in India to receive a HITS licence after Essel Group and Noida Software Technology Park.
