New Delhi: Leading Pay TV platform Tata Sky has extended the benefit of its pioneering OTT content aggregator service, ‘Tata Sky Binge,’ to mobile with the introduction of Tata Sky Binge Mobile app.

The OTT aggregation app curates’ content from multiple streaming services into categories such as new releases, popular movies, Trending Now to make content discoverability easy. Content surfing using language, genre, app rails etc., makes search and recommendations faster and convenient. The tab bar at the bottom of the screen gives easy access to Home screen, Search and Watchlist. Single subscription, single payment and single sign-on to view content on one unified platform makes viewing immersive and enjoyable, said the company on Wednesday.

The company has introduced the Tata Sky Binge Mobile app with two attractive plans. Subscribers opting for a Tata Sky Binge 299 plan will be able to access content from 10 OTT apps on one TV screen (through Amazon Fire TV Stick – Tata Sky Edition or Binge+ STB) and three mobile screens.
