Sky Uses Symbian for Content Distribution
British Sky Broadcasting (Sky) and Symbian have annoucned that BSkyB selected Symbian OS for Sky by mobile, an interactive application which puts Sky UK’s digital TV service into the hands of mobile phone users.

Symbian develops Symbian OS, a mobile operating system for smartphones, which is licensed to handset manufacturers.

Sky by mobile offers Sky digital and Sky Bet customers a way to access Sky on the move. Once downloaded from Sky by mobile onto an appropriate 2.5G or 3G Symbian OS phone, users are presented with a viewing guide with the same look and feel as the Sky Guide, Sky’s electronic programme guide.

The Symbian OS application offers a range of TV content, including sports, entertainment, news and weather and provides access to a wide range of interactive services including personalised news, sports headlines and ‘on the fly’ betting for Sky Bet account holders.
