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.
