UAE telecom operator du launched du View, a service that allows customers to watch du TV content on their Smart TV, Apple or Android device, or Xbox One.

For mobile customers using both iOS and Android devices, du View will be rolled out in two phases.

The first phases will allow customers to view du TV channels on their smart devices, while the launch of phase two will allow customers to view On Demand Club content on their devices. du On Demand Club offers hundreds of Hollywood and Arabic TV shows, movies, documentaries, children’s entertainment and music videos.

Customers using a Smart TV can access du View through a custom-designed app developed by the TV App Agency, using TV App Engine technology. The app will allow customers to watch their du TV content across more than 100 Smart TV and connected devices. The Smart TV app will be available on Samsung Smart TVs and will extend to other Smart TVs in further rollouts.

At GITEX Technology Week, du also launched the region’s first local Xbox One app. This allows du TV subscribers who own an Xbox One to download the du View Anywhere app and watch du TV content through their Xbox One.

Fahad Al Hassawi, chief commercial officer, du, said: “The additional convenience of the du View Anywhere app’s Kinect compatibility emphasises the simplicity that technology brings to our communication. Interaction today is as simple as gesturing at your screen.”
