Telecom service provider Tata Teleservices Ltd. (TTSL) Thursday announced the launch of DIALOG, a product that enables customers to connect to the internet on their television set.

Customers can access the internet without a desktop or laptop, transforming the TV set into a multimedia device with the help of DIALOG.

“We are launching the product first time in the country simultaneously in Chennai and Kolkata. We will take three months for the testing period and after that we will go for an all-India launch of DIALOG in the first quarter of FY11,” TTSL national sales head Abhijit Sanyal said here at a press meet.

“In today's day and age, the television set is a common and essential commodity in all households-we will help our customers experience the unique proposition of turning on their televisions to access the internet, check their e-mails, watch streaming video and listen to online music,” said Sanjiv Sinha, Regional Head (East) and Chief Operating Officer of Tata Teleservices Limited CDMA Operations in Kolkata.
