ESPOO, Finland – You may have seen some excitement online about a new TV service from Nokia for our Lumia smartphones.
We are very pleased to be able to confirm that Nokia TV, the latest Lumia entertainment offering from Nokia following Nokia Music and Nokia Reading, will be introduced in Finland in the coming weeks.
Like Nokia Music and Nokia Reading, Nokia TV creates a free signature hub experience for catch-up TV services.
When the service launches, users of Lumia smartphones in Finland will be able to conveniently browse or search through the available catalogues of catch-up TV services from major local broadcasters and then stream a chosen show directly to their phone – without any sign up or registration.
“With Nokia TV we are bringing existing services in Finland together in a convenient way. We’re making it easier for people to find and watch TV, while supporting broadcasters’ existing internet TV business models,” said Mika Suomela, head of TV and video at Nokia.
“Finland is the ideal country in which to introduce this service due to its advanced mobile user base and great existing broadcaster catch-up TV services.”
