New service will help ease stress through jokes from the show’s acclaimed comedians.
Tata DOCOMO has launched the Comedy Circus service for its CDMA subscribers, in a bid to retain them. The service by unified telecom brand of Tata Teleservices Ltd (TTL) is based on the popular TV series and offers jokes, quotes, and gags of stand-up comedians including Sunil Pal, Naveen Prabhakar, Kashif, and Umer Sheriff. This service was already available to subscribers of the company’s GSM platform.
COO of TTIL Mumbai Circle Anjan Patole said, “We are delighted to launch a very interesting value added service for our customers that adds a touch of humour, a service that is accessible while on the go. Stand-up comedians like Sunil Pal and Naveen Prabhakar are very well known and we are certain that the service like this would be much sought after in our VAS portfolio. It will definitely generate excitement amongst our customers and will increase the level of involvement with its regional content”.
