Taking digital services to one step further, Mahindra Comviva has pioneered and launched "Infotainment Portal", a mobile data-based app that allows subscribers to watch and download videos and even share / integrate content with social network websites. First of its kind, this mobile app allows the subscribers to access infotainment through a single app irrespective of the choice of bearer channel between mobile client, text or voice. "Infotainment Portal" is powered by its "Recommendation and Analytics Engine", which recommends content based on the user's profile and his personal preferences rather than content preferred by the crowd as done in most conventional VAS services.
