The device is orb-shaped MP3 mobile accessory that injects into audio output of mobile and can turn mobile into remote that can control Tata Sky set-top box, TV, amplifier and DVD players. I’m testing the device and app since last few weeks and wants to submit my review.

My 3 Pointer View

1. I’m waiting for Android app of the Tata Sky Mobile Access to test it on wider range of devices and tablets!
2. The social features of app reminds me of Meso (social platforms for folks watching TV and different movies/shows).
3. As far as pricing is concern 350 Bucks is not a big deal to try the device, well, if you still don’t want to buy the device then the programme guide via app is really fabulous 🙂
