TalkTalk has a new mobile TV service up its sleeve that it hopes will rival BT and Sky.
The quad-play provider is working on a new "mobile TV content service", a source has told TrustedReviews. The site has also seen a letter asking TalkTalk customers to take part in market research related to the project.
The letter asks them to "get involved in the first stage of a completely new product." It will involve meeting with the company's designers for an "exploratory session" in its Farringdon office in London.
The letter says: "We are looking for customers who have TalkTalk broadband and watch video from services like Netflix and Amazon using mobile devices such as a smartphone, tablet or personal computer. Having TalkTalk TV is a plus but not required."
The letter is from Davide Turi, senior product manager for TV at TalkTalk. Turi previously worked at Sky, where he oversaw the development and launch of Sky Q, the firm's latest TV service.
TalkTalk already has two mobile TV apps – TV2Go and TalkTalk Player – but neither has been particularly well received.
A TalkTalk spokesperson told TrustedReviews: "As we continue to invest in enhancing our TalkTalk TV offering we are developing a number of innovations. To ensure customers are at the centre of our product experience, we consult them as part of the development process.
"We're not able to share any further info on the product at the moment."
