Archana Anand, Business Head, dittoTV said, âFootball is one of the most followed sports, especially by the younger audience in the country. However, due to the late airing time of the Champions League matches, many football fans miss out on the action on TV. With dittoTV, viewers can tune in to Ten 1 HD on their smartphones, laptops or any internet-enabled devices and catch all the football action in real time. We are extremely excited to bring this event to viewers on our platform.â
dittoTV will allow viewers to enjoy the late-night matches at their own convenience. This includes students in hostels who have limited access to television, as well as viewers in a single TV household who would otherwise miss out on matches for fear of disturbing other members.
The final game will take place on June 3 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. dittoTV subscribers can tune into Ten 1 HD at 12:15 am to catch the UEFA Champions League live. The platform is available on Android and iOS platforms. The subscription charges for one month, three months, six months and one year are Rs 20, Rs 50, Rs 90 and Rs 170, respectively.
