Telenor’s Djuice seems to be finding its focus now — they have announced a partnership with ROK (the company that let them offer
Mobile TV) to now deliver comics to djuice customers through a
subscription service. While being announced under the DJuice brand, this service should be available for all Telenor customers.
No word on which comic strips will be offered, but it should be safe to assume that Garfield will be one of them.
What is known is that the service will be available as a WAP-based system similar to MobileTV. While that might have made sense for streaming TV services, I personally think it would be great if we could simply register for some comics and have them delivered over MMS to the phone (maybe that’s already there, we’ll see).
No word on pricing either — per-comic-strip-per-month would be a reasonable structure.
I could pay Rs50-100 / month for dilbert comic updates in my pocket. Especially if they let me time those comics so that I can receive them right in the middle of the weekly progress meeting — that is when I need to just laugh off reality the most.
