I see people watching movies and exclusive videos of reality shows in smartphones. But we had no option to enjoy TV shows missed on TV than to wait for re-telecast yet, but now people can enjoy every show even after missing it. I like to watch reality shows and NEWS channels, My mom likes to watch daily soaps. In every home, each member’s favourite shows run on same time but only one show plays in the house. But now we don’t need to worry. If we subscribe Tata Sky+ Transfer, we can enjoy any show even after missing it without waiting for re-telecast. We need to just set a reminder to record our favourite movie, TV show, news program, live match etc and after that we need to transfer recorded show into our smartphone. Its over! We can enjoy the show anytime and anywhere.
