Hutch, Walt Disney in strategic pact for a range of mobile downloads

After securing a tie-up between Walt Disney and Airtel, Walt Disney Internet Group and Hutch have announced a tie-up under which Hutch customers will get a wide range of Disney content on their Hutch phones.

The services include a range of innovative products, including Disney videos, wallpapers, games, comic strips, ring tones and themes. This tie-up will usher in cutting edge technology and fantastic story telling on mobile phones. The customers will be charged Rs 10 for downloading wallpapers, video shorts, animations and ring-tones. Game downloads will, however, be charged at Rs 50 for every Disney game that is downloaded.
