DishTV, ICICI Bank join hands to bring banking to TV screens

Essel Group’s direct-to-home service provider DishTV on October 7 announced its association with ICICI Bank to launch an interactive banking service, ‘ICICIACTIVE’, which will allow DishTV viewers to access information on ICICI Bank products and services on their TV screens.

The range of information will include product features, EMI amount on various loans, eligibility criteria, documentation, and time required for processing a request, ICICI Bank’s ATM and branch locators, etc. Information related to these products and services would be shown along with a toll free customer service number that viewers can call and apply or seek further information on a product of their choice. It will allow potential customers to be pre-informed of the services, which is will lead to faster processing and delivery.
