Bhaalu is an Internet-based Digital Video Recomendation engine that allows you to enjoy all of your TV and enjoy your favorite programmes when it is convenient with your schedule (time-shift), and from any location (place-shift) suitable with your busy lifestyle.

Browse through channels in an efficient and relaxed manner with an intuituve, easy-to-use virtual 3D navigation system displaying thumbnail images of each show in an intelligently structured format. Bhaalu also socialises your television by interfacing with social media portals, allowing you to engage in real-time discussions and TV show recommendations with friends & family.

Bhaalu manifests as three distinct products to meet a variety of consumer needs:
  • Bhaalu Mobile - Watch TV from any location on your laptop, tablet or smart phone.
  • Bhaalu Stick - Portable HDMI device plugs into any HDMI enabled monitor or TV.
  • Bhaalu Box - Universal Set-Top Box delivering all your TV to the home big-screen.

All three products offer the same intuitive user-interface, social media channels, smart categories and time-shifting capabilities, and controlled by a single bhaalu account.






Bhaalu Mobile let's you enjoy your TV on the go. Connect to your bhaalu account through your laptop, PC, smart phone or tablet, and watch all of your TV at anytime, from any place through your mobile carrier's Wi-Fi signal, or any open Wi-Fi.

  • Functions on most Android and Mac iOS devices
  • Full place-shifting and time-shifting of TV viewing
  • Same Intuitive User Interface as the device products
  • NOTE: Hardware not included, user must have own device




Bhaalu Stick is an HDMI device that plugs directly into your TV's HDMI portal and receives the TV stream via your home internet Wi-Fi or by an USB Ethernet cable.

  • Wi-Fi -OR- Ethernet port Internet connection to receive the recommendation TV stream
  • Compact device for easy portability to plug into any HDMI compatible TV
  • Custom bhaalu-specific remote control is included for easy navigation




Bhaalu Box connects to your home internet by an Ethernet cable or by it's attachable screw-in Wi-Fi antenne. The box connects to your big-screen TV using an HDMI cable.

  • Full (HD) 1080p Hi-Definition streaming television video signal
  • Wi-Fi -OR- Ethernet port Internet connection to receive the recommended TV stream
  • 128 GB of built-in SSD hard drive space for extra buffering and ad-hoc storage
  • Custom bhaalu-specific remote control is included for easy navigation





Bhaalu Remote Control has been specifically designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. The ergonomically designed remote allows you to feel which way is up or down by feel alone.

  • Included with both Stick and Box device products
  • Simplicity in navigation




Next-generation TV hardware deserves innovative software. All three bhaalu products are powered by the same software that drives the user interface and all interactions the consumer has with their TV, such as zapping through channels, choosing channels to recommend, playing back and setting favourites and social media channels.
 



Bhaalu's channel navigation automatically sorts your TV content into contextual and meaningful rows and columns. The left column displays channels, including personalized and social media channels. Horizontally along the bottom is each scheduled TV programme as it was captured chronologically throughout the day. And the right side column will display each of the daily or weekly episodes of a given series, when it is highlighted along the bottom row.

Bhaalu's channel navigation software has several outstanding patents pending, and designed based on extensive research into the neuro-psychological and mathematical modeling of human moods such as frustration and relaxation. All human to TV interactions using bhaalu becomes a remarkably relaxing and enjoyable experience.


Here are some of the problems, frustrations and limitations that you may experience with your existing television platform. Bhaalu resolves all of these key issues.

  • Surfing through endless TV channels unable to find anything good to watch.
  • Waiting for a channel to tune-in, only to find a shopping cart asking you to subscribe.
  • Unable to categorize programmes contextually by series, movie, news and sports
  • Tuning into an interesting programme midway or near the end, unable to rewind it.
  • Cumbersome interface for watching scheduled TV and channel content.
  • Textual spreadsheet-style electronic guides for navigating through channels.
  • Limited TV-Anywhere and TV-Everywhere capabilities.
  • Limited Social Media Interactivity.



The Singapore Free-To-Air TV market is served by MediaCorp™. Approximately 40% (540,000 households) of the 1.5 million Singaporean households, tune-in to FTA TV.

Bhaalu will launch in August 2014, fully equipped with recommendation capabilities for all seven MediaCorp™ Free-To-Air television channels.

The Singapore Pay-TV market is predominately offered by StarHub™ cable TV, 535,000 subscribers, and SingTel™ MioTV™, with 405,000 subscribers. This yields a total subscriber base of 940,000 households (approximately 60% of the 1.5m households) and 252 channels of content.

Bhaalu will launch August 2014, supporting as many Pay-TV channels that pre-orders make possible. Additional channel support will continue to be added over time as the Bhaalu Community grows.
