How to Activate BSNL 3G TV


BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd.) is a large Indian telephony provider. They offer 3G connectivity at decent speeds and an application to view TV programs on your mobile device. Although there aren't many channels to pick from, you can register and activate the BSNL 3G TV service from within the application. Furthermore, you get the app by sending a simple text message and configuring the device to use BSNL's WAP network.

  • Make sure you are able to receive all messages on your mobile device. For example, on a Nokia, go to the "Options" menu, select "Settings," turn on the "Service Message" option and set the "Download Message" option to "Automatically." On a Sony Ericsson device, go to "Settings," select "Push" and set the "Allow push message" option to "Always" and the "Accept message from" to "All senders."

  • Create a new SMS, type "MY3GTV" and send it to "55447" (without quotes). A SMS containing a WAP link is received within minutes.

  • Configure the device to use the BSNL WAP network. The APN must be set to "bsnlwap", the proxy server address must be "" and the port must be "8080". These settings are the same for all mobile devices, but each device has a different menu. Use the device's user manual to learn how to change the APN, proxy and port.

  • Open the SMS message and follow the WAP link to download and save the application. The device's default browser should start. Note that the application is not saved on Sony Ericsson phones, so you must use the WAP link every time you want to start the 3G TV.

  • Open the app on your mobile device and you see all the available channels. Select one of the channels for a preview and an activation window pops up. Click on the "Get Activation Key" link to get a new activation key. Follow the instructions on your screen to purchase an activation key for the channel and type it in the text box.

  • Click on the "Purchase" button and the available programs are displayed. Select a program to watch and the app starts buffering. It can take a few seconds or a few minutes, depending on your 3G signal strength.
