A Mobile Remote Control

From MPP to power WAP shopping for TV channels

Now this is a remote control

Using MPP's iShop Mobile technology, viewers of digital TV channels Thane Direct and Stop & Shop can text the keyword SHOP to the mobile shortcode 82540 to buy a desired product on their mobile.

Payment is made using credit and debit cards, which are stored using MPP's eWallet technology.

Paul Johnson, MPP managing director, said: "The idea of using the mobile phone to make secure purchases over WAP is a logical progression for Mobile Commerce and represents just part of the massive growth that we are seeing in
this marketplace."
