Tuluntulu has added an education, talent and religious channel to its lineup, among other new offerings. Its content now includes 40 TV channels and 28 radio stations – and the app is claimed to use less data than any other video service.
As the cost of smartphones and mobile data decreases and free Wi-Fi becomes more commonplace, watching video content on mobile devices is finally becoming more affordable.
