Big TV Launches iStock to Track Market News

big tv launches istock Reliance Big TV in partnership with Reliance Money has introduced another interactive feature, iStock, that provides information about Indian and international indices, currencies, commodity, stock and market news. This would be India's first portfolio tracking application through the DTH platform.

iStock will also provide subscribers with value-added services including a personal portfolio management tracker. The portfolio manager will also allow users to add, track upward/downward movement of their stocks automatically and the overall gain/ loss of their investments.
