MTN Launches Digital TV Services

MTN Nigeria has taken a step further by launching its first
ever fully converged broadcast and OTT-VOD service… which means that Nigerians
could now watch TV programmes on their smartphones and other devices via
Over-the-Top platforms like WhatsApp, BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook and
Twitter, among others.

According to the Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria, subscribers will have the
freedom to watch their favourite programmes when they choose the MTN
Video-on-Demand service, “rather than having to watch at a specific broadcast
time.”
“Once we commence
full commercial activities, the TV service will deliver an exciting bouquet of
rich local and international content to Nigerians”.
MTN Nigeria announced the launch of the pilot of its digital
television broadcasting service in Jos, Plateau State, on Wednesday and it went
live yesterday.
You’ll recall that MTN was issued with the 700MHz spectrum
licence last year by the NBC, which is a digital broadcast licence that will
enable MTN Nigeria deliver broadcasting services, along side its core data and
voice service delivery in a globally converged economy.
I am more interested in the 4G LTE Launch…
