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…
