MTN Nigeria yesterday launched its digital television broadcasting service in Jos, Plateau state, giving cognisance of the era of telecommunications, broadcasting and media intersection.
The TV service came after the issuance of digital broadcast licence to the telecom operator by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) last year.
According to its Chief Executive Officer, Ferdi Moolman, “MTN is committed to providing Nigerians with innovative digital platforms which will enhance the way we live, work and play. Once we commence full commercial activities, the TV service will deliver an exciting bouquet of rich local and international content to Nigerians.
“In addition, subscribers will have the freedom to watch their favourite programs when they choose to via MTN VOD service, rather than having to watch at a specific broadcast time. This will be the first fully converged broadcast and OTT-VOD service to launch in MTN,” he said.
