MTN Nigeria has launched Over-The-Top (OTT) service which brings together telecommunications, broadcasting and media on the same platform.
The telco said in a statement by its PR and Protocol Manager Funso Aina on Wednesday that the new service would go live in Jos, Plateau State, from tomorrow (Thursday).
The TV service is sequel to the issuance of a digital broadcast licence to MTN by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) last year, according to the statement.
According to Ferdi Moolman, CEO, MTN Nigeria, “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.”
