MTN Nigeria unveils converged digital TV, OTT service

MTN Nigeria has unveiled its much awaited converged digital television with Over-The-Top (OTT) service, reports ITRealms.

The station thus brings into convergence, telecommunications, broadcasting and media on a given technology stage.

OTT in broadcasting is the delivery of audio, video, and other media over the Internet without the involvement of a multiple-system operator.
Public Relations and Protocol Manager at MTN Nigeria, Mr. Funso Aina  in a press statement made available to the media, said the new service has initially gone live in Jos, Plateau State, beginning last Thursday.
ITRealms also gathered that the TV service follows the recent granting of a digital broadcast licence to MTN Nigeria by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) last year.
Aina also quoted the chief executive officer, MTN Nigeria, Mr. Ferdi Moolman said, the ICT converged company is committed to providing Nigerians with innovative digital platforms which will enhance the way people 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 programmes when they choose to via MTN VOD (Video-on-demand) 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,” Moolman said.
