MTN Nigeria launches converged Digital TV, OTT VoD service

Thursday 26 May 2016 | 09:23 CET | News
MTN Nigeria is piloting its digital television broadcasting service in Jos, Plateau State. This follows the issuance of a digital broadcast licence to MTN by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) in 2015. According to MTN CEO Ferdi Moolman, once it commences full commercial activities, the TV service will deliver local and international content. In addition, viewers will be able to watch their favourite programmes when they choose to via the MTN VoD service, rather than having to watch at a specific broadcast time.
