TV Anywhere (TVA), an emerging media technology company has partnered with MTN, a leading mobile network operator in South Sudan, and Target Media to launch South Sudan’s first mobile television platform called MTN TV+.
MTN TV+ is a mobile streaming service that enables access to live television broadcasts from both local and international television stations as well as Video on Demand (VOD) Content on your smartphones and other smart devices like tablets and smart TVs.
Customers of MTN TV+ can stream on Android, IOS apps, and web clients for watching live linear TV, Video on Demand (VOD), and catch-up content. The platform is built with the latest technology in the digital media and streaming industry.
Speaking on the launch of such a world-class platform in the country, MTN South Sudan Chief Executive Officer, Gordian Kyomukama said “This MTN TV+ Platform is our latest innovation, as part of our commitment to bring the best of the world to South Sudan. With MTN TV+, customers anywhere in the country can watch television and other video-on-demand content, on their phones and tablets. This is also our contribution to the local creative community to enable them to have a platform on which they can showcase their works”
On his part, the Group CEO of Target Media Group, Abraham Anyang, lauded the partnership which has delivered this world-class platform to the people of South Sudan. He further noted that “With this platform, we have provided media houses and content creators an opportunity to take their content everywhere in the country. If we want to put South Sudan content on Netflix, it is impossible. But today, we have our own platform on which to tell our stories. Local media and content creators should take advantage of this and begin to create educational and developmental content that can help accelerate the development of South Sudan”.
Also commenting on the launch, the CEO of TV Anywhere, Obafemi Banigbe said, “the potential of video streaming service in South Sudan has been largely untapped, and, partnering with MTN will help bring affordable and accessible entertainment service to its esteemed customers while providing a digital platform to showcase the enormous potential of the Media industry in the country. TV Anywhere is proud to be part of this history-making innovation, and we pledge our commitment to ensure that this service is successful”.
