YOTVChannels partners with MTN to launch new TV streaming plan in Uganda

YOTVChannels and MTN have introduced a new TV streaming plan in Uganda. YOTVChannels is a mobile and web-based application that offers local media content (TV and Radio) and is available wherever you are.

With more than 50 local channels, YOTVChannels offers its subscribers local content at their convenience with the ability to pause, rewind, record and catch up with missed programs up to 24 hours.

The YOTVChannels application subscription will provide subscribers with unlimited access to local TV and Radio for 30 days FREE trial after which they will shift to a subscription plan of their own preference.

The CEO of YOTVChannels, Aggrey Mugisha specified that this collaboration shows that both MTN and YOTVChannels are willing to promote local content which will enable Ugandans to enjoy uninterrupted local TV and Radio at their convenience through YOTVChannels.

Mugisha stated, “As a purely Ugandan brand, we recognize the importance of Buy Uganda, Build Uganda. As such, we relish every opportunity that further builds our country. All MTN customers with smartphones should simply download the YOTVChannels application and register with their MTN numbers to enjoy local TV and Radio anytime, anywhere.’’

On the other hand, MTN Uganda Ag. Chief Marketing Officer, Sen Somdev, said this collaboration is a win-win for both YOTVChannels and MTN Customers.

Somdev, further declared, “Our customers are now looking for convenience. With the advent of smartphones, more people are now accessing information with just a click of a button anywhere anytime. Life, as it is now, is so busy and people find themselves caught up with work commitments leaving them with little time to catch up with their favourite shows. MTN is therefore pleased to partner with YOTV to bring yet more convenience to our customers because we are good together.”

New users of the platform will receive a 30-days free usage. After expiry, they will have to subscribe to a data plan of their choice introduced by MTN. The new subscriptions are One hour for 0.14 USD (UGX500), One day for 0.27 USD (UGX1,000), One Week for 0.68 USD (UGX2,500), and a month for 2.72 USD (UGX10,000). These bundles are tailored for YOTV Channels and cannot be used for browsing or social networking.
