StarTimes Distributes Set-Top Boxes To Its Media Partners In Guinea

StarTimes recently offered decoders and two years of subscription to its Guinean media partners for their collaboration and support in promoting their services.

According to Qiao Ying, the Director of Startimes, 2018 was a fantastic year for StarTimes which marked its 30th year of existence and ten years of delivering services in Africa.

Qiao Ying declared that in 2018 StarTimes took part in a lot of activities that were promoted by the media, so the company feels that now is the time to show its gratitude and recognition to its media partners. Ying further said that usually when an entity celebrates a birthday, it receives gifts, but it is the opposite when it comes to StarTimes who instead chose to offer each media partner decoders plus two years of free subscription to have access to all of StarTimes channels.

She said that StarTimes is showing appreciation to all the media that supported it in 2018 when the pay-TV operator launched its StarTimes application through which it gained a lot of customers. The Director of StarTimes said that the company has more than 20 million users in Africa and that in Guinea it also gained enough customers thanks to the media.
Ying said that StarTimes also launched the access project for 10,000 African villages which was a huge success thanks to the press that publicised all that the company wanted to convey to customers and users.

According to the Director of StarTimes, her firm also organised the conference on the fight against AIDS in Guinea in 2018 and the summit of the Africa-China Cooperation Forum. StarTimes also signed numerous contracts in several fields of activity including football.

She added that StarTimes also inked partnerships with SOS Village and also sponsored and produced a full Nollywood series that was a first in the African continent.

Qiao Ying said that in sports StarTimes signed partnerships with Ugandan and Senegalese teams.
