Nigeria: StarTimes To Broadcast 'Uninterrupted' World Cup Action To Viewers
The pay-TV company says it can make such a promise because of its investments in improving the technology behind the signal strength and distribution across the nation.
Mr Qasim Elegbede, StarTimes Nigeria's brand and marketing director said StarTimes has everything in place to deliver clear, quality and uninterrupted signal for all of the 64 matches live and in HD to Nigerian subscribers without the usual restriction of rain and storm.
Only a few weeks ago, the broadcaster launched its 2018 FIFA World Cup promotion, that tells a story which starts with a flashback to a boy’s first World Cup experience in 1994. It runs through subsequent tournaments highlighting the wins and losses of the Super Eagles before concluding with a promise to bring the coverage of Russia 2018 on StarTimes to viewers in Nigeria at an affordable price.
StarTimes is the leading digital TV operator in Africa, serving nearly 10 million subscribers with a signal covering the whole continent and a distribution network of about 200 brand halls, 3,000 convenience stores and over 5,000 distributors. The pay TV company also owns a featured content platform, with 480 authorised channels which airs news, sports, movies, series, entertainment, children’s programs and others.
