The media industry in Uganda is getting more serious and competitive looking at the new advancements that have hit the market.

YoTVChannels and MTN Uganda have unveiled a first of its kind TV streaming plan for Ugandans.

YOTVChannels is a mobile and web-based solution that offers local media content (TV and Radio) and makes it seamlessly available wherever you are at a very cheap price.

With more than 50 local channels already, YOTVChannels allows its customers to enjoy local content at their convenience with ability to pause, rewind, record and catch up with missed programs up to 24 hours. 

 The YOTVChannels  App subscription will provide customers with unlimited access to local TV and Radio for 30 days FREE trial after which they will upgrade to a subscription plan of their own choice.

While announcing this partnership, Aggrey Mugisha YoTVChannels CEO noted that this partnership shows that both MTN and YoTVChannels are committed to promoting local content through allowing Ugandans to enjoy uninterrupted local TV and Radio at their convenience through YOTVChannels.

“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 smart phones should simply download the YOTVChannels APP and register with their MTN numbers to enjoy local TV and Radio anytime, anywhere. At the end of 30 days of free viewing, YOTVChannels users can then upgrade to a subscription plan of their choice starting with as low as UGX 500. We are delighted to partner with MTN Uganda on this,”  Aggrey Mugisha explained.

On his part, MTN Uganda Ag. Chief Marketing Officer, Sen Somdev, said this partnership is a win-win for both YOTVChannels and MTN Customers.

“Our customers are now looking for convenience. With the advent of smart phones, 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,” Sen Somdev said.
