Nigerian telecommunications company 9Mobile has unveiled a mobile television service called 9TV.
The entertainment platform offers free-to-air local and international channels, music, movies, live TV, series and reality shows, which are accessible via smart devices.
9TV also features documentaries, comedy skits, kids’ videos and classic, foreign and family movies.
The Lagos-based company said: “Binge your favourite TV shows and movies on the 9tv app! On 9tv, the choice is all yours.”
The 9TV app is available on Google Play and the App Store for Apple devices.
9TV’s Timeshift feature on live TV allows users to watch their favourite programmes with pause, rewind and forward functionalities. Also, the Catch-Up feature enables users to watch programmes after they have been broadcast, or users who have missed a live broadcast will be able to view it on-demand.
“We are happy to be introducing this new entertainment platform for the delight of our subscribers. 9TV will offer unlimited relaxation with quality entertainment content at prices that they can afford,” said Kenechukwu Okonkwo, director of product innovation and business development at 9Mobile.
“9TV allows users to watch and also download their favourite movies, which they will be able to watch later under the ‘My Downloads’ feature on the app. The downloaded movies will be available to users to view whenever they want.”
