MTN Ghana has launched its DSTV mobile at an impressive ceremony at Rhapsody’s in the Accra Mall.

DSTV mobile from MTN will make it possible for MTN customers to tune in to their favorite DSTV channels on their mobile handsets, which is in collaboration with MTN, DMTV and Nokia.

With DSTV mobile, an 11-channel bouquet is available including Africa Magic, Super Sport, Cartoon Network, BBC and CNN, which were only accessible through television sets, can now be easily accessed by MTN customers in Accra & Tema on their mobile phones.

The Chief Marketing Officer of MTN, George Andah, said MTN is committed to serving the needs of its cherished subscribers regardless of their locations. “We do not rest on our laurels as we strive to provide nothing less than the best products and services.”

He added that with just 12 months to the kick off of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, subscribers will be able to watch all the exciting matches, and stories making the World Cup headlines through their DSTV mobile.

He noted that “in an era where it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to get home on time to watch their favorite programmes on television, DSTV mobile from MTN comes as a big relief to give MTN customers access to TV programs everywhere , anywhere, anytime, right on their phone.”

He said MTN will continue to bring excitement to the lives of its subscribers.

The Minister of Information, Mrs. Zita Okaikoi in her address stated that the growth of the telecommunication industry in recent times has been phenomenal as it has also witnessed improved service delivery due to active and healthy competition within the sector.

She said, “MTN today is not only offering employment to the many qualified youth in our country but also significantly, their contribution to tax, sponsorship of programmes and adherence to their social obligations are of enormous relief to government.”

She indicated that while it is the commitment of government to guarantee a congenial environment for the investor to get the worth of his or her investment, government is equally determined not to compromise on customer satisfaction.

“In the light of this we will urge players in the telecommunication industry to do more to guarantee customers’ fulfillment and also put in place effective mechanisms to monitor customer feedback for onward action.”

Present at the launch was the Minister of Communication, Haruna Iddrisu, some members of the parliamentary select committee on Communications and other government functionaries.
