Catch the Olympics LIVE on DStv Mobile



As countries around the world hold their breath in anticipation of the Olympics, DStv Mobile is making sure fans will be able to enjoy each and every “goosebump” moment from 27 July right up until 12 August 2012. DStv Mobile recently dropped subscription prices across all bouquets: DVB-H enabled handsets Maxi bouquet – current price: GHS4.20 per week, reduced price: GHC2 per week. Mini bouquet – current price: GHC1.70 per week, reduced price: GHC1.50 per week. Drifta, Drifta USB and the Walka Handheld TV Maxi bouquet – current price: GHC19 per month, reduced to GHC8 per month. Mini bouquet – current price:  GHC8 per month, reduced to GHC6 per month. All of DStv Mobile’s devices make use of Digital Video Broadcast Handheld (DVB-H), with coverage available in the Greater Accra area “Perhaps the best news for fans is that we’ve geared our bouquets towards the Olympics for the entire duration of the event,” says Edward, “SuperSport 3 is already available to Premium subscribers on the Maxi Plus bouquet, with SuperSport 4 (SuperSport Gold) replacing Channel O on the Maxi and Maxi Plus bouquets for the duration of the Olympics. Select Sports will make way for SuperSport 5 (SuperSport Silver) on the Mini, Maxi and Maxi Plus for this period. This means that subscribers will be able to live the magic of the games from beginning to end: cheering on our country’s team of three track and field athletes, four boxers, a judoka and a weightlifter.” With athletes from across the globe already gathered in London for the official opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, DStv Mobile will be bringing its subscribers all of the nail-biting action as it happens over the next three weeks. “The Olympics celebrates the very essence of sport – skill, strength, stamina, courage and sportsmanship,” says Edward Kwame Owusu, Country Manager DStv Mobile Ghana. “This makes it a thrilling and inspiring event for us to share with customers through our various channel offerings, as we deliver on our promise of ‘TV anywhere, anytime’.” While the live action from London will take place when viewers are at work, Edward explains that DStv Mobile’s innovative devices provide the ideal solution for fans: “DStv Mobile’s offering and devices have been designed to complement busy lifestyles – making it possible for everyone to enjoy some of their favourite DStv channels ‘on the go’. Our range of pocket-sized devices additionally speaks to individual customer needs and budgets, giving one the option of owning a portable decoder or a standalone TV.” Accessing DStv Mobile’s services simply involves purchasing any of its small, sleek devices. “The Drifta and Drifta USB function as portable decoders, transforming select iOS (iPod, iPad), Android (Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy SIII) and Apple devices, as well as PCs and laptops, into portable TV sets. Those customers who prefer watching on their own standalone TV can do so using the Walka: a handheld TV that’s approximately 9cm in size,” says Edward. One also doesn’t have to be a DStv subscriber to access DStv Mobile, “It’s just a case of purchasing a device and then subscribing to one of the bouquet options available from Ghc 1.5 per week,” Edward adds, noting that DStv Premium subscribers can enjoy DStv Mobile’s services at no extra cost. If you’re not yet enjoying all the benefits of DStv Mobile, Kwame recommends visiting your nearest DStv Mobile retailer “This year’s Olympics promises a feast of memorable moments – inspiring, nerve-racking and, no doubt, heart-wrenching. If your ticket to London isn’t already booked, then we’d recommend visiting and securing the next best thing: your front row seat to all of the action courtesy of DStv Mobile.”]]>
