Drifta is here – a really cool and fascinating tool. It is a mobile decoder from DStv Mobile that enables Nigerian customers and other African citizens to watch television without the problem of location. Right now, if you are a TV junkie, you can watch TV on the go – anytime and anywhere. Of course anywhere does not mean that DStv covers the whole of Nigeria or the continent. Right now, only selected big cities are allowed.
The cities include Port Harcourt, Abuja, Lagos, Onitsha, Aba, Kaduna, Enugu, Asaba, among others. Drfita is available only in DStv Mobile network coverage areas. The covered areas will enjoy unlimited access to the DStv Mobile DVB-H Network. Drifta costs N14, 700 and can be activated online in the DStv website or their nationwide offices.
It is truly in the nature of DStv brand to release these customer focused products one after another. It began with HD decoders, and DStv mobile. That has been the core of their strategy and no one seems to be coming close to dislodging them in this market. Understanding the need for innovation and executing the plan when conceived was the focus of the statements the company representatives released to the press on the launching of Drifta.
The MD of Multichoice, Joseph Hundah, and GM of DStv Mobile, Mayo Okunola, both exprressed what drive this innovative culture of this company in two separate statements:
The development and introduction of the new technology is key to ensuring that DStv subscribers get more enjoyment and control of their television viewing – this always remains at the core of the company’s mission and vision”, said Joseph Hundah
I am thrilled to be able to offer DStv Premium subscribers such as exciting value added option. While non-DStv subscribers can also purchase a Drifta and subscribe to one of three bouquets – the Free bouquet, the Mini and the Maxi bouquet, DStv Premium subscribers on the hand will have access to the Maxi Plus bouquet at absolutely no additional charge after paying only for the Drifta hardware.
Let the shows start, now there is no more distance to hold us, because TV is now mobile.
