Airtel TV – how Airtel customers can watch TV channels, videos without a subscription

Watching premium TV channels such as BBC without a subscription? Now that’s something worth being excited about and Airtel Kenya customers might have just got their silver lining. Safaricom subscribers can brag about MPESA but getting something for free, ideally for just being a customer is something that doesn’t happen quite often.

There are of course several online streaming apps you could install on your device such as Showmax, Netflix and many more, but something they lag behind Airtel Kenya’s service is cost. It’s therefore interesting to see just how much the mobile service provider will gain from the service.

Something worth noting, this is not the first time Airtel has ventured in the entertainment industry, such streaming services have long been available from its home country India for several years now. But sone point that makes the company uniquely poised to gather unprecedented gain from the launch is it’s the first company to premier such a service in the country in its niche.

What you’ll get from the Airtel TV app

Customers are poised to access entertainment content ranging from several genres such as Movies, Drama, Documentaries, Music and Cartoons. Content coming from award winning studios such as Universal, Nickelodeon and the BBC will be available to any Airtel customer without a monthly subscription as is the case with current providers.

Speaking on the launch, Airtel Networks Kenya Ltd CEO Prasanta Das Sarma expressed his excitement saying the service was positioned to revolutionize video on demand and Live TV viewing experience on smartphones here in Kenya. Sarma further said the company was dedicated to offering Airtel customers access to the very best shows, movies and live television engagements for free.

Content on the app will include; Drama, Romance, Action, Comedy, Music, Faith/Religion, Health/Fitness, Kids and Documentaries.
