MTN, LG announce smart TV internet deal

26 November 2013, 13:02

Abuja - MTN Business, the business-to-business entity of MTN Nigeria, has reached an agreement with LG Electronics to bundle MTN broadband internet services with LG smart televisions sold locally.

The deal will culminate in customers buying the television sets given MTN HyNet, the 4G broadband internet service offered by MTN Business

Speaking on the partnership, Babatunde Osho, the chief enterprise solutions officer of MTN Nigeria, said with Smart TVs increasing in popularity, the need for a high-speed internet service, like MTN HyNet, to enable customers take advantage of the Smart TV technology, could not be overemphasised.

Osho said MTN Business would like to see more people enjoy the whole range of benefits, such as online movies and live streaming among others associated with Smart TVs and other smart devices.

Osho said the collaboration with LG further underpinned the role of MTN Business in leading the delivery of a bold, new digital world and in making lives a whole lot brighter.

Steve Ryu, the general manager of the home entertainment department of LG Electronics West Africa Operations, welcomed the partnership.

“This unique partnership is ultimately about meeting the needs of our customers in a bid to provide cutting edge technological products and services to them in comfort and style,” he said.

Ryu stated that with the LG Smart TV and MTN HyNet Internet service that comes with free 8GB data for 3 months, customers were bound to experience limitless online opportunities.

“We are convinced that this partnership will go a long way to create the best of relaxation and fun time for our customers in this yuletide season and beyond,” he said.
