Startimes Unveils a new decoder-free smartphone APP
In this digital age, digital decoders are key to access any free to air or Paid channels in Uganda. Well, this could be no more with Startimes’s new app packaged as Startimes ON available on the Google Play and Apple stores, allowing everyone to watch online videos or live streamed content without a decoder
Popular local FTA channels like Bukedde, NTV,NBS are some of the stations already shipped to the new Startimes app, while Football fans can further enjoy StarTimes Uganda Premier League, Bundesliga, French League 1 and other sports like boxing, rugby, basketball, cricket on the Sports premium, world football, and sports life channels.
However, Startimes officials so far not inked any direct modes of payment whether it can further be shared with an existing decoder package or preloaded through mobile money, though the company’s assistant marketing lead promised more diverse content on the platform
“More excellent international and local channels will be put online, and diverse and rich contents will always be the core of StarTimes ON service.” Aldrine Nsubuga Snr Vice President in charge of marketing said
Although Startimes already had an official app for smartphones, this new app seems to be targeting smartphone users who don’t have time to face a TV screen. Nonetheless, the new Startimes On app now joins the likes of Kwese iflix which previously launched as a partnership with MTN before opting for a 2nd hand from Airtel and the decoder based DSTV app as some of the digital Tv solutions utilizing a fast-paced smartphones generation.
