MTN Zambia releases MTN TV+ app with free trial

Your probably did or didn’t get the message from MTN letting you now about their new app, MTN TV+ that gives you access to stream TV channels as bundled packages.

You’ll find these channels; 4syte TV, Africa Unite TV, QTV, BT Sports 1, BT sports 2, Al Jazeera, France 24, RT, MovieLax, ASBC Series, La Pearl, AfroGold Movies, Afrostar TV, Smile, Bubble Toons, Family TV, Calvary TV and Praise TV.

MTN has shared that the bundle subscription fees will be as follows

  • Hourly Pack – K2.5
  • Daily Pack – K10
  • Weekly Pack – K30
  • Monthly Pack – K50

I have been using it for a few days now and I noticed some channels have a programme schedule while others don’t so it would be nice if they all did. Regards interface, I think they stuck to the KISS rule of anything – Keep It Short and Simple – short in the sense that there’s not too much cluttered detail in the channel list and simple in terms of graphics, tabs and buttons.

Some of the reviews of the app within the Playstore have been that the app buffers, but I think that’s more a connectivity issue on the part of different users as mine worked just fine after the initial load.

If you download the MTN TV+ app today you have free access to watch the channels until the 8th of August 2017 without your data being depleted, as their text shared:

The MTN TV+ is available from the Google Playstore here. You can also get it by texting ‘TV’ to 5555.

Update: MTN has extended the free trial to 9th August 2017 after which the subscription rates will be:

  • Monthly pack K100
  • Weekly pack K35
  • Daily pack K10
  • Hourly (Once Off) K3
