YoTV unveils Redesigned YoTV App with More Entertainment Channels

YOTV Channels has today launched a new state of the art video streaming app. The new app expands its current offering from a few options to a large variety of live and video-on-demand content covering live TV channels, live radio stations, comedy, music, movies and so much more. As YOTV evolves into a super entertainment app, it has unveiled several new products including; Bolingo Extra that is all about Ugandan Music, Comedy & Reality Shows. Muto, a product designed for Kids’ edutainment (a creative mix of education and entertainment). Kibanda Express a Ugandan movies platform has been redesigned and given a better user interface and user experience. A new channel eMikolo (that showcases captivating events for the Ugandan audience) has also been introduced. Customers can now also access Kibanda Express without a running YOTV subscription to enable them to enjoy Ugandan Movies on the platform.

The launch of the new YOTV Channels app follows many months of hard work and considerable investment that has gone into development of new products and improved customer experience. This has involved setup of a dedicated data center which has boosted capacity for our customers to rewind and catch-up on missed live content up to 4 days in the past and while being able to record unlimited future content. The data center has also expanded concurrent usage capacity on the app that creates a smoother experience for users.

“YOTV app now has the largest collection of content that includes movies, live TV, live Radio, Music, Comedy, Motivational podcasts, Kids entertainment and much more.  Our local video-on-demand options are unrivalled. We couldn’t have done all this without our great partner MTN and of course our brilliant content creators. We are thus excited to engage with more content creators to walk with us this journey including musicians, filmmakers, comedians, and others” – said YOTV Channels Chief Executive Officer-Aggrey Mugisha.

As YOTV Channels continues to make new changes to improve the quality of offering, it has been deemed necessary to adjust the pricing structure upwards with immediate effect. The increase helps YOTV to sustain the commitment to providing the very best products and services to it’s customers. One hour of access has changed from UGX. 500 to UGX. 800. One day of access has changed from UGX. 1000 to UGX. 1500. One week of access has changed from UGX. 5000 to UGX. 7500. One month of access has changed from UGX. 10,000 to UGX. 20000. Please be assured that YOTV Channels has made every effort to keep this increase to a minimum.

YOTV Channels App was launched in February 2020 right at the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic phenomenon. While many companies collapsed due to the pandemic challenges, YOTV Channels weathered that storm has grown from strength to strength. Today is therefore also about celebrating loyal customers that have walked the journey so far and still going strong.

Susan Kayemba, the MTN Uganda Senior Manager for Digital services said that MTN’s partnership with YoTV is hinged on MTN’s mission to champion local content consumption by offering clients a seamless yet convenient and affordable platform.

“The potential of YOTV channels to take local content to the world is absolutely undebatable. With the newly unveiled products, we are optimistic that more people will enjoy more Ugandan content. As MTN, we are here to support Ugandan Innovations and YOTV is the epitome of this” said Kayemba.

Kayemba further noted that the YoTV subscription comes with data so customers enjoy more tv anytime, anywhere.

The MTN and YoTV partnership is underpinned by MTN’s commitment to leading digital innovations for Africa’s progress as enshrined in its Ambition 2025.
