Ethio Telecom Launches New Digital Entertainment Services 

Ethio Telecom has been extensively involved in setting up customer-driven digital solutions and inclusive platforms to empower the Ethiopian entertainment industry and ensure the availability, quality, and reliability of telecom services. They aim to create a conducive and enabling environment for the content industry to encourage creativity and directly distribute content to the audience, enabling them to earn reasonable and deserved pay.

The company has launched new digital entertainment applications that will play a key role in digitalizing and revolutionizing the nation’s entertainment industry. These applications will bridge the digital engagement gap, provide data-driven value additions to empower the creative industry, offer easy payment and access channels, ensure a single subscription with attractive data bundles, and make supporting technology and marketing resources available. This will empower users’ creativity, expand their mental horizons, acquire new knowledge, and heal their souls with the contents provided with partners.

Four value-added services were launched today, including IPTV/OTT video streaming service, which provides customers with a variety of content ranging from live TV programs, drama, series movies to various premium videos. Customers can subscribe to the service by sending OK to 9433 or subscribing through Habeshaview Mobile App/Web, settling the payment via telebirr and easily accessing the service on their mobile, TV, and computers over the internet.

Sewasew Music Streaming is another value-added service that brings music fans a unique digital experience. It allows them to connect with local and international modern and classical music artists in one place. With high-quality streaming and affordable pricing, music lovers can enjoy unlimited online and offline songs. Users can choose their preferred songs as their caller ring back tone (CRBT). Customers can subscribe to the service via the Telebirr SuperApp or by sending “A” or “B” to 9107 for daily and weekly packages.

Two new mobile games, Telegames Appland, and Telewin, have also been launched. These games offer a wide variety of options for both adults and kids to download and play unlimited games at an affordable price, with no ads, in-app purchases, or viruses. Customers can access Telegames by sending “OK” to 927 or logging in to the Telegames mobile portal to select their preferred games and start playing. Customers can also subscribe to daily or weekly packages for Telewin games via web, SMS, or dialing *985# to play leisure games with the possibility of winning attractive prizes. These two new games are part of the company’s commitment to providing customers with exciting, affordable, and high-quality digital entertainment options.

The company is committed to meeting its customers’ digital value-added service demands, particularly in bridging the digital engagement gaps and ensuring content inclusions that will bring superior customer satisfaction and meaningful positive impacts on their esteemed customers.
