Omantel introduced IPTV service

Omantel launched a TV service which will allow subscribers view their favourite television shows and movies in 3D and HD using Internet protocol. Subscribers of Omantel TV+ will receive a decoder which will allow them to easily record their favourite shows or movies for future playback, in addition to watching premium and free to air channels and movies. Simultaneous watch and record features are also included, and subscribers will be able to browse other channels and search for shows while they watch their favourite channel.

In his comments, Talal al Mamari, CEO of Omantel declared: “Enabling digital smart home services is part of our broader digital strategy, a key area of growth in the years ahead. Our new strategy goes beyond the rollout of Omantel TV+ across Oman, and indeed touches every aspect of our operational approach, both for retail consumers and corporate clients. We aim to bridge the digital divide across all sectors of society and pioneer the rollout of the digital home eco-system.”

“We’re expecting Omantel TV+ to be extremely popular with our customers, and our subscription packages offer the best selection of news, sports, entertainment and the latest movies, with more than 450 popular TV channels from around the world, including premium ones such as Nat Geo, Fox, MBC and Al Jazeera (initially at the Al Mouj Muscat, Muscat Hills, Ma’abela and Al Khoudh) in addition to more than 1,100 movies and 3,500 series. With that we can proudly say Omantel TV+ is your one-stop entertainment choice,” said Haitham al Kharusi, VP, Business Consumer Unit.
