She said Airtel TV is available to download on the Apple iOS store and Google Playstore for android and is also already embedded on the Airtel mobile App.
“In addition to offering an extensive selection of local, Bollywood and Nollywood content for starters, Airtel TV comes with a range of features that will enhance your viewing experience.
“You can create your personalised watchlist, switch streaming resolution options according to your data plan, and even share videos with friends and family,” Sande said.
