The season is upon us once again. The year is about to end and the parties have started rolling out.
MultiChoice Uganda, the mother company of DStv, hosted journalists to a special end-of-year party at Mantra restaurant last Thursday. Before the partying started, Bryan Muwonge, DStv Uganda’s marketing manager, assured journalists that they would stay ahead of the game.
“MutliChoice is constantly watching the international and local dynamics and innovating to ensure we remain at the forefront of new technology and trends,” he said.
“The company has always been keenly aware of the combined responsibility it has to its stakeholders, customers, shareholders, media and the government.” He emphasised the company’s role in digitalising television and keeping the citizens informed and entertained.
The party also marked the launch of DStv Africa Trending, an interactive platform for viewers all over the continent.
Launching the online interactive session, Tina Wamala, the company’s PR and communications manager, said: “This celebration is the first of many to come and through such interactions, we hope to interface with our customers, get live feedback regarding programming and content on our platform in order to improve service offering and ensure customer satisfaction.”
She also revealed that a mobile application “DStv Now App” was now available for DStv Premium subscribers with a PVR or Explora decoder across Africa to watch Live TV, enjoy DStv Catch Up and view the TV Guide from their mobile phones and tablets.
With the serious business out of the way, it was time to network and celebrate the year’s success, thanks to the open bar that had the drinks flowing nonstop as the sumptuous buffet was served.
