STC launches Invision TV service in 9 cities
Riyadh, April 11, 2011
Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has expanded its Invision interactive television service to nine more cities including Makkah Al Mukkaramah, Al Madinah Al Munawarrah, Abha, Buraidah, Onaiza, Jizan, Taif, Jubail and Al Ihsaa.
Previously Invision was available only in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dammam.
Invision utilises interactive technology to provide high definition via Internet connection with high speeds up to 20 Mb per second plus free calls to land line numbers in the kingdom, all on one bill.
With the Invision service, STC’s Afaq DSL Shamil customers can enjoy visual content through satellite TV channels featuring sports, cultural and documentary programs and videos on the TV screen.
The service is unique in that it offers exclusive viewing of paid TV categories including Al Majd, Al Jazeera Sports and Abu Dhabi Sports with high quality images thanks to the Invision device that eliminates the need for other receivers, dishes or even extensions.
In addition to the most important sports events such as the Premier League, Spanish and Italian leagues, Invision provides comprehensive coverage of events and developments in countries across the region, as well as cultural subjects, documentary films and many programs that are popular favourites.
Among the many unique benefits, the service enables customers to pause a program and continue viewing it later on, watch re-runs, and record programs to watch at any time. Invision also serves as a video on demand library from which religious programs, documentaries and famous movies can be downloaded and viewed as required.-TradeArabia News Service
