100 more Swaziland buses getting TV service
Published on 26th June 2014
Televisions are planned to be connected to 100 more buses in Swaziland.
This is according to LGR Telecommunications, which last year helped launched the free-to-air ‘Mobilize Transit TV’ network to 50 buses carrying TV sets in Swaziland’s main metropolitan areas.
LGR says its StarCare mobile self-service application is simplifying the management of the Mobilize Transit TV service in the landlocked African country.
Mobilize’s TV units are specially designed for use in vehicles, and use 3G connections to automatically download media playlists when the buses are switched on.
“These prepaid SIM cards are centrally managed at the Mobilize Transit TV offices using MTN Mobile SelfCare solution, powered by LGR StarCare,” says a statement from LGR.
“MTN Mobile SelfCare allows Mobilize Transit TV to easily view airtime and data account balances on each SIM card, recharge airtime and data bundles for each SIM card and view additional subscriber attributes for each subscriber, including service class and expiry date. Deployed via either mobile app stores or web interface, SelfCare is enabling simple, efficient management of a growing pool of connected transit TVs,” says the company.
