Building on the ongoing success of the Drifta, Drifta USB and Walka, DStv Mobile, a paid Mobile TV company has announced the launch of the iDrifta and Walka 7, which is an addition to its range of devices.
According to the General Manager, DStv Mobile Nigeria, Mr. Mayo Okunola, “The iDrifta is a plug and play mobile DVB-H receiver specifically designed for Apple mobile devices. It is portable and lightweight, and will allow users with Apple devices to enjoy the great entertainment.”
Compatible with the iPod 4th generation, iPhone and iPad, the iDrifta is simple and intuitive to use.
“After plugging it into your iOS device, the iDrifta device redirects the user directly to the DStv Mobile application on the apple store and the user only needs to download it for free to start watching their favourite programmes .This means that viewers with Apple mobile devices can now access our full range of channels anywhere, anytime,” Okunola said
He explained that the company would continue to inspire, entertain and delight its subscribers, with latest world-class devices.
“The fact that Apple’s mobile devices are so popular, and that subscribers using these platforms will now be able to access our offering, makes this launch even more exciting for our brand, he added”
The iDrifta will retail at the recommended price of N9, 500.
In addition to the iDrifta, DStv Mobile revealed the Walka 7, launching first in Nigeria. The Walka 7 is a complete portable television with enhanced visual quality and no other device is required to view.
“The move to launch in Nigeria first was to satisfy the growing appetite for mobile TV in the Nigerian market,” Okunola said.
The device comes in a 7inch viewing screen that can be customised through 4 aspect ratio settings to optimise the viewing experience. In addition the Walka 7 has a battery life of 6 hours and audio is delivered via 2, 1.5 watt speakers. The Walka 7 recommended retail price is N18, 900.
