In a bid to reduce the usage of heavy data in streaming movies especially in Nigeria where cost of data is still relatively high, Skye9tv, an online movie platform has launched its Skye9 Movies app.
Speaking during the launch of the app in Lagos, Ayo Odusolu, country manager, Skye9 said that Skye9 Movies app does not only provide users with excellent high definition clarity but also does so at very minimal data consumption.
Odusolu said the app is standing out completely because the organisation has taken into recognition the limitations current users are facing especially when it comes to data consumption and quality of content.
“Our hope is that this app will quickly become the movie-streaming platform of choice to Nigerian users and become the number one viewer’s choice destination on the African continent. Our rich cultural heritage represented adequately by the rapidly expanding Nollywood (3rd largest movie industry in the world) needs to be shown and made available to people on-the-go including movie lovers around the world.
“Skye9 Movies App will give viewers a plethora of exciting choices in accessing the much-desired Nollywood movies,” Odusolu said.
He explained that once people are subscribed members, they can access and stream unlimited amounts of premium content over the internet from their devices, adding that the picture quality while streaming movies and TV shows may vary from computer to computer and device to device.
“Picture quality may be affected by variety of other factors such as your location, the bandwidth available through and speed of your internet connection. Streaming in HD uses more bandwidth than streaming in standard definition. Please check with your internet provider for information on possible internet data coverage charges,as you are responsible for all internet access charges,” he added.
Odusolu assured that once subscribers log in their user details, they can instantly watch free premium movies as often as they want, adding that subscribers can only have access to trailers and short clips when they are not logged in. Businessday.
