​Affordable TV for Chimbu

The product was officially launched on Tuesday, July 12, by the Governor of Chimbu Province, Noah Kool.

The official launch of the tower transmission was held at the TNA Supermarket, Digicel Play’s new retail outlet in Kundiawa town. Crowds gathered to witness the opening by the Governor and his Deputy Governor James Kendyagl, Digicel Goroka general manager Peter Chromiec and Simbu local SP PNG Hunters player Nickson Borana.

​Digicel Play strikes a move with local dance competition

The competition, which will run for eight weeks from Saturday, July 9, to Saturday, September 3, provides an opportunity for young hip-hop dancers to showcase their passion and love for the art of urban street dancing in Port Moresby.

Digicel Play CEO Nico Meyer said he was thrilled to team up with The Cosmopolitan to broadcast the talent of young people across the country.

Paramount Joins Digicel Play

Boasting a rich catalogue of movies, Paramount’s film library features everything from box office blockbusters to classic films from the golden age of Hollywood.

The Paramount channel was launched in Spain in early 2012 and has steadily spread around the world, with Papua New Guinea one of the first Pacific nations to welcome the popular new channel.

Digicel Play CEO, Nico Meyer said this new channel will have something for every member of the family.

New dish to help Digicel play users

The two new dishes including one portable and the other a permanent satellite dish are more powerful than the previous dishes.

The 60cm portable dish now half the size of the previous one is much more convenient for local subscribers to purchase and install.

For the newly installed 7.8m Satellite dish which will replace the 3m dish, it will help cover the whole of the Pacific and hence, that satellite will make PNG become a broadcast hub for the Pacific.

Digicel Play’s new satellite dishes, to boost TV viewing

Digicel Play has installed two new satellite dishes at its Gordons headquarters in Port Moresby, as well as a new television studio which will broadcast local content to PNG residents. 

The two dishes, which have taken 18-months to design and develop, will boost coverage of Digicel Play throughout PNG and the wider Pacific region including Fiji, Nauru and Tonga.

Digicel Play CEO, Nico Myer, said the installation of the two satellite dishes was a huge milestone for the broadcaster.
