MTN Nigeria Launches First Disney Mobile Web Service in Nigeria
MTN Nigeria has recorded another first as a leading ICT company with the launch of Disney mobile web service in Nigeria, Disneynigeria.mobi, loaded with Disney-themed short-form content, games and shareables. The service is the result of a collaboration between MTN Nigeria and The Walt Disney Company Africa. The two-year deal grants MTN Nigeria exclusivity for the first year of the collaboration.
The mobile web service was launched amidst fanfare on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at MTN Nigeria Headquarters, Ikoyi, Lagos, after thorough test trials to ensure hitch-free experience for the intended audience.
For N200 per month, Disney Nigeria opens a world of Disney – including short videos, wallpapers, Disney film and channel information and trailers, as well as select downloadables and much more – to MTN Nigeria users and their families.
Exciting new content will be updated on the site every month and users will experience fresh content including games like Frozen Double Trouble, Gravity Falls and Mabel; wallpapers from fan favourite shows and short films like Cars Toons or the popular Pixar Shorts; great recipes, arts and crafts, movie highlights and so much more, tailor-made to delight the family. To access the site, users with both feature and smartphones can visit Disneynigeria.mobi and follow the instructions. They will also be able to save a launcher app straight onto their mobile device for easy access to the site. Up to five devices can be added to one subscription, giving the entire family access to Disneynigeria.mobi.
Speaking at the launch event, General Manager, Brands and Communication, MTN Nigeria, Richard Iweanoge stated, “As a company, we have always searched for creative avenues for our customers to express their individuality and passion. And we know that this service achieves that and more. We are presenting a world of Disney straight to our customers’ fingertips at a truly affordable price, and we are confident of the fulfilling entertainment they will derive from this.”
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with MTN to give its Nigerian users access to Disneynigeria.mobi,” says Christine Service, Senior Vice President of The Walt Disney Company Africa. “Specifically developed for the Nigerian market, this will introduce MTN subscribers to Disney characters and content in an affordable and accessible way,” she added.
