After a long awaiting, CG NET is launching IPTV and Video OTT app soon in Nepal. Just a few months after starting its own broadband fiber network, now CG NET is setting its eyes upon video entertainment products with digital TV solutions. This is going to be possible in collaboration with an Indian telecom giant, as Airtel beta-launches its Airtel IQ Video.
Since its inception, CG NET has been disrupting the internet market in Nepal by providing a high-speed fiber network and exceptional customer experience at the lowest price possible. As the internet speed war among ISP grows intense, CG NET will probably heat up further by completing its fiber internet package with IPTV. After the addition of IPTV and Video OTT app, it will definitely add appeal to the already exciting services of CG NET.
According to Nirvana Chaudhary, Managing Director of CG Group, “We have aspirations to launch a cutting edge IPTV and Video OTT platform as part of our telco offering in Nepal. Airtel’s proven execution in video-based offerings with Airtel Xstream and keen understanding of a telecom company paved the way for our partnership. Airtel IQ Video will power both our Video OTT app and IPTV, bringing seamless streaming to our customers in Nepal on devices of their choice.”
