The description of the app and usage conditions on the page reads:
“Airtel TV offers you unlimited access to the best TV channels and video-on-demand content from around the world. Airtel TV is available to only Airtel Africa subscribers. Subscription to the service comes at no cost to the user.”
Besides working only for Airtel users, it cannot be accessed using another network. For example, when using a Wi-Fi network that is not from Airtel, the app’s content cannot be accessed.
After successfully installing the app on your smart device, you are to provide the following details to start using Airtel TV:
- Your mobile number to verify and determine subscription detail for Airtel.
- Birthdate or age information to tailor content specifically for users.
- Name display in the profile inside the app.
- Email address to pass some information on product offers and support services.
Also, if you want to change profile details, access the profile from the menu tab from the top left corner of the screen. However, the contents on the app are not as rich as many viewers would like.
Users can access Nollywood and Bollywood movies as well as animated series and music videos. There is also access to live TV and sports series as well as sports channels.
We expect better content soon as we enjoy Airtel TV.
