SS Network (SSNET) has begun providing cable TV service to over 90 islands across Maldives, less than two months after the company received its rebroadcasting license.
SSNET received its rebroadcasting license on December 1, 2022; a license which authorizes the company to provide nationwide cable TV service.
SSNET’s Chief Operating Officer Mohamed Asif (Mondhu) said SSNET is providing its service through Dhiraagu’s modern IPTV and OTT network.
Thousands of DhiraaguTV’s customers have switched to SSNET, and are now enjoying its cable TV service.
“The opportunity remains open for customers who had been using DhiraaguTV to register to SSNET with ease,” said Mondhu.
Customers who had used DhiraaguTV do not need to pay an additional fee to make the switch, and can continue to use their set-top box.
Mondhu said that the company is ironing out minor issues with the launch of the new service, which he assured will be resolved within two days.
Dhiraagu’s CEO and Managing Director Ismail Rasheed and SSNET’s Managing Director Zuleykha Manik (Zuley) had signed the agreement which allows SSNET to provide nationwide cable TV coverage using Dhiraagu’s IPTV and OTT network on December 23, 2022.
Mondhu said the launch of SSNET’s service will revolutionize the local cable TV sector, and bring great changes in terms of content.
He said that SSNET aims to provide customers an unparalleled entertainment experience and to “make them smile”.
“We aim to provide them with a happy escape from all the mental distress. SSNET will help build this nation,” he said.
