Joining the fierce competition for World Cup audiences, Colombian mobile operator Tigo has announced a premium HD, multi-camera, mobile service for its LTE customers.
The service, which is already available on Tigo's website, will be available from 12 June to 13 July via an app for iOS and Android. With an extra price depending on the subscribed LTE package, customers will have access to the 64 matches shown live, as well as a social TV platform.
Although it won't be necessary to be connected to the LTE network to watch the matches - it works via Wi-Fi in case there is no good 4G coverage - the premium app will be only available for Tigo subscribers in those cities where the LTE packages are offered, namely Bogotá, Barranquilla, Medellín, Bucaramanga and Santa María. The service has a maximum capacity of 4,000 viewers per match.
