SKY Pacific is expected to start preparatory work for channel delivery and billing integration soon to enable the rollout of Sky Pacific subscriptions via Walesi later this year.

This has been made possible through a memorandum of understanding that was signed between Digicel founder and chairman and interim CEO Denis O’Brien and Walesi chairman Sharvada Sharma yesterday.

“We are all about connecting people to the things they love most.

“By distributing the Sky Pacific content and selected on-demand content on the Walesi platform, we will be able to offer a broader choice of the best content to Fijians — as well as multiple options for them to access their preferred content,” said Mr O’Brien.

“This is a milestone step for Walesi as we fully realise the potential of digital TV delivery in the country.

“Walesi will provide the necessary infrastructure to deliver Sky Pacific’s 25 TV channels via DTT and later on the same content will be available on smartphones also,” said Mr Sharma.
