E-Vision launches eView pay-per-view service
E-Vision, the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s digital cable TV provider, has initiated eView, a new pay per view service, which features blockbuster movies in digital quality picture and sound.
An interactive television service, eView allows customers to order a movie or an event from a scheduled list for a small fee. The movies available on eView will be from the latest Western and Hindi/Asian releases that are yet to appear on pay TV services, according to a company press release. Arabic titles will be added in the near future.
Movies available on e-View start at different times on several dedicated channels. New titles will be added every Wednesday. Customers can pay for eView service by purchasing tokens either on their credit card by calling the customer service or paying cash at E-Vision offices.
Western and Arabic movies will be available for viewing for 14 Emirati dirhams while Hindi and Asian movies will be available for seven Dh. e-View will also bring special musical concerts and sports events such as cricket, boxing, and wrestling in the near future. The prices of such events differ.
For the first time in the region, the digital video broadcasting technology (DVB) will provide viewers the option of having the Arabic subtitling switched on and off on English and Hindi movies.
E-Vision comprises 110 channels, including movies, sports, news and entertainment, that cater to the UAE population. E-Vision’s Basic Package of over 75 channels is offered for Dh50 per month. E-Vision is currently available in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. — (menareport.com)
