Grenadians could very well have the choice of subscribing to a new entertainment package before the end of the year that will be provided by telecommunications provider, LIME.
LIME TV, which is already available in some Caribbean islands, will soon extend to the Spice Isle offering a package of news, sports, and entertainment.
This was disclosed by LIME’s local General Manager, Angus Steele who was updating the media on developments during the company’s quarterly press conference at its Mt. Hartman location last week Wednesday.
According to Steele the company is committed to introducing the television service under the “E”, entertainment in LIME.
“It’s an exciting time for us with the testing of this new product. We can proudly say that all of our content is legal and it is a complete English feed that our customers will be receiving”, he said.
“We have over 120 channels available covering movies, music, sports, news, home and garden, food, comedy and more. The product has already been successfully rolled out in fellow LIME territories such as Barbados and Cayman”, he added.
LIME TV is currently in trial phase in Grenada in order to help the company to understand some of the challenges to be faced in delivering the entertainment package throughout the island.
According to Steele, about 20 persons are
already engaged in the trial run of LIME TV, which utilizes the company’s broadband internet network.
“We expect our service to be of a higher quality and a better off (vale) to the public,” he said.
The press conference was also graced with the presence of the LIME-contracted soca artiste, Tallpree who recently returned home from performing at the 2013 Soca Monarch finals in T&T.
Tallpree shared some of his experiences at the Soca Monarch and also at Dominica’s Creole in the Park festival and Carnival held last month.
The popular soca artiste was invited back by LIME Dominica to perform at their Monday Band on Carnival Monday after his outstanding performance at the Creole in the Park Festival held in October last year.
