Qotto Benin, a solar home system provider, has entered into a partnership with Canal+, a French company specialised in the distribution of payTV channels. The partnership wills ee both companies distribute Mivoo+ kit, along with decoders, satellite dishes and the promise of a “special package” for customers.
Qotto Benin launched the “Mivoo” solar kit earlier this year in August, and the kit will now be associated with the various Canal+ products. The system consists of a 100 W solar panel, two 480 Wh batteries, three LED bulbs and USB ports for recharging mobile phones. The “Mivoo” kit will be accompanied by a 22-inch television set, a Canal+ decoder and a satellite dish. The agreement will allow the population to obtain a three-year subscription to a “special” Canal+ package of 175 TV and radio channels.
However, the “Mivoo +” kit, a new offer from Qotto Benin and Canal+ will be available from December 2020. The solar home systems provider will use pay-as-you-go (pay-per-use) to facilitate the distribution of the “Mivoo +” kit to households in rural, peri-urban and urban areas.
The service will help connect more remote communities to satellite television across the various locations served by the partners across Africa.
