The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (nbc) has unveiled its latest innovation, the nbc Plus App, which promises to revolutionise the way viewers and listeners access their favourite radio and television stations.
With just a click of a button, users can now enjoy seamless access to 11 radio stations and three TV stations, right at their fingertips.
The App offers users a wide range of options, allowing them to choose from 11 radio stations spanning various genres, including news, music, sports, and cultural programming. With a simple tap, listeners can tune in to their favourite shows, catch up on the latest news bulletins, or discover new music from local and international artists.
The launch held at Oshakati was attended by prominent figures from the broadcasting industry, government officials, and media enthusiasts. Speaking at the event, the Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Dr. Peya Mushelenga, said the launch of the nbc Plus App marks a significant milestone.
"Accessing national TV programmes far away was something only experienced by Namibian diplomats who have the necessary equipment. Now many Namibians will be able to access their national broadcaster programmes from different corners of the world. Having experienced the app during its pilot, I can confidently state that this technology stands as a paragon of innovation."
In addition to the radio stations, the nbc Plus App features three TV stations, providing viewers with an array of entertainment, educational, and informative content, ensuring that users never miss a moment of their preferred TV programming. nbc's Director General Stanley Similo has implored telecommunications company leaders to improve their broadband, which is central to the usage of the app.
"Broadband must become a reality for the whole of the country because our IP connectivity for streaming is highly worth embedded if it's lagging behind; platforms like the nbc Plus will also not speak to that."
Similo added that the nbc continues to embrace digital advancements, with the nbc Plus App standing as testimony to the public broadcaster's dedication to delivering quality content.
