This WOWtime app is first of its kind in Nepal but another similar app like NetTV is already there from some time. NetTV is already streaming TV channels (IPTV) with Fiber to the home technology in private ISP and there are also some packages with Ncell to watch the videos in hourly basis. The TV packages of Ncell in NetTV did not go well. Let’s see how this new video streaming app in Ntc goes. It all depends on the quality, content, speed of the video service and not forgetting the cost for watching the videos. But for now, you can enjoy the videos streaming for free.
Earlier, Ntc had talked about this sort of application for video streaming service. Now, they have powered this app to bring the OTT service to Nepalese customers. We have already heard about Ncell’s video streaming service in the making but we don’t know when it is going to release. We may expect it to release in the upcoming festivals.
