Jamaica joins the Digital technology revolution with the roll out of DISL’s Ready TV, which is well underway and should be up and running by the first quarter of 2017.
Digital Interactive Services, DISL, is a privately owned Jamaican company, founded by Chris Dehring and David Cassanova; Dehring will lead the operations as President and CEO.
The company has been granted an island-wide Special Subscriber Television Licence issued by the Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica. This special licence will allow it to use both wired and wireless technology to deliver multiple television channels to its customers across Jamaica.
The company will employ the latest in digital technology to offer 200 entertainment, informational and educational channels. Ready TV, under the DISL umbrella, operates from headquarters in New Kingston, Jamaica.
DISL and Mayberry – A Match made in Investment Heaven
In an effort to complete this phased launch, Digital Interactive Services Limited (DISL) retained the services of investment bank, Mayberry Investments Limited. In a deal signed between the two, Mayberry will now act as the company’s lead financial advisor.
CEO of Mayberry, Gary Peart, was equally excited with the partnership, quote: “we are excited about the opportunity to work with yet another cutting edge company poised to change the dynamics of its market. We look forward to another successful transaction and the opportunities this company will present to investors, customers and other stakeholders alike”.
Ready TV affordable to all Jamaicans – Revolution to be televised in the Q1 of 2017
The focus of the company’s offering will be Ready TV, which is a television service that will give Jamaicans the opportunity to experience a new way of accessing cable television with the aim of far reaching affordability.
Dehring is upbeat about the launch of Ready TV, and cannot wait to give Jamaicans real choice and value, quote: “TV when YOU ready, defines the Brand’s promise to its customers: to deliver convenient, reliable and affordable television and radio content to its subscribers. It is ‘cable’ television when and how customers want it, not the other way around”.
“It is a revolutionary television service that will give ALL Jamaicans the opportunity to experience what is considered a privilege to some and thought unattainable by most. We want to ensure that we really penetrate the masses of those who cannot afford regular cable”.
Ready TV, when it launches in the first quarter of 2017, will be cable TV for all!
