Glo NG has launched two new services, which are Glo Sharp Sharp E-Top up and Glo Café. These services were recently announced by GLO, and they somehow works together. I will quickly explain both here in this article.
Glo Sharp Sharp E-top-up gives customers 8 times the value recharged when they recharge from any electronic channels like Glo Café, Automated Teller Machines (ATM) and Point Of Sale terminals etc. For instance, if you recharge with N201, you will get over N1,601 made up of N201 in your main account, N100 bonus airtime for calls to all networks and N900 bonus airtime to call other Glo subscribers. This is really a great value for money if you ask me.
However, customers will receive 50MB data bonus for personal use and extra 25MB data, which can be gifted to another Glo customer, interesting huh?
Glo Café on its own, offers world class games including Gameloft; thousands of movies and video content, two million songs including 10,000 music videos, jokes, sports, entertainment and e-commerce services.
One interesting thing added to the Glo café is Glo Live Cast, where Globacom as the first operator to launch Mobile TV (Glo live cast) in Nigeria. This gives its subscribers the opportunity to watch live local TV channels (such as NTA, AIT, WAP TV, etc.) with HD quality streaming on their Glo mobile phones.
But wait a minute, how can we actually watch a movie, not to talk of HD quality movie via Glo mobile TV with their poor data network? I’m still wondering if it will be possible. Even if it’s possible, we can’t stream conveniently without buffering every seconds.
E-top up bonus is valid for 7 days and it can be used at anytime to call and text (Glo to Glo lines) before it expires. You can check your bonus balance by dialing #122#.
Meanwhile, Glo Café app can be downloaded from playstore. The question is, can we actually watch mobile tv on this slow glo network?
