#Realtime is a revolutionary broadcast service using High Definition (HD) and convergence technology to connect viewers with live-events as they happen. By convergence, we mean delivering high-resolution live event content simultaneously to television and on a dedicated online platform in real time.
As major entertainment events all year round continue to physically attract audience to venues for a live viewing experience, a huge percentage of the population particularly in Nigeria, are unconsciously excluded from these events. Eyeballs are missed. The ‘excluded’ audience become dependent on mostly post-event news reports, social media posts or a scheduled broadcast time to finally engage with a somewhat delayed experience.
The good news is #Realtime service offers the viewing audience best of all worlds. Viewers can now watch live-events from the comfort of their homes or while on-the-go. Simply speaking, audience no longer have to wait. The content is broadcast to the viewer instantly from the events’ venue to the screen in real time.
The #Realtime service is changing the way we consume entertainment content offering a dynamic approach to Primetime television viewing at weekends, between 7pm and 10pm on HipTv and www.realtime.ng.com, including associate broadcast partners.
