Digicel done with 8 million network customers get free upgrades and services

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 jul 2015 – Digicel is done, complete with its network rebuild and this week the company celebrated with a press conference to announce the re-launch. It is an $8 million dollar investment by the telecoms giant which explained that the project involved the installation of over 30km of fibre optic cable, 11km of coaxial cable and the doubling of its international bandwidth capacity – all of which, Digicel promises, will deliver an unbeatable, superfast broadband experience to homes and businesses across TCI, even during peak times. Digicel is no longer just a mobile service player in the market and shared that on the TV side, users will see that the upgrade equates to sharper, more consistent, reliable picture quality. Add to this, during that press conference held Wednesday at the Blue Haven Resort, TV users will have an easy to use electronic TV guide and a host of leading new channels. Digicel Play CEO, Erik Staaf said, “Today, we are confident that the customer experience on our newly rebuilt network is the best and most reliable in the TCI – making Digicel the home of the fastest internet and best TV service. I want to say a massive thank you to our loyal customers for their patience during this process – we hope they’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.” And Digicel is serious about that thank you with three months of free premium movies to TV subscribers and a free upgrade to its broadband customers.

SF Chronicle Launches 49ers Digital Magazine

first_imgThe San Francisco Chronicle launched its 49ers Insider digital magazine last week in advance of the team’s season-opener against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.The iPad-exclusive app will be published twice each week with a pregame edition released on Fridays and a postgame version coming the day after that week’s game. Content includes exclusive multimedia features, articles from the Chronicle’s sports section, player profiles, opponent scouting reports, fantasy football and betting advice, as well as social media integration.“When you research an audience of highly engaged sports enthusiasts, or highly engaged people who watch any particular NFL team like the 49ers, often the feedback that you get is ‘I want more information than I’m currently getting and I’m willing to pay for it,’” Adkins says. “The audience says they can’t get enough.”More specifically, Adkins says, it’s about providing information that isn’t readily available elsewhere. There will be some overlap between content in the Chronicle and on the app, but with several new staff members brought on specifically for the digital magazine, the focus is putting out exclusive stories. The nature of the NFL schedule—one game per team per week, usually on Sunday afternoons—lends itself to a unique publishing schedule as well. It allows Adkins’ team to capitalize on the market when it’s most hungry for that extra content.“Everybody has limited information right after the game. You basically know score, statistics and a couple of key elements that may have happened,” Adkins says. “But player interviews, coach interviews, those types of things start to trickle in after the game and they’re not immediately available. So we see a spike in web traffic, obviously, after the game, but we also see it on Monday when a lot of the coverage starts to come in.” At $9.99, the price works out to about 30 cents per issue for the full 16-game regular season.As a new product in a new market, Adkins admits his team is not entirely sure of the price elasticity yet, but emphasized that the project’s purpose at this stage was to build volume.“If you have no brand identity, the best thing to do would be to create what we thought [would be] a low enough price point that would drive a significant level of subscribers,” he says. “We decided that we wanted to try to build volume off of it.”For now, the app is only available on the iPad, but other platforms—for a bigger audience reach—may be supported by the end of the season.To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!last_img read more

Jesse Malins Meet Me At The End Of The World EP Track

first_imgNETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO Aug 5, 2017 – 5:18 pm Jesse Malin On Influences, Songwriting, New EP Track 1: “Meet Me At The End Of The World””‘Meet Me At The End Of The World'” came from listening to the news and hearing all these people talk about things I really acknowledge and believe in: global warming, what’s going on politically, what’s going on around the whole world. As always, with every generation, you feel like this is the end man: it’s the nuclear arms race, it’s Ronald Reagan, doomsday’s coming, “1984” — that play is more relevant now than ever. All these things are evil and there is a lot of evil, but you have to find a way to stay positive. I believe in the P.M.A., the Positive Mental Attitude, so ‘Meet Me At The End Of The World’ came from being inundated with all my friends that are pissed off about stuff. But you know what, you’ve got to live every day like it could be your last.Musically, the song was written with two chords at a soundcheck in Long Beach with Alejandro Escovedo and Derek Cruz, my guitarist, just jamming these two chords like the Stones or Bowie’s “Heroes” and I started to put a melody over it. … Then I finished it out in a van and me and Derek arranged it in a hotel room in Oakland.”Track 02: “Fox News Funk””It came from a jam that Derek had. It was kind of like a Clash, kind of Sandinista! thing. Again, [it was inspired by] the media blitz … and reading USA Today because it comes under the door, and realizing you don’t want to mix politics and music all the time — but life is political. You walk out your door and you’re hit with things. You have to pay for gasoline. You have to eat. You’ve got to pay rent. And [I thought about] how much the media is owned by the government, by the big corporations, so you’re not getting the full story. I think [this song is] a call to people to go beyond that, go with their guts and their hearts. You have got to treat the people around you with love, but you also have to question the powers that be, because as much as I love this country and this planet, there are some people that are out to line their own pockets and have an agenda.Track 3: “Revelations/Thirteen””‘Revelations’ is a song about a breakup that happened. I was dating a girl who had the same name as me, Jesse, and if we would have gotten married, she would have became Jesse Malin (laughs). … But we met one day to go have ‘the talk,’ like when you’ve got to break up with somebody and have the conversation, and we met at a health food restaurant — I’m a vegetarian — on East 12th Street in Manhattan called Angelica’s. I bumped into like Moby and Cyndi Lauper and John [Joseph] from the Cro-Mags there, and you know it’s just a a great spot, I wish it was still there. But [this song is] the anticipation of playing back that conversation in your head knowing you’ve got to have this talk, but after it’s done you know you’re going to be OK. And then we just went into “Thirteen” by Big Star, it’s just something that happened in the studio and we kept it. It’s one of my favorite Big Star songs.”Track 4: “London Rain””‘London Rain’ was written about our old merch girl and tour manager from the U.K. who was diagnosed with cancer and is paralyzed. She needed a wheelchair and she kept such a great outlook that we named her “The Positive Panther,” and we did a charity with Butch Walker, Joan Jett, the Eagles Of Death Metal guys, L7, Chris Stills, Tommy Stinson — just a whole bunch of people stepped up. And we raised money to get her a wheelchair. I wanted to have a song to sing at that show for her, and “London Rain” was written to do at the benefit, but it became a song that would end up on the Meet Me At The End Of The World EP as well.” Read more News From current events to breakups, New York-based singer/songwriter reveals the inspiration behind the four tracks on his new EPNate HertweckGRAMMYs Aug 5, 2017 – 5:17 pm GRAMMY.comRunning all the way across Grant Park to catch an artist you want to see is a common practice at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Friday, Aug. 4 at noon, that was me rushing to catch New York troubadour Jesse Malin on the BMI Stage for the first set of the day. Rewarded for my efforts, I entered earshot just in time to hear the shimmering reverb-drenched guitar stabs in the opening notes of “She Don’t Love Me Know,” an undeniable number from Malin’s 2015 album, New York Before The War. What followed was a blistering set of tunes plucked from Malin’s prolific career, complete with rock and roll interstitials about love, breakups and opening up for his childhood idols Kiss at Madison Square Garden. As a member of D Generation and as a solo artist, Malin has accomplished a lot throughout his career thus far. So when I caught my breath and caught up with the highly acclaimed songwriter’s songwriter backstage, he took me through each of tracks on his new four-song EP, which features a title track that was possibly the highlight of his Lollapalloza set, and easily the feel-good song of the apocalypse: “Meet Me At The End Of The World.”  Facebook Twitter center_img Dive deeper into Jesse Malin’s mind with some of his favorite summer songs on his official Lollapalooza Spotify playlist.More Lollapalooza: Bishop Briggs Talks Psychics, Music Influences Inside Jesse Malin’s New EP, Track By Track jesse-malins-meet-me-end-world-ep-track-track Jesse Malin’s ‘Meet Me At The End Of The World’ EP: Track By Track Meet Me at the End of the World Email last_img read more
