FLOW TV is finally here in the BVI and at a special product launch on 20 July residents were introduced to the telecommunication company’s IPTV Streaming platform and the various packages associated with it. By all descriptions, the competition is most welcomed in the Territory.
In a presentation to the gathering, General Manager of Flow, Colin MacDonald boasted that FLOW TV introduces customer to over 120 channels and video on demand content.

The General Manager emphasized that the inflated Spanish mix that is currently experienced by cable customers is not an issue for FLOW as it was mentioned the company has US licensed content thanks to its affiliation with Liberty Global — the cable empire that owns Virgin Media, and is referred to as the US “king of cable”.
Additionally it was noted that some of the issues that mars FLOW’s broadband services such as lack of support, and pricing will not affect FLOW TV.
