Milicom has formed a strategic partnership with Netflix to have Netflix app preloaded to Android smartphones for Tigo mobile customers in Latin America enabling them to use their mobile devices to discover a diverse selection of movies and TV shows on Netflix. Customers who buy select TigoSmart mobile and TigoStar residential plans will also receive a prepaid Netflix subscription as part of a promotional offer.
Millicom, through Tigo and TigoUNE, serves more than 2.5 million homes connected in Latin America and more than 32 million mobile customers across 7 countries: Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Paraguay.
In its statement, Millicom also shared its plans to extend its cable network to more than 10 million homes to become the second largest cable provider across its footprint. This collaboration will enable Tigo to further enhance its leading bundle of television, internet, and mobile services and continue to grow its appeal to its high value customers.
