“Airtel takes great measures to understand each customer closely, engage them and introduce something new as our customer loyalty is all about being relevant and superior. Consumer behaviour is changing rapidly and for them to remain loyal, we must identify and meet their requirements even before they express them. Being a telecommunications service provider, it gives us the opportunity of connecting people and contribute to the growth of industries in a country. Airtel will continue to invest more in high quality content from entertainment to education for the benefit of the youth of Sri Lanka,” Mr. Jinesh Hegde, Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Lanka, stated.

Sharing his views concerning the new initiative, Chief Executive Officer / Managing Director of Evoke International Mr. Lahiru Wickramesinghe said, “Airtel’s partnership with Evoke is one among many such initiatives that aim to invigorate the market and usher in superior services to Sri Lankan customers.”

The exclusive service will be available for android phone users via an app, while other smartphone users can enjoy the service via www.videounlimited.lk. Any user can subscribe on a daily basis without requiring a monthly commitment, as the subscription is paid by the day.

“The Airtel Movie Box – powered by the Vindana mobile application, is a truly remarkable mobile application that adds value to the local entertainment industry. It largely benefits all Airtel customers, as they now have access to a vast variety of local movies on their very own mobile device, opposed to having to visit the cinema, in order to watch a new movie release. I applaud Evoke International and Airtel Sri Lanka, for its support in the propelling of the local entertainment industry; and I am proud that our nation has been given the opportunity to explicitly present its rich culture and values.” Actor & Director – Mr. Channa Perera stated.
