SLTMobitel-PEOTV Geared to Support School Children through Distance Learning

SLT- MOBITEL, the National ICT, Telecommunications and Mobile Services Provider continues to harness
the strength of the company’s technology to nurture young learners by providing a platform to access
distance education, through its flagship Internet Protocol Television service, PEOTV. Children are able to
access PEOTV directly through SLT-MOBITEL home broadband, and can also reach the households
nationwide through any ‘home broadband’ or ‘mobile broadband’ connection via SLTMobitel-PEOTV GO.
The revolutionary services that SLTMobitel-PEOTV has launched include ‘Videsa’, comprising six TV
channels dedicated to individual grades covering Grades 06 to 11, and the Education on Demand (EOD)
initiative which facilitates hassle free learning from the comfort of students’ homes, helping them watch
and study lessons at their convenience using the pause and rewind features. Additionally, through the
EOD service, a larger library of educational lessons provided by many reputed Educational Content
providers in the country such as GURU, Candela, DP Education, etc., offer students enhanced
convenience to watch lessons at any time.
Today, especially with repeated school closures for over a year due to the pandemic affecting the
education of millions of school children, SLTMobitel-PEOTV’s services have continued to impart

to empower our students with learning opportunities and provide access to education resources to
enrich their studies. Especially at this critical time, with the need to ensure students are fully engaged,
we are deeply appreciative of the initiative taken by the Ministry of Education towards creating a
dedicated TV platform. We are pleased to work closely with the Ministry, having received their
endorsement in taking this national task forward, by harnessing the unmatched capabilities of
SLTMobitel-PEOTV to provide the most preferred distance learning solution for uninterrupted education
nationwide through home broadband or mobile broadband of any service provider. Furthermore, the
SLT-MOBITEL Team is fully equipped and ready to stream the Content on LIVE TV, as soon as the
Ministry releases the Content to us.”

challenges of the pandemic, SLTMobitel-PEOTV is ready to assign 20 dedicated TV channels with 48
hours of rewinding facility featuring Content from the Ministry of Education. PEOTV is equipped to
