No all cable operators within the Caribbean region are required to removal all channels to which they are do not have the rights to air.
Flow has worked to ensure compliance with the mandate regarding international intellectual property rights and we have sought to replace removed channels with similar content, for example we replaced Encore with HBO Family. In full we have had to stop showing 25 channels and 18 of these were replaced with a similar line up, in some cases however similar replacements have not been possible such as The Choice Channel, the Tennis channel, Willow Cricket and Starz. We however continue to work to enhance the viewing line up with additional great channels such as Warner, Sony, HBO Caribbean, Feva TV, Flow Sports with exclusive content and Premier League football.
Flow’s Terms and Conditions of Service advises our customers that channel line-ups may be altered at any time and that such amendments would not affect the fees payable by the customer. Package prices are not determined on a per channel/per content basis. Here in Antigua, our Flow TV package has more channels than the regional average and yet our retail package price is significantly lower than other markets. We believe we offer great value for money and have doubled the number of channels offered since we launched without raising prices to match.
Flow did not yet have the approval to air all of channels by the content or channel owners, however we have been negotiating with these organisations for years to obtain rights however the authorisation of rights for a particular part of the world or to a particular company is always a business decision. Unfortunately in some cases these channel and content owners have decided that they prefer not to have their content aired in the Caribbean unless it is on a programme by programme basis on free to air channels. At the end of the day we must comply. The issue of Flow and other local cable operators airing unapproved content is an industry issue meaning that most Pay TV providers have been managing this since the inception of “cable tv” in the Caribbean.
If there is no update, it means that you are on an older SIM card. You are not required to change your SIM card, however your phone will display LIME until you do. If you wish to change your SIM card then you may visit a LIME or Flow location to do so.
You must restart your phone. If you are out of network range the updates will take effect once you reconnect and your phone will reflect Flow. Otherwise, the next time you are out of our network range the settings will automatically be pushed to your device and display Flow when you’re back on network.
On return to your home location, the settings will automatically be pushed to your mobile device and reflect Flow
No, until further advised there will be no change to your service.
The fact is, and ECTEL has confirmed, that CWC does not need approval to merge in these markets. Consequently we are moving ahead with the launch and rebranding to Flow in all of our markets across the Caribbean.
The changeover will take place over the next 7 days from today through 29th March 2016
Based on the merger of Cable and Wireless Communications and Columbus, we launched our new consumer brand, Flow. As such we are in the process of a rebranding exercise to the new Flow across all of our markets in the Caribbean.
