The transition of the ownership of Sky Pacific to the Digicel business follows last year’s announcement of the agreement to acquire the Sky Pacific operations.
Digicel plans to raise the bar for Pay TV in the Pacific and has already engaged in discussions with various international content providers to acquire high quality TV shows and channels to boost the service and add value for all Sky Pacific customers – old and new.
With a diverse range of viewership across Samoa, Sky Pacific, under new ownership, is looking at multi-faceted programs to maintain interest and customer loyalty.
Today, all Sky Pacific customers in Samoa are advised to make their monthly account payments at the following selected Digicel Samoa outlets. For customers in Upolu, payments can be made either at the Digicel Vaimea outlet, or at the Digicel SNPF Plaza. For customers in Savaii, payments can be made at the Digicel Salelologa outlet.
Digicel Samoa Limited encourages all Sky Pacific customers, old and new to contact its SNPF Headquarters for further assistance or information. Direct lines have also been made available for direct assistance if required. For all Digicel customers, please contact 125 and for all Bluesky customers, please call +685 8480125 or send us an email via WS_DigicelTV@digicelgroup.com
