Residents of buildings managed by Betterhomes can look forward to a bumper new cable TV and multimedia package after E-Vision and Betterhomes signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

The MoU follows on from a similar deal between E-Vision and the Dubai Development Board, signed last year, and 200,000 homes are set to benefit from the agreement in this year alone. All homes and apartments managed by Betterhomes in cabled areas will receive the new cable service which includes over 65 television channels as well as interactive and pay-per-view channels.

However, before Beterhomes residents start getting too excited, the new service doesn’t come for free. Residents will still be expected to pay standard prices for E-Vision packages.

E-Vision hasn’t specified when it will start cabling Betterhomes buildings, but did stress that it is expected to happen within a short period of time. E-Vision hopes to the move will greatly increase its subscriber base, while Betterhomes believes this make its properties more attractive to home-owners.

Linda Mahoney, managing partner of Betterhomes said, “One of the aims of Betterhomes is to be at the forefront of developing technology in fields related to property management and real estate in general, and our agreement with E-Vision will enable us to do so.”

Humaid Rashid Sahoo, E-Vision’s chief executive officer, was equally pleased. “This is another excellent step for E-Vision and great news for the residents of Betterhomes,” he said. “The next few months will be very significant ones for E-Vision with a large number of major developments in our services and infrastructure.”
