B-Trowa is an over the top application to stream video on demands, audio on demands, live televisions and live radios. The service was initially launched in May 2019 to our subscribers with limited movies and live television shows. The platform is now enhanced based on the feedback from customers to make it more versatile, subscription based packages, flexible validity, improved security, privacy and user interface along with more payment channels to avail the services. Subscribers can now purchase subscription packages and pay per view contents through main balance (Talk time) or through B-Wallet and B-Ngul using BT’s self-care app. We have also introduced dedicated data plans which would provide almost 90% more data quota to access B-Trowa content. We have introduced broadly three subscription packages- Silver, Gold and Platinum which have monthly, half yearly and yearly validity apart from pay per view contents which the subscribers can purchase and view for limited duration.
These streaming services are provided through mobile handsets and browser based web portal. We have currently Two live Television channels (BBS 1 & BBS 2), seven Radio channels ( BBS Radio1, BBS Radio2, Kuzu FM Dzongkha, Kuzu FM English and RadioValley FM) and more than 200 Dzongkha Movies. We are also in discussion with content providers to have latest movies and other contents to stream through this B-Trowa service platform exclusively. This platform is designed to provide services to our subscribers who cannot make it to theatres and especially during pandemic such as Covid-19 to keep them entertained
