Timbuktu and other big names in Swedish Hip-Hop on Telia mobiles

Just over a month ago Timbuktu and some of the biggest names in Swedish Hip-performed to rave reviews at Joe’s Pub in New York City. Now Swedish fans can enjoy the performance too. At 20.00 on 2 February, Telia is releasing film of the New York concert on its digital channels.

Telia mobile subscribers with a 3G handset can watch the concert on their mobile via the Telia SurfPort portal. To make it more user friendly, the concert is divided into eight parts. The concert can be seen in its entirety on broadband at teliastartsidan.se and on Telia Digital-TV. The concert was arranged by Juju Records and the hour-long film features Timbuktu, Chords, Spotrunnaz, Looptroop and Damn.

“We want to offer our customers the opportunity to experience music whenever they like wherever they like,” says Indra Åsander, Head of the Private Segment for TeliaSonera Sweden.

Additional material from Timbuktu including four songs downloadable as real tones, is available at Telia SurfPort and teliastartsidan.se – a Swedish first, as the songs have previously only been available as polyphonic ring tones.

The concert will be available at Telia channels until 2 May.

Watching the concert on Telia Digital TV and at teliastartsidan.se will be free of charge. Telia SurfPort will pay the customer access charge of up to SEK 9 per day.
