    So this joke of a bank is also releasing an online TV channel? Have they fixed their crappy online banking services?

    I thought they were voted on Nairaland as the worse bank. What have they done about that before trying to compete with the likes of GTB with their outdated services? Lmao!

      You took the words right out of my head. I see these types of communication often leaving out the core factor i.e. the url of the said online tv… I’ve even gone to the UBA Group website to check. no link

    Brilliant initiative! Sounds like the ideas AIT had back in the day.

    On the downside, d name sounds synonymous with an adult channel as in “Red light district” i do understand however that branding played a role in d name.

    They have to work on d content though cos Nigerians have a short attention span.
