Etisalat offers cheaper international calls for Eid

And free viewing of its eLife TV channels for 10 days

Etisalat on Wednesday announced several Eid offers for its customers, including access to a discounted international call package and free viewing of its eLife TV channels for 10 days.

Etisalat’s prepaid subscribers can benefit from the international minute bundle, allowing them to call over 200 destinations at a special rate to exchange good wishes over the three days of Eid Al Fitr.

To subscribe, customers would have to send a toll-free sms "Eid" to 1012. They will be credited with 30 international minutes against a fee, which will be deducted from their credit balance.

Customers can purchase more than one bundle within the offer validity period. Once the bundle minutes have been exhausted, any usage would be charged as per the tariff plan of the customer. These minutes will be valid from 12am on the first day of Eid to the third day, based on the official announcement of Eid Al Fitr. Any unused minutes would expire at the end of the third day.

Etisalat’s postpaid plan subscribers also have access to low costs for their international calls. They can enjoy this facility by calling the customer contact centre and subscribing to international add-on facility, allowing them 100 international talk-time minutes.

Khaled El Khouly, Chief Marketing Officer, Etisalat, said, "We understand the importance of reaching out to your loved ones over Eid. This offer will help our loyal prepaid customers connect with their friends and family at this joyous time. Another Eid treat we are offering is free viewing of all eLife TV channels from August 8-17. This means customers will have unlimited access to over 480 TV channels -- including movies, lifestyle, sports, entertainment, documentary, news and infotainment channels - to choose from for free viewing for 10 days."
