MTN Nigeria has launched the MTN Mobile Newspaper. The newly launched service provides an opportunity for Nigerians to receive alerts from some of Nigeria’s popular news services on the go.

According to MTN:

The service provides the most up to date news on the local and international scene, sports news, entertainment news, fashion news, Finance news, the latest Job vacancies and more.

MTN customers no longer need to buy and flick through newspapers or go to internet to check the latest events in any of the categories listed above. The messages are delivered in MMS format, with pictures included for maximum customer experience. Customers will therefore get the `newspaper experience` on their mobile phones courtesy of MTN Mobile Newspaper.

To subscribe to the “MTN Mobile Newspaper” text ‘HELP’ to 4900 to see the list of Mobile Newspaper products available. You can also text the keyword of your preferred service to 4900 to activate.
