History and Development

Since its inception in 2005 with the merger of Maldives Cable and J-Sat Communications, Medianet has greatly matured and expanded in 16 years of its lifetime in terms of service, content, data and technology. Initially, with our cable services being only available in Male’ we worked over the years to expand to the rest of Kaafu Atoll. Ultimately, we are proud to provide the full depth and breadth of our reach to 164 islands, which is more than 90% of inhabited islands in the Maldives. In 2021 we have launched MS Digital application where you will be able to watch your favorite Medianet channels on the go and on any device. Smart TV (Android, LG, Samsung) application named "Medianet" was also launched during this year that lets you enjoy all the benefits of an interactive cable tv service without the need for a decoder/set top box (STB).



Taking into consideration the unique requirements, usage and demand in Maldives, Medianet takes pride in utilizing custom made products that are developed in-house by their very own experts and engineers. We strongly believe in supporting local SMEs and therefore, focus on collaborating with locally owned businesses from around the nation to carry out regional partnerships.
