Do you have an HD TV?

Did you know that you need a subscription that includes HD (High Definition) channels to get the full 'almost like being there' experience from your HD TV? We offer 23 HD channels through our eLife triple play and e-vision services so you can get the full high definition experience on your HD TV. Ten of those are sports channels because sports, and especially football, is the one of the places where HD TV truly makes a difference. We're crazy about football here at Etisalat and watching your favourite team in HD is the next best thing to being at the match in person.

Of course this month we have football clubs from across the world right here in the UAE. With all the teams for the FIFA Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi we all get the chance to enjoy matches live as well as in HD TV at home, and the lucky winner of our #3x3HD twitter contest will get the best seats in the house for the final game on December the 18th.

#3x3HD contest on twitter

Here's how the contest works. We'll ask one question every day for three days on twitter. To win a place in the draw you must answer correctly before we tweet the answer on the following morning. If you answer correctly your name goes into the draw to win THREE category 1 tickets to the final on December 18 at Zayed Sports City. So watch for our tweets starting on Thursday 9th. We will tweet one question each day. Please include the hashtag #3x3HD in your answers.

Good luck. Tweet with us @EtisalatUAE if you have queries and wait for those questions!
