The integration with Viva Kuwait Telecom was completed and launched after the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan in mid July. During the month of August Mavshack has been marketed in Kuwait and the response has been extraordinary with over 100 000 daily subscriptions sold. Regarding older markets the growth in new customers were limited although the consumption of live sports* was high when it comes to volleyball. For basketball the growth in consumption was modest due to the discovery of several illegal piracy sites. Mavshack is working closely with the content owner in order for the content owner to close sites that publish PBA games without a proper license. This is of high importance to Mavshack in order to capitalize on the acquired license to publish live streaming of basketball from the Philippines. Mavshack also launched a 24/7 TV-channel** for Internet connected devices in USA and Canada but since this launch was in the second half of august it is too early for any conclusions.

After the launch in Kuwait, Mavshack's next launch is planned for Saudi Arabia, which is expected to start in September.

*) On July 12, Mavshack introduced live sports through the company's acquisition of license rights to the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) games for the current cup and the 2016-2017 Season and the Philippine SuperLiga (PSL) volleyball games for the same license period.

**) On August 18, Mavshack announced the introduction of the Kapatid TV5 linear grid as a live online TV channel for its North American subscribers.
