- Post Report, Kathmandu
Aug 18, 2015- Kantipur Media Group (KMG) on Tuesday night launched a new futuristic digital news platform, Ekantipur that hopes to revolutionise reading experience for its subscribers.
The new platform hosts Ekantipur app--an upgraded version of the KMG application, seven websites of The Kathmandu Post, the Kantipur daily, Nepal, Nari, Saptahik, Radio Kantipur and Kantipur Television, and a mobile SMS news subscription service.
The platform was developed following two years of back-end research spearheaded by Kantipur Digital Corp (KDC), KMG’s digital wing.
The Kathmandu Post’s digital edition is available at kathmandupost.ekantipur.com. The new website will give readers a richer experience through multi-media and other exclusive contents.
As well as providing contents from all the outlets of KMG, the Ekantipur app will enable users to view epapers in high resolution.
This is the third digital upgrade for The Kathmandu Post and its sister publications. In 1999, the Post was the first newspaper in South Asia to have its own website. Suman Pradhan was the founding editor of the Kantipuroline.com. Current Editor-in-Chief of The Post, Akhilesh Upadhyay also oversaw the site in 2005.
The new digital platform is supported by the latest technology, including 22 high speed servers in Nepal and the United States.
