Guests who turned out at the National Indoors Sports Centre on Wednesday evening were witnesses to the start of a revolution.

Thanks to Flow, cable television will never be the same. The company staged a glitzy, high-energy launch of some groundbreaking offerings which are sure to delight the company's huge customer base.

But before guests were treated to the details of the new offerings, guests, growing more curious and eager by the second, were skilfully distracted by delectable hors d'oeuvres prepared by the talented Jacqui Tyson and her team. Among the tasty treats were yummy morsels of jerked pork, jerked sausage and to-die-for cocktails which reflected the energy of the night. A mini-light show and pulsating dance beats took the energy level through the roof.

Soon, it was time. The big reveal was left to be handled by Donovan White, vice-president of marketing and sales, who undertook this task in spectacular fashion. Rope and shadow dancers heralded the arrival of Flow's new standard High-Definition set-top box, which is the source of all-new features being offered.

With this new box, customers can record over 100 hours of programming, pause, rewind and fast-forward their favourite shows in real time, and even record two shows at once. All that power will be in the palm of your hand via a new, sleeker remote. Finer details of the new offerings will surely become the talk of the town soon, and if Wednesday's launch is anything to go by, Flow is all set to revolutionise entertainment in Jamaica
