We are excited to launch our new SSE TV channel today and are honoured to be collaborating with our partners at Fintech.TV on this project.”
Vince Molinari, Co-Founder of Fintech.TV said: “It is truly an honor and privilege for FINTECH.TV to power SSE TV. We believe it is essential for everyone, individually and collectively, to take personal responsibility to advance global sustainability.
