One of the nation’s Pay TVs, GOtv, has identified the need to revolutionise digital satellite television broadcasting in Nigeria by providing television premium contents at affordable price, as one of the motivating factors for setting up the digital terrestrial television.
A statement signed by the General Manager, DStv Mobile West Africa, Mayo Okunola, explained that in assembling the channels and the content of GOtv, the providers have achieved the set objective of liberalising the pay-TV terrain in Nigeria.
According to Okunola, since the subscription is less than 10 percent of the minimum wage, this is the first time premium TV content can be said to have been truly democratised.
‘GOtv bouquet has a total of 25 channels while GOtv Plus has all the 25 channels on GOtv plus additional seven channels, including CNN, Sony Entertainment TV (SET), SuperSport Blitz, NatGeo Wild, Disney Junior, MTV Base and the primary AfricaMagic channel; bringing the total to about 32.
‘For lovers of African entertainment, GOtv offers five AfricaMagic channels. These are: AfricaMagic, AfricaMagic Hausa, AfricaMagic Movies, AfricaMagic World and AfricaMagic Yoruba,’ Okunola stated.
Okunola reiterated the company’s commitment to its goal of continually providing its customers with affordable premium contents
