MultiChoice’s GOtv launches in Ghana

MultiChoice’s low-cost digital-terrestrial pay TV service GOtv has launched in Ghana.

The service includes a range of local and international channels, with an introductory offer of a decoder, three months’ subscription and a DTT aerial available for GHS153 (€70).

GOtv will broadcast all 32 games from the Africa Cup of Nations football tournament. Channels on the platform include Africa Magic, Africa Magic Movies, Blackbelt TV, Disney Junior, CNN, SuperSport Blitz, Select Sports, Discovery World, NatGeo Wild, Vox Africa and Channel O.

The service is broadcasting using the DVB-T2 standard, allowing a greater number of channels per frequency. The operating company, GOtv Ghana, has held a terrestrial broadcasting licence in the country since 1993.

The latest launch follows GOtv launches in a number of African countries including Zambia, Uganda and Nigeria over the last two years.

Correction: The above article originally erroneously stated that GOtv Mobile was formerly known as DStv Mobile. This is incorrect as both services exist independently.  GOtv Mobile is a value-add service of GOtv and provides great content that is suitable for mobile viewing. DStv Mobile provides a great selection of programming suited to mobile entertainment and is a value-add service of DStv.
