GOtv launches in Rwanda

South African pay TV operator MultiChoice’s digital-terrestrial pay TV service GOtv has launched in Rwanda.

Rwandans who purchase a GOtv set-top will receive two months’ subscription bundled in.

The service faces competition in Rwanda from China’s StarTimes. MultiChoice’s DStv platform is also available in the country.

The GOtv service is being launched in partnership with local media group Tele 10, which last year unveiled plans to launch a mobile TV offering in association with Net-M, a German NTT Docomo affiliate, France’s Mobibase and Germany’s Cyberroute.

GOtv is currently available in Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
