UK set-top provider Pace is supplying boxes to MultiChoice Africa to support the launch of GOtv, MultiChoice’s new digital-terrestrial pay TV service for sub-Saharan Africa.
The GOtv service is being delivered to customers via Pace’s next generation set-top boxes, capable of receiving DVB-T2 standard transmissions. Pace set-top boxes have so far supported the launch of GOtv in Lusaka, Zambia in June and Entebbe/Kampala, Uganda in August, with further market launches planned by MultiChoice over the coming months.
“We’re really excited about the launch of DVB-T2 transmissions and the opportunity it offers us to provide a greater variety of programming to our subscribers through a more reliable broadcasting system. Pace’s history in DVB-T2 technology makes it the perfect partner to deliver this,” said Collins Khumalo, president of MultiChoice Africa.
