Uyo - MultiChoice on Wednesday launched GOtv to give digital television entertainment to residents of Uyo.
Addressing the media at the launch, the General Manager of GOtv, Lizzy Amkpa, said the network would make quality pay-tv services affordable to homes that could not afford its premium services offered on DSTV.
She said that most of the programmes on GOtv would focus on African channels, to project African values to the rest of the world.
Amkpa said that GOtv had already switched over from analogue to digital broadcast, ahead of the scheduled date of June 2015.
She said that subscribers would not need to replace or upgrade their decoders as they had been upgraded to the latest technology.
“GOtv currently offers the GOtv, GOtv plus bouquets and the newly-added GOtv-open which will provide the best solution for television consumers to receive their local free-to-air channels with digital quality.”
“GOtv is not only passionate about digital television but is also passionate about Africa, which is why we focus on African channels to project the continent’s rich culture to the rest of the world.”
“GOtv is delivered to homes in Nigeria via the use of the latest DVB-T2 technology which guarantees a one-off migration to the digital age.” Amkpa said.
The general manager said that digital TV subscribers would also have access to selection of channels ranging from news, sports, children’s programming and documentaries.
