In line with its role to drive the digital migration, GOtv has launched more Free-To-Air channels on its platform. The channels include the River State Television (RSTV), Edo Broadcasting Service and Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State.
RSTV is a state-owned television station on Port Harcourt which airs local entertainment and news, children, sports programmes and international news. EBS, also a state-owned TV service, broadcasts news, current affairs, entertainment and lifestyle programmes. BCOS owned by the Oyo State government broadcasts mainly news, entertainment, educational and public enlightenment programmes. The channels are available in their respective states and will now be available to GOtv Plus, Value and Lite subscribers.
Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, said: “We are very excited about our new channel offerings and the role of GOtv in promoting local content and cultural values. It is a true testament of our vision to transform the pay- television landscape in the country and make digital television services a must – have for all Nigerians”. Ugbe added, “GOtv forms part of our broad-based strategy to contribute to Nigeria’s digital migration via sensible infrastructure investment and competitive service delivery. With the debut of RStv, EBS and BCOS on GOtv, our viewers in Rivers, Edo and Oyo States now have access to high-quality audio-visual channels to enjoy local news, entertainment and sport programmes. We are enabling, with great ease, the switch from analogue to digital TV to viewers across Nigeria.”
