The Accra-based television station Citi TV will go online on DSTV today. A decision likely to significantly increase its audience to acquire a larger audience share. The DSTV platform operated by MultiChoice broadcasts in 50 sub-Saharan countries, including Cape Verde and Madagascar, and will give Citi TV a much wider reach.
A management statement said that viewers would benefit from relevant news and current affairs programming, as well as lifestyle, arts and culture and youth-focused content. When the switch to DSTV was first announced in December 2019, the station’s general manager, Samuel Attah-Mensah, said that the station was “poised to create more engaging programmes in the coming year as it prepares itself for the election 2020 coverage.”
According to the press release, Citi TV will also be on MultiChoices GOtv on channel 182. Before its last stage, Citi TV was widely available on the free digital platform and the Multi TV satellite package, reaching all 16 regions of Ghana. Its sister station, Citi FM, will also be on DStv 882 and GOtv 195.
Citi TV started to be officially broadcast on June 1, 2018 and in the relatively short period of its operation it has made significant breakthroughs with its attractive programs, promotions and campaigns, making it a favorite local channel among the 16 regions of Ghana.
