Cheaper viewing bouquet launched
There are 15 channels on Gotv which cater for different viewing needs from news to children’s programmes.
According to Claudia Blomn of Multichoice, the Gotv broadcast will be expanding over the next few months, however the launch signal will only be available in certain parts of Windhoek. while full coverage will only be available later this year.
Speaking at the launch,Deputy Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Stanley Simataa said that Namibia was the first country in Southern Africa to launch DTT services and that the launch of Gotv is yet another milestone.
He added that the new technology will not only benefit the government but everyone and that it will revolutionise television as we know it
DVB-T2 allows more channels to be broadcast using the same bandwidth as one current analogue channel uses.
“With this technology, television viewers will be able to choose from a much wider range of channels while at the same time getting better sound and picture quality. As our country progresses on its development path, demand for services and entertainment is likely to increase,” he said.
The service was launched with a special offer of N$499, which includes a decoder and 3 months free subscription. The offer is available at MobiPay, Pick n Pay and Woermann Brock outlets in Windhoek. GOtv offers a great selection of channels from as low as N$55 per month.
