Windhoekers go for GOtv

six months since its launch, MultiChoice Africa’s television service provider, GOtv has been positively received by the Namibian market, the company’s Namibia PR and Communications Officer, Claudia Blohm has said.
With services including African channels, Africa Magic World, Africa Magic Movies, eAfrica, E!, NBC, plus others, Style, Select Sports, Discovery World, Nickelodeon, KidsCo, Channel O, One Gospel, TBN Africa, Islam Channel and Aljazeera from as low as N$55 per month, people in Windhoek, from all walks of life are now able to afford to be exposed to every platform of entertainment.
“Namibians have gradually accepted that GOtv is unique because it is very easy to install (plug and play) and the pricing of the product is designed to meet the viewing needs of the whole family at a very pocket friendly price. Imagine, a monthly subscription of N$55.00 for 15 channels?” she said.  
Currently GOtv is only available in Windhoek but the fact that it is priced as a mass-market product has seen it mushroom in the ghettos of the capital, where even those in shanty surburbs can afford it.
Blohm says later this year, the service will be expanded to other towns in Namibia.
She added, “DStv is a digital satellite television service whereas GOtv is a digital terrestrial service. The services are therefore different, but each service fulfils the needs of different market segments. GOtv is unique because it is very easy to install and anyone can afford it.”
