“GOtv provides the greatest selection of local channels made in Africa for Africa. Our reliable service is one you can trust. Experience the digital revolution in your home. Right from the beginning, our message was simple: ‘It was Go’, ‘A clarion call’, ‘Get a digital decoder and join in the digital migration’. Today, we are offering even more with a promise for crystal-clear pictures and quality entertaining.
“We also wanted to be hyper-local, using local lingo, slangs, and landmarks which our audience could relate to, because our subscriber-targets are grassroot based. So, we can boldly say we are the leaders in DTT (Digital terrestrial television); our customers are testifying to that too. We were the first to launch the approved DVB-T2 decoders in Nigeria in 2011; first DTT pay-tv to carry radio channels, among other accomplishments in the last five years,” she said.
The Station promised to continue its ‘local content focus’, adding that even in the tough economic climate, they are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the customer, which informed the launch of the new subscription offers.
