DStv provider MultiChoice will soon be launching South Africa’s first digital terrestrial television (DTT) platform, which will be known as GOtv. GOtv is a DTT service that the company already offers in other African countries.
The service, according to technology news website TechCentral, will cost users R99 per month for a so-called “Value” bouquet. Included in the bouquet is M-Net Movies Zone, Africa Magic Epic, Mzansi Wethu, Mzansi Bioskop, TLC Entertainment, NickToons and Disney Junior. As far as sports go (the major reason you want a paid-for TV service, let’s be honest), viewers get SuperSport Blitz and SuperSport Select at their fingertips.
Decoders and an antenna, called a GOtenna, will be going on sale shortly at R700 and R300 respectively. MultiChoice have also made a DTT coverage map available.
MultiChoice has an official GOtv unveiling scheduled for tomorrow morning, where any additional pertinent information about the service should be made available. We’ll keep you posted.
