GoTV Nigeria: Plans, Channels and Decoder Prices

86 Shares

GoTV Nigeria is a pay TV platform in Nigeria. It is owned by Multichoice Nigeria, the makers of DSTV, another popular pay TV platform.

You may be wondering what the difference between DSTV and GOTv is since they are both pay TV platforms owned by the same company.

Well, the difference between DSTV and GOTv is the technology used in transmitting their TV signals. DSTV deploys a satellite based technology while GoTV uses the DVB-T2 technology, a novel digital terrestrial broadcast technology.

GoTv is currently available in many countries across Africa which includes Zambia where it’s referred to as GoTv Zambia. Also, there’s GoTv Uganda, GoTv Ghana, GoTv Malawi, GoTv Namibia, GoTv Zimbabwe, and GoTv Kenya.

The strategy behind GoTV in Nigeria has made it a very popular and successful pay TV in the country.

Particularly GoTV is extremely pocket-friendly and has become highly sought after among low and middle income earners. Unlike DSTV, GoTv offers many exciting local and international channels for less.

Currently, GoTv Nigeria is the fastest growing pay TV in the country and many of the online conversations on pay TV in Nigeria often revolve around this platform.
