GoTV Ghana – Packages To Choose From, Channels They Contain and How to Activate

The pay television industry is one of the profitable sectors that drives the Ghanaian economy. Thanks to the competitiveness between stakeholders in the business, pay television providers in Ghana ensure they offer views the best of services to remain in business. While DStv takes a big chunk of the cake as the most popular pay television provider in Ghana, it has had to fight for customers with Multi TV which is the dominant free-to-air satellite television service provider in the western African country. Then there is StarTimes which has gained a hold over viewers who prioritizes sports and GOtv which has thrived for its decision to dwell more on African programming.

Like DStv, GOtv is owned by MultiChoice, a South African company regarded as one of the fastest-growing pay-TV operators in the world. It has been claimed that the video entertainment outlet has found its way to over 13.5 million homes in Africa. You will find GOtv in at least nine African countries: South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Namibia, Uganda, Mozambique, and Ghana. GOtv Ghana, as it is with other countries, mainly consists of African and international programming as you would soon learn.
