MultiChoice, the leading entertainment company in Nigeria, has announced that it will be renumbering channels on the GOtv platform to improve the viewing experience of its customers. The renumbering of the GOtv channels will group similar channels together to make it easier for viewers to find and watch their favorite shows.
GOtv is embarking on this journey to optimize its channel numbering system and make it easier for customers to find their preferred programs and movies.
The aim is to improve the overall entertainment experience for GOtv viewers by making it easier to discover new content and keep up with their favorite programs.
Speaking on the objective of the renumbering, executive head of Content and West Africa Channels, Dr. Busola Tejumola, stated that the goal of MultiChoice is to provide the best family entertainment experience to viewers. “The new channel numbering system will make it easier for customers to find their favorite programs and discover new content, while also allowing for new channels to be added without too much disruption”.
The improved GOtv channel numbering approach will include blocks for flagship channels, popular local channels, movies, and telenovelas. This will help customers find the channels they want without excessive scrolling.
After the channel renumbering, Africa Magic Yoruba, Hausa, and Igbo will air on GOtv channels 2, 3, and 4 respectively. Africa Magic Epic, Family, and Urban are now housed on channels 6, 7, and 8, respectively.
Sports channels have also been relocated. SS Blitz, SS Football, and SS La Liga are now on channels 60, 61, and 62, while channels 80 to 86 now feature all kids’ channels including JimJam, Nick Junior, Disney Junior, PBS Kids, and more.
