DSTV marks 15 years of exciting TV in Africa

DStv and Multichoice Ghana are Celebrating 15 years of pioneering and innovative pay television business that has kept abreast with world trends and world-class service. MultiChoice pioneered the launch of digital satellite broadcasting in Africa in 1995 with the launch of DStv and has since rolled out a multitude of new world class services and channel choices which have ensured that Africa is abreast with the latest trends and services available in digital technology.

Not only was DStv the first to provide digital satellite television services to Africa, it has also been the first in a number of other digital technology services, such as the Dual View decoder, the Personal Video Recorder (PVR), High Definition television (HD), DStv ON DEMAND (a video on demand services available on PVRs), DStv Mobile, which allows for television viewing on your mobile phone, as well as other ground-breaking enhanced services.

The Acting General Manager of Multichoice Ghana, Cecil Sunkwa-Mills says: “We are very proud of our achievement in consistently delivering cutting-edge digital technology that takes pay-TV to new levels and stimulates growth and innovation in Africa. Our DStv service provides world-class digital technology that delivers great pictures and sound quality to televisions in homes across the continent. We remain committed to DStv’s mission to provide our subscribers with the very latest in digital technology, the most exciting local and international television channels and support this offering with world-class customer service.”

To mark this milestone, Multichoice Ghana has a few surprises for its subscribers, both active and inactive.  There will be question and answer competitions to win 15 free one month Compact subscription, 15 free one month Family subscription or 15 free one month Access subscriptions.

Inactive subscribers will also be able to text send a text to request a free dish alignment and service maintenance.  They will also be activated onto the Freeview bouquet which is a bouquet of 16 free channels for 3 months.

Loyal annual paying subscribers will definitely not be left out.  MCG is giving a limited number of annual subscribers an offer of a 50% discount on the purchase of an HDPVR decoder within a 15 day period.

Multichoice as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility focuses on education (the Multichoice Resource Centre programme) by using digital satellite technology to support and enhance the learning and teaching experience across Africa.  In Ghana there are 20 such schools and MCG would like to give another 25 schools the opportunity to receive DStv hardware and the educational bouquet for free.  School principals will be able to enter the selection process by filling in an application form available from the Multichoice headoffice.

Keep an eye out for Multichoice staff as they carry out community services within Accra.

Multichoice Ghana and DStv wishes to thank its subscribers for their loyalty and support and for making the DStv service the pay television operator of choice. DStv assures its subscribers that the best is yet to come – there is still So Much More great television to look forward to. To its partners, thank you for fifteen years of fruitful partnerships.
