Ghana: New Card Offering From GOtv


In Accra, GOtv, the leading pay television service in Ghana, has released another product onto the market. GOcard, introduced in partnership with Hisense and Neotion, is said to be first offering of its kind in West Africa.

It is an electronic device (decoder) that slots into a compatible integrated digital television that is equipped with the appropriate hardware facility to view the television channels offered on the GOtv service .

The GOcard is a mini decoder but instead of being a separately powered device, it slots directly into a CI+ enabled digital television and functions as a single unit.

It is therefore equipped with the appropriate hardware facility to view GOtv.

The GOtv Ghana Director, Cecil Sunkwa-Mills, said, "Our philosophy is to remain innovate in order to continue to deliver the best possible digital television to the people of Ghana. GOtv delivers a selection of the best and exciting channels and African content in great picture and sound quality, making it the home of great channels."

According to him, currently the GOcard is compatible with the new Hisense 32", 39" and 46" integrated digital televisions and will retail as a bundled offer.

"The Hisense bundle offer is a perfect solution for anyone looking to buy a new TV and at the same time looking to subscribe to GOtv for great family entertainment," Sunkwa-Mills added.

Neotion Head of Sales and Marketing, St'phanie Bizouerne, said, "The launch of the GOcard reinforces Neotion's leading position on cardless technology as we continue to penetrate new markets outside Europe and especially emerging ones such as Sub-Saharan Africa.

"GOtv is set to have the largest DVB-T2 network in Ghana, granting Neotion a wider geographical coverage. We are very pleased to work with GOtv on this exciting new project and to offer our technology to new markets across Africa"

Marketing Manager Hisense Ghana, Yram Seinti said, "We are very excited about this partnership with GOtv not only because we're able to give the people of Ghana the latest and best technologies available, but this partnership put us at the forefront of technology as it is a first for West Africa."
