Brief History of GoTv in Nigeria
As i said earlier, GoTv is a digital Pay Tv service that is not satellite base i.e does not require installation of dish.
It uses broadcast method that is similar to what the likes of NTA and AIT use but with better video and audio quality.
It was launched into Nigerian market in 2012. GoTv was first launched in OYO state capital (Ibadan) as GoTv Nigeria and it was offering 20 channels then.
GoTv coverage has gradually extended to all Nigerian cities and towns in the past 8 years and still making their services better.
Though there have been complaint from subscribers on their website and social media pages about their poor service in some location.
I have experienced great GoTv quality in locations like Port-Harcourt, Lagos, Oyo and Osun state. So it will be wrong to say their service is perfect but it will be even more wrong to say it is very bad.
GoTv Nigeria does a very great job at providing great video and audio quality on all their packages/bouquets when their network is stable.
How To Renew your GoTv
GoTv offers myriads of payment platforms that you can pay your subscription fee through and this includes the following:
- Any Multichoice Africa branch near you
