Household name and Ghana’s number one entertainer, Viasat 1 is now on GOtv. Launching on the 23rd April, Viasat1 joins a lineup of channels that have given GOtv subscribers thrills, chills and spills with international movies, series, music as well as local productions and content.
A newcomer into Ghana’s television market, GOtv’s January arrival into Ghana has brought subscribers programming that is vast in quantity and entrenched in quality. Managing Director of GOtv Ghana Limited, Cecil Sunkwa-Mills, says that the arrival of Viasat1 is another example of GOtv’s growth and fruitful ambitions in the country.
“We are extremely proud to have Viasat1 on our platform. In the four years that the channel has been in the television industry, Viasat1 has matured into a household name that’s well-known for its diverse programming. With leading news productions, series, soapies, telenovelas and sports shows, Viasat1 is the perfect match for the diverse and compelling entertainment that GOtv offers. Both brands are growing in strength, footprint and offering, and we are certain the channel will be popular with our subscribers.”
Echoing Sunkwa-Mills’ sentiments, Chief Executive Officer of Viasat1 Charlotte Gustavsson, says GOtv is a fantastic platform for Viasat1 to gain more loyal viewers. “The Commercial Share of Viewing (CSoV) indicates that Viasat1 is currently the second biggest TV station in Ghana. With this partnership, we are going to affirm our mantra – being the Number 1 Entertainer – on the minds of our viewers. Through GOtv we can now reach new viewers and audiences in new territories – something that was not possible for us before.”
Viasat viewers get the best entertainment programming with quality African and Ghanaian productions like The One Show, Boys Boys, A Day In The Life, and the Monday to Thursday LIVE breakfast show – This Morning. The channel also has rights to award-winning Hollywood TV series such as the CSI franchises, Grey’s Anatomy, America’s Next Top Model and just recently, NCIS Los Angeles. Sports analysis programmes Sports Xtra and Football 360 also serve viewers the best of sporting news and discussions.
Another Viasat1 hallmark is the Latin-American telenovela genre which has been a big hit with viewers.
Viasat1 will be available on GOtv from the 23rd April, on channel 93.
