TV47, the ‘Home of Untold Stories’, is now available on Kenya’s largest pay-TV platform, GOtv, channel 102.

TV47 will be available on all five GOtv packages – GOtv Supa, GOtv Max, GOtv Plus, GOtv Value and GOtv Lite.

“TV47 is Kenya’s fastest-growing Free-To-Air (FTA) station and we are happy to onboard them to GOtv today. GOtv customers across all our five packages now have an increased slate of local content from this highly performing channel,” said Multichoice Managing Director Nacy Matimu.

TV47 is already on the DStv platform (Channel 268), where it has made tremendous strides now for a second year running.

“Our entry into GOty will enhance our reach,” says Abubakar Abdullahi, TV47 Chief Executive Officer. “It also comes with a variety of new exciting programmes, both entertainment and educational.”

The new shows include The Bride of Judas; A Legendary Love, and Darkness of The Soul, telenovelas that premiere this month.

“We are also approaching the electioneering period and TV47 will be the go-to station for all political commentary, interviews, profiles and breaking news,” says Abdullahi.

TV47 broadcasts in both Kiswahili and English. Its rich content also includes shows on tertiary education, a first for a television station in Kenya.

The onboarding of TV47 to the GOty family coincides with the launch of a brand new GOtv Supa package.

The new package offers a range of lifestyle and entertainment channels (like TV47) featuring more entertainment for kids, drama-filled telenovelas, and crucially, more local content.

“With the festive season fast approaching, families need affordable ways to spend time together. The launch of this entertainment-focused GOty package will allow our subscribers to do exactly that,” says Matimu.

“With more choice and greater entertainment value, the new GOty SUPA package joins an already extensive line up of content offering available to our GOty customers, to ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy on GOty this holiday.”

GOtv Supa subscribers will be able to view all the sporting action and channels available on GOtv Max, with an additional 17 lifestyle and entertainment channels for Ksh1,499 per month.

GOtv customers can purchase the GOtv decoder plus a one-month GOtv Plus subscription for Ksh1,299.
