GOtv Service Launch Excites Lokoja Residents
Residents of Lokoja, Kogi State, have expressed excitement as GOtv, Nigeria’s leading Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) service provider, beamed its service live in Lokoja on June 1.
According to a resident who identified himself as Hamed, said, “GOtv service in Lokoja is a welcome development for competition in the market. We have StarTimes and Kwese TV here. It’s good that we now have a very good competitor in GOtv. We’ve been hearing how good and affordable GOtv is, especially for sports. Not everyone can afford DStv. I heard some of the top DStv channels are also available on GOtv. So that’s a very good one for us.”
Another resident, Rasak Idris, said GOtv coming to Lokoja was long overdue. “I still don’t know why it took GOtv this long to come to Lokoja. But it’s still a welcome development because the more options you have on pay TV, the better for customers. And indirectly, it’s more business and employment for residents.”
In a bid to make it easier for prospective consumers to jump on the train of GOtv, the DTT giant slashed the price of its decoder and GoTenna from N9,500 to N6,900, making it more affordable for residents.
