To ensure the most up-to-date information about COVID-19, Africa’s most-loved storyteller, MultiChoice Group (MCG) will provide broadened access to credible information at this time, by making news channels more widely available across the continent.

From today the group has included CNN (channel 401), Euronews (channel 414), BBC Word News (channel 400), Aljazeera (channel 406) and Africanews (channel 417), as well as the many other local DStv news channels in markets.

GOtv customers will also get the brand-new channel Africanews (channel 47) available on GOtv Max and Jolli. While BBC News (channel 41) and CNN (channel 42) will be open to GOtv Max, Jolli and Confam customers.

“We have been in constant communication with health authorities such as the World Health Organisation, and we will be rolling out Africa-wide public service announcements on COVID-19. It is important that all of us take heed of the announcements and advice from trusted experts so that we can look after our own health and that of our loved ones,” MultiChoice Nigeria’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. John Ugbe, said.

The video entertainment company is not only expanding its content offering for news, but there will also be more kids shows, movies and curated sports content. We are making revision accessible for lessons from our educational channel Mindset (DStv Channel 319) available on catch up; while also adding educational channels Da Vinci (DStv 318 and GOtv 66) until the end of May to help keep young minds stimulated and engaged. PBS packed with thrilling content opens to DStv Access (DStv Channel 313) and GOtv Jolli (GOtv Channel 65).

“In light of the disruptions to the school year in some markets, we are also working to provide access to the best available educational content, to help keep young minds stimulated and engaged,” continues Ugbe.

Live sports has suffered a notable impact globally as a result of sporting federations correctly prioritising the safety of players and fans alike, by adhering to accepted measures to limit the spread of COVID-19. MCG has acquired the best award-winning sport documentaries from around the globe and produced thematic channels for sports fans to relive the greatest sporting moments of all time.
