With the advent of digital migration, we are also keen on ensuring that we have adequate local content on our platforms and we believe this channel is a good step in that direction. TV Africa is the first of several local channels that will be signed on to compliment the great content that already sits on GOtv”.

Mr. Kwaw Paintsil Ansah, Managing Director of TV Africa added: “Our aim has always been to bring Africa to as many viewers as possible so that they finally appreciate the wonders of our continent.”
