GOtv Subscription Packages 2021 — The Bouquets In Details
Posted on: January 11, 2021, 11:29:37 PM
GOtv is a pay television service owned by Multichoice, which itself is also the parent company of DSTV, another popular pay television. Unlike DSTV, GOtv employs the use of terrestrial TV protocols to broadcast its signals. Opting for terrestrial technology rather than satellite communication ensures the subscription cost is kept low although at an expense: an outlay of quality.

In terrestrial broadcast, audio and picture quality is lesser than the former. This makes GOtv a less favourable pay-tv service compared with those transmitted through satellites to earth dishes.

GOtv came into the Nigerian market much later than DSTV. The purpose of its introduction being to capture the market left behind by DSTV due to the latter's expensive subscription bouquets. Compared to DSTV subscription packages, GOtv subscriptions are way cheaper being that it uses terrestrial broadcast technology. Another reason GOtv's subscriptions are cheap is that certain premium sporting events aren't under those packages. This brings to bare the question whether GOtv do broadcast football and other sporting events like the English Premier League.

Does GOtv Broadcast EPL And UEFA Champions League Live Matches

Although exclusive licence to broadcast the English premier league has been offered Supersport, a splinter company of Multichoice, the Supersport EPL channel has yet to be added to any of GOtv's package.

Notwithstanding, the ‘Supersport football’ channel available in some of GOtv's packages broadcasts some premier league live matches, although not the cardinal ones. You wouldn't also be able to watch live UEFA champions league matches on any of GOtv's package as the ‘SuperSport football plus’ channel which broadcast such is unavailable in any of the packages.

Pay Per View — Unavailable On GOtv

A pay per view payment model in respect to broadcast communication implies that a subscriber gets charged based on channels viewed daily rather than by a mandatory periodic charge with no regard to whether you accessed your TV under the period. With a pay per view model you get served what you paid for during the period you so which.

Unfortunately, GOtv operates no such model. The only known broadcaster which offers such service is TSTV. Multichoice when encouraged to follow in same path argued that the model is unachievable because unlike in telecommunication which such is employed in call billing, being a one-way communication, there is no way broadcasters can determine whether subscribers are viewing a particular channel at an instant.

However, although there's no pay per view structure with GOtv, the subscription packages offered are quite affordable and all packed with exciting channels.

Gotv Smallie Yearly

This package packs the same channels which the Smallie monthly has, with the difference being the price and duration of subscription. While the Smallie monthly serves a month's duration, the Smallie Yearly package valids through twelve months (a year).

Subscribing to the yearly pack is much better and worthy a decision than going for the monthly pack. If the N6,200 subscription price is split into twelve month, each month's payment would have been about N500; a much discounted sum.
