2021 GOtv packages and channel lists

The African most popular pay-TV GOtv offers different packages that suit your need and I am going to list all the GOtv packages and channel lists to help you choose from the various packages.

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 packages and channel lists

GOtv came into the Nigerian market much later than DSTV. The purpose of its introduction is 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 packages are cheap is that certain premium sporting events aren't under those packages. This brings to bear the question of whether GOtv does broadcast football and other sporting events like the English Premier League.

Does GOtv Packages 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 packages like 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 the 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 packages Subscription Bouquets And Channels

Before making a purchase and despite having knowledge of the affordability of the GOtv packages compared to similar ones from other brands, it is sensible to get a review of those packages. Doing so would ensure you subscribe to the package which suits your need. The packages are as follows:

3.GOtv Jinja57₦1,640 monthly
4.GOtv Smallie Monthly36₦800
5.GOtv Smallie Yearly36₦6,200

GOtv Max Package

GOtv Max is the most pricey of all GOtv's monthly packages. It features five sports channels which are ESPN, SS football, SS Blitz, SS variety 3, and SS variety 4. These channels as explained above does broadcast live league matches but rarely features live EPL, Laliga, or UEFA champions league games.

Favourite kid channels like Nickelodeon and Disney Junior are covered under the package. This is in addition to music channels like Soundcity and MTV base. Popular channels like Televista, Zee world and some African Magic channels are all covered under the subscription.

Gotv Smallie Package Monthly

Fully deserving of its name, the Smallie package is one for low budget subscribers who couldn't do without family entertainment. The package has in its pack channels which would deservedly have been free-to-air, by reason of the fact that licences are not paid for by the pay-tv company to broadcast them.

The Smallie monthly package includes one sports channel, twenty local channels, one general entertainment channel, one child channel, two music channels, four religion channels, and four news and commerce channels.

The full channel list available on the GOtv Smallie package are as follows:

Gotv Smallie package 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.
